Case 169 - Diplomacy During the Persian Gulf War
by ISD - Georgetown University
Goodman, Allan E. [case] and Sandra Clemens Bogart [teaching notes]
This case study examines the negotiations undertaken from August 2, 1990, when Iraq invaded Kuwait, to February 25, 1991, when Radio Baghdad announced that Iraqi armed forces would withdraw to the positions they held prior to August 1, 1990. The study transforms the classroom into a policy planning council, whose members ask a series of questions that involve everyone in the simulated role of decision-maker.
