French Policy Toward NATO: Enhanced Selectivity, Vice Rapprochement

  • September 01, 1994
  • Dr William T Johnsen, Dr Thomas-Durell Young

The authors of this report explain how French policy toward NATO has changed since 1992. Importantly, they discuss how these changes have been effected. However, certain key elements of French external policy have not changed. In effect, therefore, the authors argue that while France may wish to cooperate with NATO, this does not imply that there will be a more cooperative French attitude toward the Alliance.
