GOVT 85.39 Public Opinion and American Foreign Policy

This course investigates public opinion about U.S. foreign policy. We examine prominent scholarly debates about whether foreign policy public opinion is rational, coherent, and a factor in policy outcomes. The course will be structured around several important questions, including: Does the American public have organized views about foreign policy? How do ideology, partisanship, values, and facts shape foreign policy attitudes? To what extent do leaders and the media shape foreign policy public opinion? Does the public affect foreign policy decision-making, either directly or by influencing voting behavior?
