Upon entering an alliance, states sign a treaty, in essence a contractual agreement that creates rights and obligations and stipulates their commitments and the casus foederis and the circumstances under which these commitments would be activated. What is remarkable about many alliance treaties is that their commitments are couched in a fairly vague, general and non-specific way. This may be advantageous when it permits a broader interpretation of defence and security interests, but it may also prove to be a distinct liability when it encourages different perceptions, expectations and interpretation of the nature of commitments.
