A theory of boilerplate in international agreements

CBG 1.03 Centre Building, LSE, Select a State:
Speaker: Professor Michael Waibel (University of Vienna)

‘Boilerplate’ terms are those that appear in a multitude of agreements – such as ‘entry into force’ terms copied directly from the United Nations Handbook on Final Clauses. We know little about such boilerplate in international law. However, literature in a different institutional setting, private law contracts, indicates that while boilerplate can make negotiations more efficient, it has a dark side: it may be imposed by more powerful parties to gain benefits; it can persist even as conditions change; and it can take on a life of its own and come to mean something different from what was intended by the drafters.
