According to the BOT alliance theory, states join an alliance in order to cope with the most dangerous threats, not invariably the most powerful state (Walt 1987).  106). The fundamental difference between the BOP alliance theory and the BOT alliance theory is that the latter claims that the biggest power does not necessarily represent the biggest threat.  21–26). Schweller proposes the BOI alliance theory. According to the BOI alliance theory, the principal motivation for states to enter into an alliance is to optimise their interests (Schweller 1994).

The first factor is utility. Utility indicates the degree of usefulness of a potential ally to a state in helping ease its anxiety which is also shared by this potential ally. The second factor is reliability. States care about whether this potential ally is reliable to cooperate with. Utility and reliability are two main elements in influencing alliance formation accordingly. They also remain crucial in influencing alliance persistence. Only when a state remains convinced that its allies still possess desirable utility and reliability can it be willing to continue to stay in an alliance.
