Constructing Allied Cooperation

This chapter examines how countries build multilateral military coalitions. Diplomatic networks provide critical underpinnings for multilateral coalition-building efforts. States that are most interested in seeing a given coalition deploy will develop operational plans of how the mission should look and instrumentalize existing bilateral and multilateral connections to recruit fitting coalition contributors. The trust, information, and facility to construct issue linkages and side payments embedded in these networks help these states in their coalition-building endeavor. Moreover, these states ask common institutional contacts to serve as cooperation brokers and use institutional venues as coalition negotiation fora. In short, diplomatic embeddedness serves as a resource, a strategic capability that states use to bargain third parties into joining a coalition.

Keywords:   multilateral military coalitions, diplomatic networks, coalition building, states, coalition contributors, cooperation brokers, coalition negotiation, diplomatic embeddedness, side payments, issue linkages
