This project uses nine key parameters analyzes 26 transnational environmental treaties that deal with public goods. The null hypothesis states that the more parameters these treaties have the more successful they will be. The second parameter, based off game theory, states that the more parameters the treaties have, the less successful they will be. Correlations of the number and kinds of attributes in treaties against their success will be used to evaluate the alternative hypotheses. In addition to this quantitative analysis of the presence of key parameters and their success, the proposed project will conduct an in-depth review of three cases to determine how the historical and political context influenced their success.
