by ISD - Georgetown University
Westermeyer, William E. and Christopher C. Joyner
This case study examines negotiations for devising a regime to determine a policy of mineral exploitation among a large group of countries active in Antarctica, examining the relationship of cause and effect in multilateral negotiations. It allows students to make judgments about the process and progress of such negotiations, and to compare and contrast issue-oriented information within a context of diverse national perspectives.
