Abstract This article states that the discipline of international relations has paid only scarce attention to the debates on knowledge that have taken place in neighboring disciplines. A notable exception is the epistemic community framework that amounts in this article to a first narrative of knowledge. By means of challenging this narrative of knowledge, the article suggests a second narrative of knowledge that is derived from literature in science and technology studies. This narrative is further illustrated through a discussion on the epistemic authority of the Forest Stewardship Council and the newly established Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.
