It is always risky to pronounce a verdict of death on ideas, even after an extended period of apparent lifelessness, but I predict that we have seen the last of the "sociologists" in political science. . . . What has happened is that others too have penetrated the characteristically sloppy logic and flabby prose to discover the deeper problems of circularity and vacuousness inherent in the approach.

The years between 1919 and 1923 were the period that the legacies of imperial past were resolved through use of force and diplomacy. The strategic end of this period was to transform a dying empire into a young republic, by employing all limited available means. In that sense, it can be suggested that Turkish foreign policy strategy is based on a kind of revisionism which is based on realistic assessments of the surrounding conditions created by the structure.

Cet article vise a brosser un portrait de l’evolution des politiques et des relations commerciales canado-americaines en replacant au cœur de l'analyse la variable du « nationalisme economique ». Il s'appuie sur l'approche « nationaliste » en economie politique internationale, qui permet de comprendre tant le protectionnisme que la liberalisation et surtout, le passage de l'un a l'autre ou la combinaison des deux. Le nationalisme economique constitue une tendance lourde des relations commerciale...

After the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, the UN launched the peacekeeping operation UNIFIL II. Italy embarked on the demanding task of taking responsibility for leading the mission. We present a model of military intervention in multilateral operations that aims at highlighting the mechanisms at stake. In so doing, we argue that an analytical eclectic approach offers a novel explanation of Italy’s behaviour. We explain the drivers of Italy’s intervention in Lebanon in two ways. First, we...

This chapter provides a philosophical and historical context towards the understanding of how Japan has always strove to remain a nation-state par excellence in the tempestuous international relations of the region. Illustrating how the contradictory values of egalitarianism and quest for excellence are deeply engrained in Japanese thinking since late fifteenth century, the chapter outlines how these norms influence the strategy Japan has used in her historical international relations, particula...

Humanitarian interventions (HIs) are a common aspect of US foreign policy. Policy makers acknowledge the importance of public support for interventions, but scholars remain divided about the extent and basis of that support. Using a series of survey experiments, we evaluate attitudes about HIs, assess whether the public supports these interventions for instrumental or moral reasons, and test which aspects of morality are most salient. The findings indicate that interventions addressing humanitar...
