What Is One Way That Treaties And Executive Agreements Differ

88 Janet M. Box-Steffensmeier & Bradford S. Jones, Event History Modeling: A Guide for Social Scientists 2 (2004) (describes the different terminology to which survival models refer). To distinguish between agreements subsequently approved by Congress and other types of executive agreements, the data continues to rely on Hathaway`s collection of authorization laws. Hathaway compiled the most comprehensive list of laws of Congress between 1980 and 2000 that can reasonably be interpreted as authorizing earlier agreements between Congress and the executive branch. This list includes nine legal acts. Footnote 73 I manually inspect each of these measures and then review in the FIT data the executive agreements that can reasonably be interpreted as approved under either Statute. Footnote 74 This approach identifies fifty-two ex-post agreements between Congress and the executive branch of 5,443 agreements concluded between 1982 and 2000. Secondly, it should be noted that the concern about a violation of the proportional hypothesis of danger comes from the medical sciences, where it is very important that a drug has an opposite or possibly reverse effect on a subset of patients. However, in the social sciences, researchers are generally interested in the average effects of covariates on the entire sample. As Allison points out, even in cases where the proportionality hypothesis is violated, estimates can still be interpreted as average covariate effects. Fn. 128 Violations of the principle of proportionality therefore do not constitute a threat to the interpretability of coefficients for most social science studies such as this study.

Footnote 129 24 Hathaway, loc. cit., Note 1, 1256 (Look for agreements between Congress and the executive branch that were subsequently approved, and only a “small number” of these agreements). Today, the debate on interchangeability has resurfaced, albebebebe known in a different form. The contemporary focus is not on whether it is permissible to use the two instruments interchangeably, but on whether treaties and agreements between Congress and the executive can be used interchangeably as a political issue. Under the Obama administration, only twenty treaties were approved by the Senate, the lowest number of approvals during a presidential term since President Ford.Note 6 At the same time, the popularity of the congress-executive agreement seems unwavering, with several hundred international agreements concluded during the same period as the agreements between Congress and the executive branch. Footnote 7 Given this empirical reality, it has been argued that the Treaty does not serve much of a practical purpose today, with some commentators even going so far as to suggest that the Treaty should be abandoned altogether. Footnote 8 Similarly, Hathaway`s analysis is purely descriptive and incapable of empirically examining why contracts are more or less common in certain areas […].
