The Impact of Globalization on U.S. Foreign Policy

Globalizati***** has had significant effects on U.S. foreign policy since 1990. Globalization is something of a catchall word, referring to a wide *****rray of circumstances and conditions in international relations. Most notably, and perhaps most importantly, globalization interconnects the United States with d*****tant parts of ***** world. Events throughout the *****, seemingly insignificant, can have powerful contagion reactions in the United *****, dramatically affecting foreign ***** (Howell 45).

***** example, seemingly distant issues such as warming in the Polar Regions, outbreaks of bird flu ***** East Asia, or civil war in Iraq all have direct effects on U.S. policies. Foreign policy ***** the United States has l*****g been torn between embracing the networked world that ***** makes possible ***** isolationist ***** that would attempt to divorce the nation from ***** world (Howell 45). During the *****s, the nation's ***** policies were largely interactive, attempting to respond ***** events whose effects could ultimately spread to affect U.S. interests—such as conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, ***** Middle East, and the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

In more recent years the U.S.'s foreign ***** has still been very much affected by globalization, though with notable difference that now the nation's foreign policy is no longer built on ***** consensus but is isolationist in its resolve. Though superfici*****y recent international policy ***** seem to be ***** interested in world affairs—such as terrorism—policies have *****en devised *****out consideration for the other major actors in *****ternational relations. This kind of isolationism creates the very real danger of ignoring ***** multitude of ways in which U.S. *****terests are actively ***** by ***** and international relations.
