This chapter focuses on treaties that serve to coordinate international behavior. In this model, the minimum participation level is not the equilibrium participation level but the threshold participation level. When this minimum is reached, it pays all remaining non-participating countries to want to participate. This theory is applied to the case study of ocean dumping of oil by tankers.
