Emerging from international society, international law reflects the particular characteristics of this society, as well as the relationships among the actors in the system. This analysis advances our understanding of the influences of international norms and international institutions on international cooperation. Its contributors cast new light on the factors enhancing, or impeding, cooperation among states. The insights gained suggest ways for enhancing states' incentives to cooperate through the design of norms and institutions.
