Legitimacy in International Society addresses collective legitimization of emergent norms at international meetings and its effect on state behaviour. Drawing mainly on constructivist approaches in International Relations and social psychology, Isao Miyaoka discusses the international and domestic sources of legitimacy and the basic conditions under which collective legitimization matters for norm adoption. He also outlines three causal mechanisms of social influence and the conditions under which each mechanism is likely to operate. Three case studies examine Japan's responses to wildlife preservation norms against high seas driftnet fishing, scientific whaling and international trade in African elephant ivory. Isao Miyaoka finds that the consent given to an emerging norm by more than one third of the states in international society is likely to have an impact on state behaviour, even without material coercion, self interest or moral obligation, due to social pressure or political obligation.
