3 As Harold Koh has observed, the reason why nations obey international law “remains among the most perplexing questions in international relations.” Koh, Harold Hongju, Why Do Nations Obey International Law?, 106Yale L.J.2599, 2599 (1997). Koh’s essay offers his own views and provides a comprehensive overview of the vast literature related to this question. A more recent survey of the literature appears in Andrew Guzman, How International Law Works (2008), in which the author also offers his own ideas about how international law influences state behavior.
