The Impact of Globalization on U.S. Foreign Policy

Globalizati***** has had significant effects on U.S. foreign policy since 1990. Globalization is something ***** a catchall word, referring to a wide array 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 policy (Howell 45).

***** example, seemingly distant issues such as warming in the Polar Regions, outbreaks of bird flu ***** E*****t Asia, or civil war in Iraq all have direct ***** on U.S. policies. ***** policy ***** the United States has long been torn between embracing ***** networked world that globalization makes possible ***** isolationist ***** that would attempt to divorce the nation from the world (***** 45). During the 1990s, ***** nation's ***** policies were largely interactive, attempting to respond to events whose effects could ultimately spread to affect U.S. interests—such as conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, the Middle East, and ***** AIDS epidemic in Africa.

In more recent years the U.S.'s foreign policy has still been very much ********** 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 superficially recent international policy would seem to be ***** interested in world affairs—such as terrorism—policies have *****en devised *****out consideration for the o*****r major actors in *****ternational relations. This kind of isolationism creates the very real danger of ig*****ring the multitude ***** ways in which U.S. interests are actively affected by globalization and international relations.
