Political Cooperation

(p.139) Chapter Five Political Cooperation
The Foreign Policy Disconnect
University of Chicago Press

This chapter considers political relationships with other countries: diplomatic and other nonmilitary approaches to terrorism, diplomatic relations with other countries, international treaties and agreements, and cooperation through international organizations. It shows that the U.S. public seeks international cooperation when it comes to political relationships. Large majorities of Americans favor having diplomatic relations with countries that are potential foes. They favor a variety of diplomatic and multilateral measures to combat terrorism; express a high level of support for the United Nations (UN); favor various concrete measures to increase the UN's capability and effectiveness; and back international treaties—several of which have been rejected by U.S. government officials—concerning the control of nuclear weapons, the prohibition of land mines, measures against global warming, and the International Criminal Court. Most Americans also favor using diplomatic means to promote human rights and democracy abroad.

Keywords:   political relationships, international treaties, diplomatic relations, international relations, terrorism, United Nations, nuclear weapons, land mines, global warming, International Criminal Court
