ALLEE AND PAUL K. HUTH respect for the rule of law are core beliefs that political elites should be expected to draw upon when they become engaged in international disputes and bargaining with international adversaries. Democratic Norms Hypotheses on Settlement Agreements Two hypotheses can be developed regarding the relationship between domestic political norms and the willingness to reach agreements to settle territorial disputes. DN1: Negotiated settlement agreements over disputed territory are more likely between states that share strong democratic norms as opposed to states that have weak democratic norms.

In other subfields, however, the situation is different. This is especially the case in international political economy, an area that has eschewed any search for correlational patterns, focusing instead, with almost clockwork regularity every O 34 DAVID SYLVAN few years, on general claims about certain ubiquitous phenomena: regimes, institutions, epistemic communities, hegemonic stability, the role of ideas and norms, and so forth. Obviously, research about these phenomena has helped to shed light on particular situations; just as obviously, though, this kind of focus makes it difficult to study broad patterns of correlations, which may account for the fact that when a new concept comes into vogue, older research is often reinterpreted terminologically rather than integrated theoretically.

The reasoning is that from a domestic political perspective, governments are likely to be sensitive to the domestic political risks of what would seem like a major reversal of policy by suddenly reaching a settlement after repeated stalemates. Instead, it would seem advantageous to manage the domestic controversy of reaching a settlement agreement by moving more slowly through a sequence of negotiations, in which limited progress provides an opportunity to the government to prepare domestic audiences for more substantial concessions in a final agreement.
