Scholars often address the process of enlargement as one-sided argument. This
work provides a general theory of organizational expansion by including
strategies and actions of both, applicant states and members of international
organizations. It is argued that dependent on the domestic characteristics of
states an organization strategically implement a set of conditions to avoid the
application and admission of states, which are either not able to conform with the
rules or not willing to pay the costs of membership. This process incorporates
two stages. I test this theory by utilizing a Heckman-Probit-Selection Model,
which accounts for this two-stage procedure. The results confirm that conditions
are important to avoid costs in the process of expansion.
