Missions, Mechanisms and Modalities of Fledgling Cooperative Regimes in the Pacific

Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


Cooperation often emerges when actors endeavour to mitigate or eliminate difficulties by acting together.1 However, the way in which they act differs tremendously even when they intend to act together to resolve conflicts of interest. In the West European context, for instance, Flora Lewis contrasts the Anglo-Saxon tradition of establishing precedents with the Napoleonic codification.2 Plunging out of the European Exchange-Rate Mechanism immediately after some tremor took place when many French and Danes showed hesitancy in ratifying the Maastricht Treaty were the British; those joining the move toward an eventual European Monetary Union included the French. The Group of Seven may be close to Anglo-Saxon practice while the Maastricht Treaty may be closer to the Napoleonic.
