Abstract or Summary
  • When analyzing foreign policy, a significant question arises. How do nations make decisions about foreign engagement and neutrality? Understanding what factors and influences shape foreign policy decisions is often a difficult task as the motivation for action is never clear or absolute. This work will analyze whether or not the factors that influenced these policy changes have been consistent from the 19th century to the modern era. To investigate these questions, this work will analyze the factors that influenced neutrality policy decision making during the 19th and 20th centuries. The first case study will examine British policy debates over British involvement in building ships for the Confederacy during the Civil War. This Civil War era study investigates how the British created policy in a position of naval and economic hegemonic power. The second case study will analyze the United States in the years leading up to World War II. As the world has become progressively globalized and interconnected, there are continuous themes that effect neutrality policy formation across the 19th and 20th centuries. Current and future economic interests, and physical and political security continue to be the most important considerations that shape a nation’s foreign policy.
