How do states make foreign policy decisions? What factors influence states' international behavior and prospects for war and peace? This seminar has two main goals: to familiarize students with the burgeoning literature on the relationship between domestic politics and international relations, and to help students bridge the academic and policy gap in international relations. Topics will include regime type, war, and peace; diversionary conflict; public opinion; nationalism and democratization; individual leaders' personality traits and time in office; perceptions and misperceptions; signaling; international cooperation; and trade and economic policy.

When Offered Fall.
