Do countries keep their promises to the international community?
When they sign treaties or learn about new expectations, do they
take them seriously and implement them? Since we already know
intuitively that not all countries do, the next question and the
topic of this book is: who complies? By considering a wide range of
different rules each precise enough to allow one to measure state
compliance and a variety of methods, we hope to answer this
question once and for all.
Including a systematic analysis of 8 different countries
selected for the variety of regime type, international engagement
and economic development they represent, the work caps a five-year
research program and represents the culmination of twenty years
worth of work in the disciplines of international relations and
international law on legalization and compliance. Stiles highlights
the importance of systematic study of compliance in order to move
further towards solving truly global issues, such as terrorism,
human trafficking, air pollution and collective goods provision.
With international laws generally designed to improve the human
condition and current levels of compliance inconsistent at best, it
is vital to gain a better understanding of who complies and
This detailed study will be of interest to students of Politics,
International Law and International Relations. "
