Women in Foreign Policy

Author: Nancy E. McGlen
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9780429678103
Release Date: 2018-12-19
Genre: Political Science

Originally published in 1993, this title provides a unique insight into the challenges faced by the women who shaped United States foreign policy at the time. The authors examine the "Gender Gap" in beliefs between men and women in the State and Defense departments. Highlighted by interviews with ten leading women in the field – including Jeane Kirkpatrick and Rozanne Ridgway, then the two highest ranking women in foreign policy – the book provides an intimate glimpse into the making of foreign policy during the Reagan administration. Based on 79 interviews with women and men senior executives in the departments of State and Defense, this title poses a number of key questions. Who are the women in the State and Defense Departments, and how do their background and lifestyle choices compare with those of their male colleagues? What problems do they confront in an attempt to influence policy in the international arena? Do the women on the inside make a difference in how policy is formulated or how the departments are managed? Are women by nature more peaceful than men? Will they alter the face of foreign policy? Or are they more likely to hold the same views as men? This title provided an important insight into these questions, and would have been provocative reading at the time of publication.

Die im dritten Abschnitt des Bandes behandelten Theorien richten ihren Fokus auf psychologische und kognitive Erklärungsfaktoren auf der Ebene individueller außenpolitischer Entscheidungsträger. Der Band gibt damit den aktuellen Stand der Theorieentwicklung in der Disziplin der Außenpolitikforschung wieder.

Understanding Conflict and Violence

Author: Tim Jacoby
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134224241
Release Date: 2007-09-12
Genre: Political Science

This book examines and interprets a wide range of approaches to the causes of violence and conflict. The causes of violence and conflict are often left untheorized, or they are discussed as an existent problem assumed to be an inevitable part of human interaction. Adopting an accessible approach, this volume presents readers with a clear understanding of the causes of violence and conflict by highlighting their evolutionary roots and illustrating them with in-depth case studies and examples. Tim Jacoby addresses the fragmented nature of the literature on conflict theory by drawing upon a wide range of disciplinary traditions, seeking to reflect the fact that international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology all share a long-standing interest in the study of conflict and violence and that common concerns make interdisciplinary stimulating and productive. Understanding Conflict & Violence will be of interest to students and scholars across the disciplines of international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology.

Release Date: 2004
Genre: International crimes

Das Verhaltnis von Recht und Politik in den internationalen Beziehungen wird durch die Existenz des neuen Internationalen Strafgerichtshofs grundlegend verandert. Das bedeutet fur die Staaten einen Souveranitatsverzicht, zu dem die USA aber nicht bereit sind. In dieser ersten geschlossenen Darstellung der inneramerikanischen Auseinandersetzungen um den ICC, gelingt es der Autorin, die Grunde fur den amerikanischen Widerstand zu identifizieren. Fur den ICC bedeutet das amerikanische Fernbleiben eine erhebliche Schwachung, die seinen Beitrag fur eine weltfriedensordnung empfindlich mindern kann.
