Abstract
Why do regional organizations adopt a set of norms, and what explains their variation? How have these commitments evolved over time and space? Although individual studies have started to identify specific norms in IOs, we have only very little systematic knowledge about the normative purposes of international organizations and how these evolve over the life cycle of an organization. This article uses a new dataset on regional organizations to answer the why and what for questions state above. The CROP Normative Purposes Dataset entails information on over 20 norms over a time period of 70 years that international organizations can adopt. Methodologically, we use exploratory first and second order factor analysis to identify normative dimensions in the data. Three dimensions can be distilled: a Liberal, a Westphalian, and a Social Equality dimension. The article explains the existence of these dimensions.
