The Practice of Coercive Diplomacy in the Post-9/11 PeriodThe model of coercive diplomacy has been used as a framework for analyzing various cases of confrontation between two or more states. Coercive diplomacy is the use by a state of the threat of force to achieve its demands. Formulated by Alexander L. George, this model has been applied on a diverse group of case studies, such as the initial stages of the Vietnam conflict, the Laos conflict, as well as the Cuban missile crisis. This dissertation studies four cases from the post-9/11 period and analyzes them through the components of coercive diplomacy. These cases are (a) Operation Parakram 2001-2002 India-Pakistan crisis, (b) U.S. coercion on the Taliban September-October 2001, (c) U.S. coercive diplomacy against Saddam's Iraq prior to the March 2003 invasion, and (d) Coercive diplomacy and the North Korean nuclear crisis, 2002-2006.
