Abstract and Keywords

This article investigates a unique aspect of New York State governance—its engagement in foreign policymaking. It also discusses some of the ways in which state officials collaborate and build relationships with foreign governments and, particularly in the case of Canada, provincial counterparts in economic, political, cultural, and environmental spheres. It is shown that New York State legislators engage in foreign policymaking on issues that directly affect their constituents, although admittedly to a minimal degree when compared to their executive and judicial counterparts. The New York State judiciary has contributed to the growing body of international human rights law. It then turns to local government engagement in foreign policy. New York foreign policy takes place in social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental sectors touching virtually every corner of the globe. It is suggested that New York State has nothing to lose from strengthened engagement on the global stage.

Keywords: governance, New York State, Canada, foreign policymaking, foreign governments, legislators, judiciary, foreign policy
