Despite the diversity of SGOs, they all share certain features. First, they rely on the free flow of information among members. Second, members, rather than state agents, write, monitor, and enforce rules that guide the SGO. SGOs have autonomy from state agents either through recognition of the rights of the organization or the failure of state agents to intervene. Third, group members themselves levy sanctions without resorting to an outside party to pay for the enforcer. Fourth, SGOs present crosscutting incentives for their members.
Analysts often examine SGOs in environments beyond the reach of the state or in pre-state environments like medieval Europe, frontier territories, or isolated agricultural units (Ostrom 1990; Milgrom, North, and Weingast 1990; Greif, 1993, 1994; Greifand Kandel 1995). Other studies focus on small, tight-knit groups in which the state plays little governing role (Ellickson 1991; Bernstein 1992). This approach simplifies the analysis of the strategies of individual group members, but it also limits the scope of these theories.
