Supranational Organization

An organization that exists in multiple countries. While, theoretically, supranational could refer to multinational corporations, the term most often describes an international government or quasi-government organization. Examples include the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund. Supranational organizations often have a direct role in regulation. For example, an international treaty may set up certain standards for international trade. However, enforcement of these provisions is left to individual, sovereign governments.

Behind Patrick's determinism is transnational progressivism, which holds that national sovereignty (including democratic sovereignty) must be attenuated because "global problems require global solutions." Hence, global or supranational institutions and a binding "global rule of law," are necessary in the coming interdependent world to achieve "global governance." This globalist order is different from an internationalist framework built on relations between sovereign nation states: in the former, nations cede crucial elements of sovereignty to transnational and supranational institutions.
