Alliances, Armed Conflict, and Cooperation: Theoretical Approaches and Empirical Evidence

Abstract: Alliances are subject to many scholarly inquiries in international relations and peace research because they are major instruments of foreign and security policies. Since the early work on alliances produced by the Correlates of War (COW) project, there have been significant advances in conceptual, theoretical, and empirical alliance research. New typologies and data permit us to differentiate more thoroughly among a variety of alliance objectives and functions. Furthermore, there has been new theoretical and … Show more

“…One is the Correlates of War (COW) Formal Interstate Alliance Data Set (Gibler & Sarkees 2004). This is perhaps better known than the second source: the Alliance Treaty Obligations and Provisions (ATOP) project (Leeds 2005; Sprecher & Krause 2006). However, whereas COW provides data only up to 2000, ATOP alliance data are available to 2003.…”

Discussions in the literature can generally be understood as concerning two questions: how alliances come to existence and how they perform.…”

“…The two main areas of focus concern the formation of alliances and the impact of alliances on war (do alliances make war more or less likely?). This literature has already been expertly sum marized elsewhere (Sprecher and Krause 2006;Weitsman 2010), so the presentation be low must be considered as a general roadmap and needs to be completed with more gran ular overviews. However, this is a deliberate choice that follows from our preference for concentrating on the evolution of contemporary alliances and coalitions in Sections 44.3 and 44.4 of this chapter.…”
