The Design of International Agreements, by Andrew T. Guzman, University of California, Berkeley – School of Law (Boalt Hall) [Legal Theory Blog]:

  • From the abstract – “This Article explains why rational states sometimes prefer to design their agreements in such a way as to make them less credible and, therefore, more easily violated. In contrast to domestic law, where contractual violations are sanctioned through zero-sum payments from the breaching party to the breached-against party, sanctions for violations of international agreements are not zero-sum.”
