Internationalism and problem-solving theory hang together. If the problem-solving approach is invalid in principle, as some argue, so is internationalism. This book does not reflect an irrevocable commitment to the problemsolving approach to the study of international relations, but it does reflect an assumption to the effect that a demonstration of its weaknesses does not suffice to invalidate internationalism. The assumption made here is that general and structural theory is not inherently useless and that internationalism cannot be dismissed in this simple way.
According to the theory of internationalism, structural features like behaviour patterns and institutions can be trusted to create appropriate attitudes and perceptions, whereas attitudes and perceptions cannot be relied upon to inhibit connective action in an enduring way unless backed up by structures. 26 The Logic of Internationalism It should be emphasized that some of the criticism that has been levelled against the problem-solving approach to the study of international relations is beside the point when it is a matter of evaluating a political programme.
A main task of a theory of internationalism is to demonstrate that international institutions are likely to be effective in the sense that governments will generally abide by them even when this goes against what they consider 28 The Logic of Internationalism to be their vital interests. A further task is to show why it is reasonable to expect effective institutions to be set up in a system of states that are, and are presumed to want to remain, independent and hence intent on retaining control of matters they consider vital.
