Abstract: Is there such a thing as Common European Foreign Policy? In evaluating European Foreign Policy (EFP), it is important to take into account that EFP is made by the institutions of the EU as well as the institutions of the member states. Recent conceptualizations of foreign policy analysis have focused on actor-specific theories, are best suited for explaining EFP. This paper analyzes the case of the European democracy promotion policies toward the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since the beginning of the 1990s the African Great Lakes region has been the target of continued involvement on the part of the European Union as a whole as well as some of its member states. Drawing on James Rosenau's framework, this paper seeks to demonstrate how and when different actors influence the initiation and implementation phases of foreign policy making. Within the analysis of each stage, this paper mainly focuses on comparing the respective role and influence of the institutions of the member states as well as the institutions of the EU. The analysis of the case presented in this paper illustrates the extent to which each of these actors is relevant to the making of foreign policy and whether or not it is justified to talk about a Common European Foreign Policy and what we mean by this.

Abstract: Combatants’ perspectives on the long term impact of conflict rarely feature in work on political violence. Existing literature tends to emphasise questions of mobilization, strategy, and organisation rather than lived experience. Hence, although increasingly urgent questions are being asked about returning ‘foreign fighters’, knowledge about the effects and experience of involvement in transnational conflict remains weak. This paper draws on the life history accounts of a small number of ‘foreign fighters’ who took part in jihad over the last 30 years; from Afghanistan in the 1990s to Libya in 2011. Former combatants’ life histories offer a rich source of material by which to understand why people move away from violence, what involvement in conflict means to them, and how these experiences influence the pattern of their lives. In exploring these issues with a focus on individual processes of sense-making, the paper examines what informs post-conflict trajectories. It does so by interpreting accounts of narrative identity in the context of wider collective political, religious, and ideological narratives, and in relation to the political imagination reflected in their life histories. Based on interviews with ‘foreign fighters’ involved in jihad this paper offers a rich, qualitative account of their memories of becoming involved, how disengagement and reintegration are subjectively experienced and recalled, what the longer-term biographical effects of involvement in political violence are, and how current selves interpret former selves.

Abstract: U.S. governors lead overseas missions seeking investment and promoting trade, establish international offices, meet with heads of government, receive ambassadors and take positions on foreign policy. This paper attempts to describe how governors are involved in participating in U.S. foreign policy and explain why governors seek to voice their views and play an active role in working with leaders and issues beyond their state’s borders. The paper draws upon theories of international relations, federalism and foreign policy analysis and argues that U.S. states and governors need to be better conceptualized and considered in each. Analysis reveals that U.S. states with higher levels of foreign investment and lower unemployment rates as well as governors with greater degrees of institutional and personal powers and prior jobs such as a member of Congress, U.S. Senator, or Ambassador are more likely to have higher degrees of foreign policy activity. Findings also indicate that governors are more likely to participate in foreign policy during wartime and more likely to be Republicans.

Abstract: Much of the literature on policy and public opinion shows that policy change does no occur in a political vacuum. In democracies, elected officials usually need, at minimum, tactic support of their constituencies. Research in the last quarter century in the United States, for example, has demonstrated that, contrary to previous research, a positive relationship between public sentiment and government policy in the US may exist.
