Abstract
    International environmental agreements aim at orienting national policies towards the promotion of more sustainable behaviors by national actors. However, international agreements can affect national policies only if states are willing and capable of incorporating international obligations into their national legislations (enactment) and ensuring their application (or execution) and enforcement. The article analyzes the domestic implementation of international fisheries agreements along their enactment, execution, and enforcement in China and Senegal. The comparison reveals the political complexity that accompanies national fisheries policy reforms promoted by international agreements in developing countries.
