Domestic sources of Post-Communist Foreign Policy. Institutional analysis of Hungary and Romania 1990-2000
AbstractThe major goal of the thesis is to analyze whether the domestic/institutional approach is appropriate to evaluate the foreign policy making of postcommunist states, with a consideration of two cases: Hungary and Romania. There are strong arguments for such a study. First, there is no “classical” approach related to this matter. Second, there is no previous attempt to analyze the impact of the domestic state-building process in the foreign policy making. There are some models (Atkinson 2000) about the domestic sources of foreign policy making in the case of traditional “rival” states, but there is no test of the model(s) on the postcommunist countries. Third, while there are studies on the relationship between national identity and foreign policy in the case of postcommunist countries (Prizel 1997) there is no approach in the case of two postcommunist countries involved in a mutual process of historical reconciliation (Romcsic and Kiraly 2000). Fourth, in spite of a literature focused on the domestic features of foreign policy making in non-Western settings, or in the case of small states, there is no attempt to evaluate and test these hypotheses in the case of postcommunist countries. Fifth, the thesis will try to argue that the hypotheses proposed for the analysis of foreign policy making are available in the case of small, non-Western, European, democratizing, post-communist states, such Hungary and Romania.
