Theoretical and empirical approaches to exploring the relationship between domestic politics and international relations.
• Students should understand how to define the appropriate unit of analysis: When is it appropriate to study foreign policy outcomes rather than international political outcomes? What does that mean for the independent variables we use to explain these outcomes? • Students should be able to analyze what is doing the work in studies of foreign policy and/or international politics (e.g., is it individuals, structure, or some combination of both?). • Students should be familiar with the major literatures and debates in the field of foreign policy decision-making. • Students should understand how foreign policy decision-making relates to other strands of theoretical and empirical research in international relations (such as realism, liberalism, and constructivism). • Students should be able to think about how foreign policy decision-making research would proceed empirically, and should be able to apply their knowledge to a foreign policy problem.
