The Decay of Consent: International Law in an Age of Global Public Goods
                                                                     Nico Krisch        1
      International law's consent-based structure is often seen as inadequate for solv-
      ing global public goods problems. Many commentators therefore project a turn
      toward nonconsensualism. This article focuses on three issue areas-interna-
      tional antitrust, climate change, and terrorism financing-to analyze whether we
      can observe such a turn. In the picture that emerges, international law retains
      much of its consensual character but is increasingly sidelined in favor of other,
      especially informal and unilateral, modes of governance in which consent plays
      a more limited role and hierarchy is often pronounced.
