The Impact of Globalization on U.S. Foreign Policy

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

For example, seemingly ***** issues such as warming in the Polar Regions, outbreaks of bird flu ***** E*****t Asia, or civil war in Iraq all ***** direct effects on U.S. policies. ***** policy in the United States has long been torn between embracing ***** networked world that globalization makes possible and isolationist policies ***** would attempt to divorce the nation from the world (Howell 45). During the *****s, the nation's foreign ***** were largely interactive, attempting to respond to 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 ***** policy has still been very much ********** by globalization, though with notable difference that now the nation's foreign ***** is no *****er built on international consensus but is isolationist in its resolve. Though superficially recent ***** policy ***** seem to be very interested in world affairs—such as terrorism—policies have *****en devised *****out consideration for the o*****r major actors in international relations. This kind of isolationism creates the very real danger of ig*****ring the multitude ***** ways in which U.S. *****terests are actively affected by ***** and international *****.
