Case 145 - The Suez Crisis, 1956
by ISD - Georgetown University
Fry, Michael G.
Egyptian President Gamal Abd al-Nasser precipitated an international crisis when, on July 26, 1956, he announced his decision to nationalize the Suez Canal. However, through the implementation of a cease-fire by Israel, Britain, and France, the crisis ended on November 7 of that year. This case study is well-suited for courses on bargaining and negotiating theory, or any class that explores the historical approach to the study of international relations.
