International Relations



My research interests lie in domestic politics of foreign policy (both foreign policies at a strategic level and specific decisions in face of certain incidents). I would like to identify a range of critical players involved, and see how their interactions shape diplomatic decisions. I will also weave the implications of ongoing domestic transformations into the policy-making process. In the end, I wish to figure out the relevance between domestic variables (regime type, political system, domestic landscape of political power) and the foreign policy-making patterns of major powers.
