MSFS-666 Foreign Policy Making in Developing Nations
Fall for 2005-2006
This course is aimed at four objectives: (1) to give students a broad understanding of the foreign policy process in developing nations in the major developing areas, dealing specifically with each area both as a region, and with a closer examination of the foreign policy – outcomes and process – of several of the major states; (2) to present for criticism and discussion some of the major theoretical approaches to the analysis and comparison of foreign policy and the processes by which it is made; (3) to allow students to deepen their expertise in the region of their interest through the research and presentation of a foreign policy study of a state in this region; and (4) to sharpen students' analytic skills through creation of a common research design so that the students' research will fit together into a collaborative framework. This will facilitate both a specific understanding of the foreign policy in individual nations as well as an ability to make comparisons between states and generalizations about the topic as a whole.
