The author studies politically binding international agreements and asks whether or not international law supports a valid option between legally binding and non-legal agreements. How should one distinguish a legally binding agreement from a non-legal one? What are the material differences? The author's theoretical discussions are applied to five multilateral export control regimes-the Zangger Committee; The Nuclear Suppliers Group; the Australia Group; the Missile Technology Supplies group; and the Wassenaar Arrangement. The author works in the disarmament and arms control section of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
