Example text

Then, I emphasize the role played by opponents of changes to IGO rules. One of the most important arguments of this book is that the way in which the literature has often portrayed actors simply accepting norms and internalizing them without a fight or, alternatively, withstanding norms without taking any actions to meet demands is not accurate. Additionally, I argue that those actors who are promoting the norms and those opposing them negotiate with each other and eventually reach normative bargains that shape such rules.

Promote additional norms together with original one 6. Promote additional actions beyond those for which pressures are exerted “withstanding” them (which implies that the actor does not take any actions to reduce the normative pressure and does not accept any of the proposed changes) are not captured in the table. The challenging strategy (the main one discussed in the norms literature) implies a rejection of the “appropriateness” of the norm or of the ability to apply it in that particular instance.

When one component is high (H) and the other is moderate (M), the pressure is high (H). When one component is high (H) and the other is low (L), the pressure is moderate (M). I consider cases in which both components are moderate (M) as cases of moderate pressures (M). Those cases in which one component is moderate (M) and the other is low (L) are of low pressures (L). Lastly, when both the strength of the norm and the departure from its prescriptions are low (L), the pressures are very low (VL).
