Abstract

This Article introduces the concept of nudge — low cost behaviorally informed modes of regulation that influence peoples’ decisions without limiting their choice set — into the behavioural analysis of international law. The Article sketches out the pathways through which nudges might influence the behavior of countries, and highlights the normative implications associated with utilizing these regulatory tools in the international arena. That done, the article presents numerous case studies that demonstrate how nudges such as defaults, goals, and rankings are integrated into the international legal terrain.

Keywords: international law, behavioral economics, nudge, goals, deadlines, ranking, default effect
