The author s argument, in which domestic constraints provided by nongovernmental veto players help states gain their preferred outcome, is an elegant explanation that will be useful in examining a wide range of international negotiations. Elizabeth R. DeSombre, author of Global Environmental Institutions"

From the Back Cover

During international bargaining, who gets the better deal, and why, is one of the questions at the heart of the study of international cooperation. In Who Gets What? Áslaug Ásgeirsdóttir analyzes seven agreements signed throughout a twenty-year span between Iceland and Norway to allocate shared fish stocks. While the Law of the Sea regime provides specific solution concepts for negotiators, it does not dictate the final outcome. Looking at the actual negotiation process and the political and economic constraints negotiators operate under, Ásgeirsdóttir examines how domestic interest groups can directly influence the negotiating process, and thus affect international agreements over scarce resources. Who Gets What? demonstrates empirically that a nation with more domestic constraints on its negotiators gets a better deal.

The author's argument, in which domestic constraints provided by nongovernmental veto players help states gain their preferred outcome, is an elegant explanation that will be useful in examining a wide range of international negotiations." -- Elizabeth R. DeSombre, author of Global Environmental Institutions

Format: Hardcover
Overall, I found the book to provide a compelling explanation why some countries do better than others in international agreements. Initially, I was attracted to the book because the subject of fish stocks migrating between the waters of multiple countries seemed like an intriguing way to get at international relations. With the entire stock potentially imperiled in the waters of either nation, there is a need for some negotiation. Since the author is actually willing to make a judgement about which side was advantaged and to defend that judgement, readers can then start to think about the factors that can lead to one side being advantaged in negotiations. The author's explanation, which in part shows how negotiators can be advantaged by demonstrating that they are plausibly constrained by entities like interest groups, is supported by interesting stories, interview accounts, and a straightforward presentation of quantitative information.
