Content

Cuba, Vietnam, Iran, Lebanon, Grenada, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq again, Syria, ISIL, Ukraine, and Russia. This course explores American foreign policy decision making since the Kennedy years. It examines theories of foreign policy decision making, where the roles of presidents, administrations, rationality and intentionality are interrogated critically as decisions are forged. Then, through studies of foreign policy, the seminars will focus thematically on aspects of U.S. relations since the sixties; this is the period which arguably provides the perspective in which American foreign policy decision making is made today. Bringing the course fully into the present, seminars will focus on current foreign policy decision dilemmas taken by the Obama administrations and the incoming president.
