Abstract: It has been argued that international institutions with a formal dispute settlement mechanism can promote international cooperation effectively. Under what conditions, then, do international institutions adopt this institutional design? Although previous studies on this research question have analyzed the effects of several conditions/ variables and commonly employed regression analysis methods, they have reached different conclusions. The lack of consensus could be caused by their implicit assumption (accompanying their choice of method) that conditions have effects that are independent from each other. To examine this inference, the present paper conducts an analysis 1) employing the same conditions/variables as the previous studies, 2) using the dataset of one of the previous studies, but 3) employing the qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) method, which is more appropriate than regression analysis methods for analyzing conjunctural effects. The present paper has important implications for the endogeneity problem in research on international institutions.
