This course is an introduction to theories of foreign policy analysis and a survey of the foreign policies of major states. The first part of the course examines alternative theoretical approaches to how states formulate and implement their foreign policies. These conceptual models are then applied to a series of seminal events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis. The second part of the course examines the foreign policy trajectories of a number of important international actors and explores critical cases through simulations.
