ESRC AQM Studentship: Strategic and Relational Event Models in
International Climate Treaty-Making
Existing statistical approaches ignore the strategic and relational
contexts in which specific agreements are made; they only consider a
government’s current choice, independent of how their own choice affects
future behaviour by others (strategic context) and what to learn from
historic ratifications (relational context). This PhD project hence
proposes to assess, both substantively and statistically, the relative
merits of two advanced quantitative methods: Strategic Estimation and
the Relational Event Model (REM) to investigate international
agreement-making to better understand the nature of government choice
