MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the possible correlation between participation by emerging states in multinational military coalitions, and increased stability of those emerging states. Level of multinational military participation is regressed against three metrics of stability; level of democracy, occurrence of internal conflict, and occurrence of external conflict. Implications of correlations discovered are discussed with respect to policy relevance toward state building and reconstruction in Iraq.
