Annual BISA Working Group Conference on US Foreign Policy
University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
17-18th September 2009
Papers that address any aspect of U.S. foreign policy - contemporary or historical - will be considered. But those which focus on US foreign policy during Democratic presidential administrations are particularly welcome.
Have Democratic administrations shared any common characteristics with respect to any of the following areas: human rights, humanitarian intervention, foreign aid, alliance-building and maintenance, the application of "soft power." How has the strained relationship between Democratic presidents and the military affected US foreign policy. Are Democratic presidents unduly active overseas to deflect criticism from the right? How might the Obama administration learn from mistakes made by his Democratic predecessors?
Please send individual 300 word abstracts or (preferably) panel proposals to Dr. Lee Marsden/Dr. David Milne, School of Political, Social and International Studies, University of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ by 28 February 2009
