Can commonalities in political culture and identity drive states closer together in the long run and result in the formation of natural alliances? This dissertation discusses the possibility that states which share a common constructed identity can better coordinate their international agendas. In particular, it applies this natural alliance theory to the trans-Atlantic community and discusses the implications of a common constructed identity for the future of the partnership.
