From the Paper:

"In order to identify the major bases of conflicts as well as the major means that can be used to solve them, three cultures were chosen. The United States, Germany and Japan are very unlike each other, but each has aspects in common with its neighbors. The United States, for example, conducts its corporate life similarly to Canada. Germany can be said in many ways to be similar to the Netherlands and Scandinavia in its cultural background. Japan is somewhat representative of most of Asia. Therefore, using those three nations to investigate the best practices in conflict resolution may result in a less limited range of recommendations than, for instance, considering Spain and Venezuela, both of which share some aspects in common with each other, and even with the large Latino population of the United States which has, arguably, influenced American corporate culture at least to a small degree."
