Abstract: 
In the past decades, we are witnessing a rapid growth of defense cooperation agreements
(DCAs) in contrast to the decreasing amount of newly formed alliances. I examine the
formation of DCAs in the lens of contextual change and costly signals. In terms of contextual
change, I construct the environment of the strategic interaction by specifying both structural
and institutional context. Within these preceding contexts, I contend that DCAs are the product
of two efforts by states. First, they are states’ adjustments toward unexpected contextual change,
e.g.: global and regional structural change, institutional bargaining, or the combination of both.
Second, they are states commitment to the existing international institutions as well as broader
regional and international order. In both cases, states attempt to reduce the uncertainty in the
international society. Accordingly, I conduct two case studies: the Quadrilateral Security
Strategy in the Indo-Pacific and the European Common Defense Policy. By conducting both
in-depth case studies and controlled comparisons, I conclude that given the rapid change of
security challenges, states opt to strengthen existing regimes rather than engaging outright
confrontations. Consolidation as such is achieved by signing DCAs to bolster the security and
defense networks.
