Applying international relations theory to contemporary policy : understanding Russia's behaviors and goals in Syria.
MetadataShow full item record
My research includes an investigation of the causative factors of Russia's involvement in the Syrian War and Russia's current interests in global politics. In this project, I have employed a synthetic approach that draws from the analytical toolkits of Realist, Liberal and Constructivist international relations theories. My focus is characterizing Russia's intersubjective and normative perceptions, the effects of global institutions and interdependence on Russia's behaviors, and Russia's material capacities with respect to the Middle East and the Syrian conflict. My goal is not simply to apply theory, but to integrate theory analysis into policy recommendations, particularly with regard to US foreign policy relating to Russia.
