We view this topic through a variety of lenses, including theories of individual cognition and bias, small-group decision-making, bureaucratic politics, and organizational behavior. These different approaches are applied to several in-depth cases studies drawn from the last fifty years of U.S. foreign policy. Prerequisites: Junior or Senior standing; GOV 241 (International Politics) or equivalent; and one college-level course in American politics. GOV 244 (Foreign Policy of the United States) or equivalent is recommended.
