Case 119 - Negotiations on the French Withdrawal from NATO
Harrison, Michael M. and Mark G. McDonough
This case study describes the negotiations accompanying the process of France’s withdrawal from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s integrated military system, including the expulsion of NATO units from French soil. It focuses on negotiations among allies who retain common political security interests, despite some strong differences concerning principles of national and Western defense. As such, the case is particularly useful for courses on international negotiation and bargaining, and for courses involving alliance organizations and Western security affairs.
