This paper discusses the article "Turning Points in International Organization," by Daniel Druckman. The writer explains the three types of turning points that Druckman identifies as instrumental to international organization--procedural, substantive, and external--and describes how Druckman gives examples to back the claims that he makes. The writer also describes Druckman's conclusions about security negotiations and environmental and trade negotiations, with external turning points being more influential on the former and substantive turning points affecting the latter. The paper concludes that because trade, and especially environmental issues affect the world as a whole, Druckman's scholarship regarding turning points will positively affect the future of international negotiations if extreme globalization due to communications technology is taken into account.

From the Paper:

"While this application of turning points is an interesting contributor to the continuing discussion of international relations negotiations, Druckman suggests it has significant implications for one's understanding of international negotiation. While security issues were most associated with external turning points, suggesting an adversarial type of negotiation environment, environmental and trade negotiations were associated with internal, or substantive and procedural, turning points. This suggests a collaborative environment. Thus, Druckman suggests that these turning points allow others to view the differing attitudes with which governments view different types of negotiations (Druckman 522-523)."
