MEDEIROS, Sabrina Evangelista. Models of international reputation and foreign policy paradigms. Contexto int. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.2, pp. 435-453. ISSN 0102-8529. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-85292011000200007.
International reputation is a feature of international law whose value is given by other actors assigning a positive or negative rating, connected to a state's willingness and capacity to comply with its commitments - often also termed reliability. Thus, the imperatives of a country's foreign policy are the determinants of its being received by the international community with varying degrees of trust. This article establishes a typology of reputation models based on both cooperative and dominance paradigms of the reputation states enjoy in the competitive international environment.
