After all, structures ‘shape and shove’ and do not fully determine state action. States are even free to disregard the constrained balancing incentives altogether. However, if they choose to do so they will have to confront costs later on. To become dependent on a hegemon or to abandon beneficial institutions will come at a price, as neorealism and historical institutionalism suggest. As these costs accumulate over time, they will further reinforce pressures on states to adjust to the international incentive structure.
Neorealism clearly spells out one important aspect of a state’s international environment. A framework for foreign policy analysis based on neorealism would posit, for instance, that an ideal-type state would react Structure and Policy: A Framework for Analysis 35 to imbalances of power by attempting to counter them. Yet actual states may deviate from this (structurally) optimal course of action and even choose not to react to the imbalance at all. In this case the framework can be used to spell out the adverse repercussions that result from the decision to ignore structural incentives.
Structure and Policy: A Framework for Analysis 41 Is a model whose representation of the international incentive structure produces such confusing and apparently indeterminate results therefore useless? I would argue that it is not, for at least two reasons. First, it provides us with a tool to detect the major concerns of states that result from the international system. The implication is that decision-makers will face the same difficulties in decision situations as we do when pondering the different options.
