Foreign Policy Decision-Making and Violent Non-State Actors

In this project report we will discuss about foreign policy decision making and violent non state actors. Some other topics discussed are: Challenges to Sovereignty, Foreign Policy Decision-Making during Crisis, Values and Threats, Guerrilla Tactics, Terrorist Tactics, etc. A state’s foreign policy is targeted at many different outside actors. To understand foreign policy behavior, you have to observe how states communicate with other states. In this research, we examine just how foreign policy decision-making while in crisis situation may differ when it is aimed at violent non-state actors. A crisis is understood to be an event when a state perceives a threat to one or more of its basic values, along with an understanding of finite time for response, and a increased possibility of participating in military hostilities. Violent non-state actors are the ones non-state groups which follow their political goals by using or by threatening to use violence. On top of that, the non-state actors of interest are those that endanger an external state’s national interests in a manner that it signifies a crisis to the country, requiring some kind of foreign policy response. This research proposes that because non-state actors lack the majority of the structural features related with a state, for instance a recognized foreign ministry or the insufficient trust states have in a non-state leader’s capability to enforce agreements, states reply to these crises more strongly than they do when addressing crises triggered by states. It has been confirmed by the International Crisis Behavior (ICB) data that the major response by states toward crises brought about by violent non-state actors are more violent than responses to crises triggered by states…..
