Multilevel governance that spans beyond traditional hierarchical
steering within states creates new policy enforcement challenges because
it involves autonomous administrations of different jurisdictions in a
single administrative act. Scrutinizing concrete new coordination tools,
the article aims at conceptualizing coordination strategies and
instruments to overcome structural problems in multilevel policy
execution and trans-boundary administration. The empirical findings on
instrument innovation in the European Union highlight the increased
strategic promotion of horizontal administrative coordination. The
functioning logic and autonomy-preserving character of such vertical
coordination makes it a potential solution to functionally equivalent
enforcement challenges on the global scale, exemplified by the
administrative implementation of international trade agreements.
