Transcript of "Topic 9 pp"

  1. 1. Foreign policy  Grace Etherington 
  2. 2. What is foreign policy? A strategy that is developed by a nation with a purpose of enabling them to deal with other nations Communication between nations
  3. 3. President The president can send proposals for legislation in which congress has a decisive voice after the proposal is submitted to the senate or congress for approval The president can take independent action which makes it more difficult to change a policy in a short amount of time Congress normally supports the president
  4. 4. Congress Congress can make foreign policy through resolutions and policy statements in which the executive branch can support it or not Another way is legislative restrictions/ funding denials in which it is carried out through congress and decides whether to adopt it or not
  5. 5. The Marshall plan George C. Marshall spoke to the graduating class at Harvard University about the aftermath of World War 11 and the US needed a program of assistance to countries in Europe. He stated that the US should do whatever they can do to assist in the return of normal economic health. Congress then approved his plan and by 1952 the US had sent $13,000 million in economic aid and technical assistance to 16 European countries. It became known as a joint European-American venture. The Marshall plan was giving aid to another country, therefore seeking an alliance with another nation and helping them out which is why it was so important to the foreign policy because the US was looking out for another nation besides themselves.
  6. 6. NATO NATO's primary purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of its members through political and military means. It promotes democratic values and encourages consultation. It is also committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. Currently NATO expresses concern over Turkey's decision to co-produce a missile defense system with a Chinese firm and the US says the Chinese missile defense system would not work with NATO systems.
  7. 7. The United Nations The United Nations is committed to maintain international peace and security, developing friendly relationships among nations and promoting social progress. It works with foreign policy because it secures peace and nonviolence with other nations and makes the people feel safe. It also encourages respect for each others rights and freedoms which makes foreign policy friendly. A current issue is in Kosovo elections are taking place and the United Nations mission there said that the police is taking necessary measures to ensure safety after the attacks of two candidates.
  8. 8. World Hunger Organization The purpose is to educate the public and target groups about the causes of hunger and malnutrition. They also promote individual and collective commitments to sustainable hunger solutions. This helps with the foreign policy because it is a group that wants to cure worldwide hunger, therefore relationships are created with different nations. A current issue the climate change puts the worlds food supply in danger for the upcoming decades. It will potentially undermine crop production and prices increasing at a time when demand for food will soar.
  9. 9. US citizens In the Middle East, US has made itself a prominent role by using its diplomatic, economic and military power in support of its national interests. The US supported Israel and in response the American economy and jobs are tied to a continually upgrading Israeli army because of all the American military equipment that was used in support for Israel. 241 marines were killed in the Middle East The gulf war won the US the gratitude of the oil-rich states of the Persian Gulf for eliminating the Iraqi military threat.
