The group mainly examines contemporary debates and concerns, though historical approaches are also welcome. We focus on areas such as domestic influences on foreign policy, bilateral relations, multilateral institutions such as the UN, NATO, the EU or the Commonwealth, sectoral issues such as the use of force in the service of foreign policy, and the economic basis to policy formation. We also analyse and critique conceptual developments. Comparative work between states is particularly welcome.
