This module introduces students to the study of how states make foreign policy decisions. It considers the social, material, institutional and political contexts for decision-making, and how individual leaders' cognitive and psychological traits influence the choices they make. It thus forms a bridge between the study of leadership, domestic politics, and international relations.
