This paper discusses how Uruguay, a small South American nation has complex international relations, particularly with the United States. It looks at how, through economic and military treaties and alliances, Uruguay's position within the world order is assured, and thus Uruguay benefits. In particular, it examines how the international exchanges between the United States and Uruguay are beneficial to both nations and how both work with each other to maintain the current world order and use economic agreements to improve all aspects of international relations.

From the Paper:

"Uruguay finds itself in a position in which, to maintain its international power strategically, has to rely on treaties, other powers, and the world order. Within the elements of the international strategic equilibrium, Uruguay must fight to maintain its position within international society without actual fighting or with its own capabilities to exert power. One objective is a favorable world order and this order is one which can be helped by the promotion of American values. The primary way to promote American values is through promotion of American trade values. For example, the administration of Jorge Batlle was allied with the United States in support of its Free-Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) (EIA 2/2 2005). This alliance in support of America's position was contrary to the Mercosur customs union which Uruguay is also a part of in favor of pro-American policies. "
