Foreign policy

  1. 1. Jordan Bjerken
  2. 2. Foreign policy is a policy such as a treaty that is made with other nations in order to achieve a national desire.
  3. 3. There are multiple ways in which a President can make foreign policy. Two of these ways are: ◦ Response to foreign events: The President will initiate U.S. Policy in reaction to an event or movement in a foreign nation that challenges US desires. ◦ Negotiate international agreements: The President has the ability to negotiate with other countries, keeping congress in mind, and make such agreements as trade and arms reductions.
  4. 4. Similarly, Congress has the power to make foreign policies. Two of which being: ◦ Legislative directives: Congress will make legislature establishing objectives and programs to direct the executive branch into specific tasks. ◦ Legislative pressure: Congress can threaten the executive branch with legislation in order to pressure the executive branch into action.
  5. 5.  In layman’s terms, the Doctrine states that Europe must stop colonization in the Western hemisphere or else.  At the time the doctrine was implemented, we may not have had any power backing the “or else,” but this the United States’ first major foreign policy. The doctrine is the most important because it became the outline for how the US works in foreign policy and similar doctrines like the Eisenhower Doctrine have followed.
  6. 6.  NATO’s main role in foreign policy is operating in crisis-management, safeguarding democracy, and working to peaceful resolutions for disputes.  Currently, NATO is in Kosovo maintaining peace, and is helping build a professional security force.
  7. 7.  The UN’s main roles in foreign policy would include working with nations to improve standards of living, just improving international relationships, maintaining peace, and promoting and protecting human rights  Currently, UN operations in monitoring the borders of the North and South parts of the Abyei region in Sudan and is authorized to use force in order to stop violence, and protect the citizens and humanitarian workers.
  8. 8.  The World Hunger Organization’s role in foreign policy is to implement policies that assist the large number of people facing hunger problems due to conflict or other problem.  Currently, a World Hunger Organization, The World Food Program, is performing a food security and nutrition program in the Gaza region of Mozambique
  9. 9. Despite a foreign policy being made with another nation far away, US citizens can feel an affect. If it is a trade agreement, prices and amounts here at home might change for certain foreign goods. If the policy escalates to war, taxes might raise to fund, or they might gradually drop if a treaty is signed to end the war. The policies might also just trigger moral responses such as anger to abuses towards human rights and democracy in another nation.
