Mechanisms of Influence of International Regimes: Two Cases
Pages 50

As we have seen, the constellations of international regimes concerning PGRFA

management have substantially affected Philippine policies. How then is it that

international regimes can influence domestic policies in a country? Understanding

these mechanisms of influence will put us in a better position to see what action

is required at the international level. For our embedded case studies we have

selected the two policies most directly influential for PGRFA management in the

country – Executive Order 247 and the Plant Variety Protection (PVP) Act. Our

analysis will be guided by the theory framework developed in Chapter 3 and the

method set out in Chapter 4.
