Abstract:

The document presents a survey of NATO coordination of training programs for allied military forces and its implications about collaboration among allies in peacetime. Three types of training are analyzed. NATOs experience in the training function tends to confirm the utilitarian concept of a nations behavior in alliances. Where national self-interest is served-- because of scarcity of an essential commodity or strategic necessity-- cooperation is willingly engaged in. Where cooperation involves a sacrifice for the common welfare, it is declined.
