Abstract
German-American relations in the Third World constitute a vital concern to the entire international community and represent a particularly important subject for American policymakers at this time. Over the past three decades, the FPG has developed into one of the most important and stable allies of the United States. However, during the same period the FRG, once little more than a protectorate of the US, has become a medium-sized power, showing great economic strength and growing independence in pursuit of its national interest. Though the FRG's interests continue to strongly link it to the Western alliance, its increased economic strength, growing independence in international relations, and a more complex international environment makes differences of opinion between Germany and America more likely. Today German- American relations and foreign policy toward the Third World are complementary. However, there are differences and potential conflicts. This study examines the Third World policies of the FPG and the US in an attempt to determine whether or not they are likely to be a cause of conflict or cooperation in future German-American relations.
