Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


This paper presents a discussion of the need for and the possible forms of the North American Community. It begins with a discussion of the value of such an organization in terms of the existing relationship among the North American countries. The second section discusses the goals of the Community. The paper concludes with an analysis of two possible forms for the organization and rejects a common market for economic, political, and legal reasons. Instead, the paper offers the idea of cooperative organization, one which stresses equality and unanimity, as the most appropriate form for the North American Community.
