POLS 7014 - Foreign Policy Process

Foreign policy is a historically based, dynamic process with many individual actors, global causes and overlapping concepts. We will study the Presidency and Congress, the State Department and Intelligence Community, the Economic Bureaucracy. Public Opinion and the Media, and issues such as the theoretical bases of policy-making and the tension between national security and democracy. This course explores how each of these operates and contributes to the making of U.S. foreign policy.
