Abstract:

This thesis examines the relationship between the benefits and the major objections expressed over burden sharing and international armaments cooperation. These concerns include 1 protectionism, 2 transfer of technology and 3 bureaucratic problems. An analysis of these factors will be conducted through a case study of the Fighter Support Experimental FSX project. It will be conducted so as to determine the validity of these benefits and objections. The objective of this thesis is to examine both the benefits of burden sharing, and the objections raised concerning armaments cooperation in relation to the FSX project. The validity of the objections to the FSX agreement will be analyzed in addition to how they relate to future projects.
