Prepare a seven page, case study that uses the process tracing methodology to describe the interaction between foreign policy practitioners on a single issue that results in a success or failure to achieve U.S. objectives. The case should describe the issue, the role and actions of the central participants, the context, and the process of interaction.
Based on your case construction, analyze the interaction of issue, actor, context, and process to develop a conclusion about the diplomatic/foreign policy outcome. Specifically, answer the following questions: • Does the process or outcome illustrate a particular aspect of the Kenneth Waltz’ three-part framework for describing conflict interaction?
• Does the outcome or process confirm or deny one or more of Robert Gilpin’s five hypotheses? The answer will be in the form of a five page paper
