This chapter considers some of the insights offered by International Relations theorists—notably those working on regime theory and in the ‘English school’—which have been used to explain patterns of inter‐state cooperation and compliance with international regimes. In the process it assesses their applicability to the study of Anglo‐German relations during the Second World War. It examines how the concept of reciprocity operates in international relations, and explores the circumstances under which states comply with their obligations as members of the international community and signatories of agreements under international law.

Keywords: international relations; regime theory; ‘English school’; cooperation; compliance; international regimes; reciprocity; international law
