A Public Choice Analysis of International Cooperation

This chapter discusses the result of a public choice analysis of international cooperation. It explains that public choice analysis yields predictions with reference to the interests of those who participate in democratic processes and compares it with normative analysis. The result of public choice analysis identifies the possible reasons for underfinancing international cooperation and that voter respondents in the analysis are preoccupied with the more immediate benefits of domestic programs which are less costly when supported by intergovernmental grants. This chapter concludes that policy must take into account individuals' perceptions and responses.

Keywords:   international cooperation, public choice analysis, normative analysis, underfinancing, intergovernmental grants, voters
