the hereafter

you know what this makes me think of? in introduction to transnational law, when we were discussing why states sign international treaties if they do not regard it as binding and are merely putting down in lip service what they think would be in their best interests to do anyway- I think Michael, to push back, said that governments do regard treaties as binding and to that end use it as a tactic to precommit their successors for fear that they’ll try to backtrack on what was previously done and promised.

question is: do other people have to negotiate with themselves as if they are rogue states?
