Krasner's slim definition of regimes excludes practices such as justification and behavioral adaptation from the concept proper, making them matters of empirical inquiry. As such, this definition comes closer to the definition of the term in international law, and it clearly becomes instrumental in splitting the more general question of how to achieve governance in a stateless society into a series of more specific questions. 32 Olav Schram Stokke The Main Puzzles of Regime Analysis Three major themes can be identified in regime literature to date, although emphasis on any one theme has shifted over time.
23 We have seen that there is considerable heterogeneity among theorists of international regimes and that the rationalist core of this tradition is a contended one. Part of this contention is related to epistemology, as evidenced in the sociological critique of the positivist commitments of 43 Regimes as Governance Systems mainstream regime analysis, including its solipsistic conception of agency. Even some regime scholars who concur epistemologically with the rationalists, however, point to a broader and somewhat different set of causal processes than intentional adaptation to changing cost-benefit situations.
Indeed, although institutional transformation is often a sine qua non for the continued political relevance of international regimes, it is nevertheless an aspect of regime maintenance that so far has been given comparatively little systematic attention in the literature. 8 A second major theme in regime analysis is the formation of international institutions. Authors try to account for the success or failure of various efforts to create new regimes in the international domain, 42 Regimes as Governance Systems focusing on different types of factors.
