India-Pakistan Relations: Legalization and Agreement Design
Gopalan, Sandeep (2007) India-Pakistan Relations: Legalization and Agreement Design. Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law, 40 (3). ISSN 0090-2594
This article examines agreements between India and Pakistan to determine if there are design features that played a role in their success or failure. I show that India and Pakistan share attributes that are particularly well suited for a positive correlation between increased legalization and compliance, that the law plays a role in strengthening norms, and that legalizing commitments can create compliance constituencies that act as constraining influences on governments.
