International Commitments In An Era Of Unilateral Presidential Power: A Comparison Of The Treaties And Executive Agreements Made By The Administrations Of George W. Bush And Theodore Roosevelt, Brandon C. Prins, Bryan W. Marshall

Benjamin F. Shambaugh Conferences

Paper prepared for the Shambaugh Conference, “Building Synergies Institutions and Cooperation in World Politics,” October 12-15, University of Iowa.

Abstract

Treaty-making involves the constitutional struggle for policy control. Both Congress and the presdient are defined as official actors in the making of international commitments, and both closely guard their constitutionally defined roles.

Prepared for presentation at the 2006 Shambaugh Conference, “Building Synergies: Institutions and Cooperation in World Politics,” October 12-14, 2006, University of Iowa.

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new database of facts related ...

Abstract

States often experience disagreements such as competing territorial claims and sometimes they attempt to address these differences by negotiating explicit, written settlements. Can these agreements help ensure a durable peace? I examine the effect of agreements that attempt to address differences after significant conflict has occurred, such as peace agreements, as well as agreements designed to manage ...
