The proliferation of foreign associations and their impression has develop into a vital factor in diplomacy. Why do international locations agree to foreign agreements and the way do overseas associations impact nationwide regulations? so much theories concentrate on the level to which foreign associations can wield 'carrots and sticks' at once of their kinfolk with states.

Example text

Accordingly, what is the comparative advantage of nonbinding agreements and weak international institutions? Given the enormous resource constraints facing many international institutions, answers to these questions have important policy implications. 3 Monitoring arrangements As chapter 2 has suggested, work on international institutions has been greatly shaped by the repeated PD game. In light of this model, international institutions resolve the collective action problem by providing compliance information and thereby facilitating compliance mechanisms such as reciprocity or reputation (Keohane 1984).

Although institutional outcomes are complex phenomena that implicate multiple theories, I am mainly concerned with the political economy of monitoring arrangements. From a primarily rationalist perspective, I assume that states are guided by their self-interests in designing international institutions. Facing resource constraints, they are concerned with efficiency (Snidal 1996). Thus critical questions present themselves: do states have interests in monitoring and how do they pursue cost-effective monitoring arrangements?

5 For information provision by institutions at various aggregate levels, see Ostrom (1990), McKean (1992), Haas, Keohane, and Levy (1993), and Ostrom and Keohane (1994). For a cautious view on transferring propositions across levels of analysis, see Young (1994). 1. Organizational forms of information systems Availability of victims as low-cost monitors Yes Monitoring by Yes victims and states No Monitoring by treaty organizations Interest alignment between victims and states Monitoring by No Monitoring by victims and NGOs NGOs Interest alignment between victims of noncompliance and their states States are the primary decision-makers in establishing and reforming international institutions.
