This chapter performs a historical and conceptual analysis of MLG in order to tease out its distinguishing traits and allow for its utilization in both empirical and normative terms. MLG is seen as a three‐dimensional concept that crosses and problematizes three analytical distinctions: that between center and periphery, that between state and society, and that between the domestic and the international. Each dimension or axis is taken up in a distinct chapter. Through the combination of these dimensions, a three‐dimensional conceptual space is generated, within which empirically falsifiable propositions can be situated.
