The dissertation focuses on a broader question of why countries cooperate on defense-related matters despite gaining asymmetric benefits. Utilizing a case study approach, the dissertation analyzes the Czech-U.S. missile defense cooperation after the United States withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense Treaty in 2002. The dissertation identifies factors that enable alliance cooperation between allies that have asymmetrical diplomatic, military, and economic capabilities.
