What is Foreign Policy?
A policy that is created to collaborate with other nations
to achieve worldwide goals.
How can the President make
The President can make foreign policy through many
ways, such as responding to foreign events and
making legislation proposals.
How can Congress make
Congress can make foreign policy by legislative
pressure and legislative restrictions/funding denials.
The Marshall Plan
The Marshall Plan was created to assist 16 European
countries in rebuilding their society in the aftermath of
World War II. Congress approved this plan in 1948, and
succeeded in giving 13 million to these countries. I
believe that this was important to the creation of
Foreign Policy because it was a positive reaction to the
disastrous results of WWII, and helped to build more
positive relations between the US and Europe.
NATO in Foreign Policy
NATO’s main goal is to safeguard the security of its
members. It politically encourages cooperation on
defense and security issues to maintain a level of trust
between nations. One event that it is involved in at the
present time is a new strategic plan, introduced in
2010, to deal with crises that can occur. It is in place to
help provide a calm and orderly approach to disasters.
United Nations in Foreign
The United Nations is an organization founded to help
keep international peace and security and develop
friendly relations between nations. One event that the
United Nations was recently involved in was a
conference in Brazil to discuss and agree upon policies
of global economic growth and environmental policies.
World Hunger Organization in
The World Hunger Organization works with nations
around the globe to help end the fight against world
hunger. Their goal is to assist these nations, and
provide better sources of nutrition. One event that they
currently were involved in was the 2010-2012 Somalia
famine that killed many people.
Foreign Policy affect on US
Foreign Policy can be crucial to the security and safety
of the United States Citizens. Foreign Policy is created
to insure that peace and stability is placed
internationally. If the peace is interrupted, it can cause
a breach of safety for our citizens. One example is the
issue of terrorism from other nations on the United
States. The well being of foreign policy is very
important for our safety.
