Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the issue of compliance with rulings of international adjudicative bodies. It first analyzes the meaning of compliance, why it matters, and the measurement of compliance. It then reviews the literature on judgment compliance. These include studies that explain judgment compliance by focusing on features of the court, or of the structure of the legal regime of which the court is part; studies highlighting factors having to do with the state, including its legal and political features; studies that highlight features of the dispute itself, such as subject matter and the type of problem it seeks to solve; and studies that view compliance not as a dependent but as an independent or intervening variable.

Keywords: judgment compliance, rulings, international adjudicative bodies
