India-Pakistan Relations: Legalization and Agreement Design

PDF · Sandeep Gopalan · Aug-16-2012 · 40 VAND. J. TRANSNAT'L L. 687 (2007)

This Article examines agreements between India and Pakistan to determine if there are design features that played a part in their success or failure. The analysis draws on insights from scholarship at the intersection of international relations theory and international law. The Article attempts to 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 norm strengthening, and that legalizing agreements between the two states can create compliance constituencies that act as constraining influences on governments.
