Foreign Policy (Section 31)

The Section on Foreign Policy is the organization for those interested in multilevel approaches to the study of international relations. The Section emphasizes individual, role, organizational, bureaucratic, societal, and/or state as well as situational and system level variables in foreign policy analyses. Members of the Section employ a wide range of approaches, including historical, normative, rational, behavioral, liberal, institutional, psychological, and constructivist. Section members emphasize comparative as well as American studies of foreign policy. And the Section recognizes the contributions of practitioners as well as academics in a broad range of professions and disciplines, e.g., communications, economics, diplomacy, government, history, political science, public opinion polling, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.
