From Conception to Diplomatic Practice

Ernest Petrič

Foreign Policy: From Conception to Diplomatic Practice represents an original and important contribution to the study of foreign policy, uniquely framed by the experiences of small and new countries. Ambassador Ernest Petrič artfully brings together academic expertise and years of diplomatic experience to provide a thorough treatment of national and international environments, the foreign policy decision making process and an original analysis of the means of foreign policy and diplomacy. The role of the United Nations, the EU, strategic actors and the role of foreign policy as a diplomatic instrument are examined. Finally a reflection of the foreign policy concerns of small and new countries, with special attention to Slovenia and legal aspects are offered.

Foreign Policy: From Conception through Diplomatic Practice successfully integrates scholarly theory with empirical evidence. The book's clear and evocative style will appeal to foreign policy professionals, academics and students of diplomacy, international relations and international law.

So even though the EU now has more robust mechanisms for diplomacy, and the revised
