State power, political values and treaty ratification: a comprehensive analysis of international 'quasi-constitutional' agreements

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research on treaty commitment suffers from a lack of a comprehensive analysis of ratification behavior. Addressing this deficiency, we have compiled an inclusive data set, comprising 32 international agreements which we call quasi-constitutional. Such an encompassing approach not only yields a more complete picture of international law. It also enables us to go beyond the simple ratification analysis of one or several agreements, and to study systemic cross-treaty ratification patterns. The aim of this paper is to investigate in a systemic manner why and when states commit to international agreements. Since domestic factors, such as national power, are frequently neglected in existing commitment research, we focus on the effect of state power on treaty commitment. We do so by examining conditional effects of state power, measured by a newly composed indicator of national material capabilities and political values as embedded in the type of political regime on treaty commitment. Our findings indicate that state power conditioned by political values decisively shapes national ratification behavior. In sum, our paper yields more precise insights about which states are more likely to cooperate in the international arena
