Approaches of Foreign Policy Analysis: Obama’s Decision to Intervene in Libya

The Ibrahim Abu-Lughod Institute of International Studies, in cooperation with Council for British Research in the Levant, cordially invites you to attend a public lecture entitled “Approaches of Foreign Policy Analysis: Obama’s Decision to Intervene in Libya”, by Dr. Toby Dodge,  a Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Director of LSE’s Middle East Centre.

Lecture Description:

On Tuesday 15th March 2011, U.S. President Barak Obama took the decision to seek a new resolution on Libya in the United Nations Security Council.  This resolution gave a hastily assembled military coalition the legal cover it needed to use military force against the regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. This lecture will examine how the four of the dominant approaches to Foreign Policy Analysis, Neo-Classical Realism, the Bureaucratic Politics approach, the Cognitive School and Constructivism set about explaining Obama’s decision.
