Towards Behavioral International Law and Economics? Comment on Kenneth Abbott

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract In his contribution to this issue, Kenneth Abbott discusses the question of which social science paradigm should be used to analyze international law (IL) and proposes to enrich rational choice institutionalism with elements of constructivism.
This presupposes the usefulness of social science for the doctrinal work of lawyers; something well accepted in the United States, but still debated in Europe. This comment starts one step ahead and asks if and where social science may enter legal scholarship in order to clarify and offer a framework for discussion. It then proceeds to the question of enriching rational choice approaches to international law.
