Die um zwei Kapitel erweiterte Neuauflage diskutiert 12 Theorien der Außenpolitikforschung, die in drei Abschnitte untergliedert sind. Der erste Teil widmet sich den Großtheorien der Internationalen Beziehungen und arbeitet heraus, in welcher Art und Weise diese für die Analyse von Außenpolitik fruchtbar gemacht werden können. Der zweite Block diskutiert Erklärungsansätze, die außenpolitische Entscheidungen auf innenpolitische Einflüsse und Zwänge zurückführen. 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.

Genre: Political Science

The Art of Policymaking: Tools, Techniques and Processes in the Modern Executive Branch, Second Edition is a practical introduction to the specific tools, techniques, and processes used to create policy in the executive branch of the U.S. government. George E. Shambaugh, IV and Paul Weinstein, Jr. explain how government officials craft policy, manage the policymaking process, and communicate those policies to stakeholders and the public at large. The authors draw on both their academic and government experience to provide real-world advice on writing memos, preparing polling questions, and navigating the clearance process. An abundance of case studies show how actual policies are developed and how and why policies and processes differ across administrations. Practice scenarios allow students to apply the tools and techniques they have learned by working through both domestic and foreign policy situations.

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.

ISBN: UOM:39015061157312
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.
