About this product
- DescriptionAs the sole superpower, the temptation for the United States to act unilaterally is strong. Yet, what strategy is the U.S. pursuing in a region where cooperation is necessary to achieve policy goals? Applying theories of international cooperation, this study analyzes a complicated test case for American foreign policy. The oil resources in the Caspian region are relevant for the U.S. objective of securing the uninterrupted flow to world markets but engagement in this region has effects on Russian security interests and relations to Iran. Violent ethnic conflicts further threaten stability in the area. Cooperation or unilateralism is thus the key question for the U.S. As unilateral action is likely to provoke massive conflicts, cooperative behavior need t necessarily be more successful.
