Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the relationship between international law and State behaviour during international crises by first examining what current answers there are in existing literature to the question of where international law fits into the determination and implementation of foreign policy where the threat or use of force is a possibility. First, it looks at how existing empirical literature has dealt with the relationship between international law and State behaviour. It then explores new theoretical perspectives on international law and international relations which have not given rise to any major bodies of empirical literature on the relationship between international law and State behaviour. Finally, the chapter critically examines the core ideas of international law and/or international relations central to these newer theoretical approaches and the implications of these newer approaches for understanding the relationship between international law and State behaviour in general, and in relation to international crises in particular.

Keywords:empirical literature; force; foreign policy; international crises; international law; international relations; State behaviour; threat
