Negotiations


Nations have become economically and politically (1) close integrated to each other. This integration raises a series of issues concerning their relationship that need to be negotiated. However, since interests may be very diverse, these negotiations can be difficult and require (2) exhaustive negotiations. Trade, for example, has been a subject discussed for a long time, but the negotiation of fairer terms for the international trade is far from any agreement. Likewise, the formation and consolidation of economic and political blocs may require permanent negotiations in order to (3) adjust the different interests of each nation to each other.

Reaching an agreement is thus not an easy task because each nation' interests may be very distinct from (4) each other. In addition, each country may try to obtain the most advantageous terms during negotiations (5) hindering any agreement. Depending on the issue being discussed, developing countries and developed ones may have such different views that reaching an agreement immediately becomes almost impossible. An agreement in these cases is the result of several (6) negotiation rounds in which countries bargain as much as possible in order to obtain the most favorable conditions for themselves.

(7) Bargain power is, in reality, the hallmark of every negotiation. (8) Whenever interests oppose fiercely countries to each other, most (9) economic and political powerful nations will try to impose their views on other countries. Furthermore, as the interests of powerful nations (10) are often coincident, they are (11) many times successful in negotiating agreements that benefit them more than other countries. Diplomats from less powerful countries have thus the challenge of avoiding these unfair negotiations to prosper.

The emergence of some borderless issues, such as (12) the global warming, (13) is likely to change the manner by which negotiations will be carried out (14) from now onwards. These issues will (15) have effects on the relative (7) bargain power of nations because reaching an agreement is now more important than obtaining favorable terms. (16) Instead of opposing nations to each other, these issues may unite nations so that they may face more effectively problems that are not restricted to any specific geographical region.

Diplomacy will be a key aspect in these negotiations (17) around global problems. Although differences are likely to remain, the possibility of (18) consent is greater because conflicting views may, in reality, (19) mean a risk for (20) the whole mankind. These negotiations will therefore be an excellent opportunity to develop countries' diplomacy and play more decisive roles. If they are able to work with other countries, that share (21) the same interests and views, they may be able to negotiate advantageous conditions, unlike (22) in the past.
