Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses how variations in domestic political institutions affect the foreign policy behaviour of states. Although scholars have not agreed on a single theory of how institutions affect foreign policy, they do agree on the general framework. The sections in this article help lay out that general framework, and provide some specific theories that express different visions of how exactly domestic politics affect matters of war and peace.

Keywords: political institutions, domestic, variations, foreign policy behaviour, general framework, war and peace
