Institutional rules--procedural, structural, and normative--are held to play very important roles in affecting recommendations and results. Their effect is widely known in family politics, yet their function in foreign politics continues to be rather underdeveloped. during this shut exam of ways institutional ideas have affected the relative impact and tool of individuals of the association of yankee States, Shaw demonstrates the significance of ideas the place they can be thought of to be least powerful: shaping the habit of a hegemon, the us. 4 elements are thought of vital in studying the results of institutional ideas: the extent of consensus between Latin American participants, the level of possibility to nearby balance, the quantity of assets had to handle a topic, and the reliance on norms, together with non-intervention and kingdom sovereignty. Tracing their interplay, Shaw unearths that the foundations affected country and organizational judgements within the hugely germane zone of clash answer. through demonstrating the significance of organizational ideas the place they could be anticipated to be least potent, this is often a massive contribution to the research of diplomacy.

Proposals and use their majority of votes to defeat them. This perspective also emphasizes a point that is often overlooked when examining Latin America, that is that this region is not homogenous. Members have a wide variety of interests that they pursue within the context of the OAS. Member relations are far more complex than a simple division of the United States versus the rest. Hypothesis 3 is based on the constructivist literature that norms do affect state behavior and that the United States will have less influence if it tries to take action that violates regional principles.

The focus of hegemonic stability theory is on the effectiveness of regimes and is closely linked to Mancur Olson’s theory of collective action (1965). Free rider problems result in the need for a dominant actor to establish a regime in order for states to cooperate. The hegemon imposes its norms on the system and all institutions conform to the hegemon’s preferences. When power becomes more equally distributed among members, these regimes decline. It may be that hegemons are essential in the creation of some regimes and successfully maintain their regimes by setting norms of behavior in the system.

Proposals that are put forth in the OAS are carefully phrased to uphold the principles of the Inter-American System. These principles thus constrain the actions of all members. Although many different actions can be framed so as to support these principles, there are certain actions that are not acceptable to members that they will resist strongly. This leads to the next hypothesis: 3. Any proposal or unilateral action by the United States (or other member state) that does not clearly uphold the principles of the 34 / organization of american states organization will have less support than a proposal that is based on principled action, and will face strong opposition in the Council/ Meeting of Foreign Ministers.
