This thesis examines the theoretical insights on the process of interstate bargaining offered by Thomas Schelling and Robert Jervis. Both authors offer competing models for framing the problem of conveying intent in interstate bargaining frameworks. Can states operationalize coercive and compellant bargaining frameworks as described by Thomas Schelling? Or, suggested by Jervis, is the process of interstate communications structurally flawed by perception and misperception? This thesis examines a case study involving Iran's nuclear program and how it is or is not influenced by Israel and the United States, and identifies which theoretical framework, if any, best explains a nation's intent in the international arena.
