If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Karolina Pomorska.

After interrogating a vast body of literature from International Relations (IR), Foreign Policy Analysis (FPA) and comparative politics on the relation between domestic politics, foreign policy and international relations, I propose to introduce the ‘strategic-relational model’ to the field of FPA and reconceptualise foreign policy as a dialectic produced by the interplay of context, strategy and discourse. I then demonstrate the added value of this conceptualisation through an investigation of key episodes within Italian foreign policy – inter alia, Italy’s Cold War alliance politics, colonial interventions, fascist foreign policy and participation in the wars of Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan.
