  Doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Doctrine, from Latin doctrina, (compare doctor), means "a body of teachings" or "instructions", taught principles or positions, as the body of teachings in a branch of knowledge or belief system.
In matters of foreign policy, a doctrine is a body of axioms fundamental to the exercise of a nation's foreign policy.
Doctrines of this sort are almost always presented as the personal creations of one particular political leader, whom they are named after.

Comparing Democratic foreign policy and its results with the current administration, one can see that President Bush and the Republican party entered the 2000 elections with a plan for US foreign policy and after the attacks on September 11, 2001, was able to push that plan through without too much dissent.
President Clinton’s actions in Kosovo were aligned with the foreign policy that he had outlined in 1992; the US had taken action to provide aid in a region of humanitarian concern. The same cannot be said for his inaction surrounding the conflict in Rwanda a year earlier.
While Kosovo and Rwanda are two stark examples of unclear Clinton foreign policy, crisis in Haiti and the reason for Clinton’s authorization of the use of military force also challenge the argument that Clinton had a foreign policy; some maintain that Clinton involved the US in Haiti at the request of the Black Congressional Caucus.

At that time, the foreign policy debate was revolving around the question of Russia's belonging: whether the country should develop its foreign policy primarily to the West or the East.
The second factor that influenced the creation of the foreign policy doctrine of 1993 was the bitter experience of the miscalculated foreign policy of 1991-1993 when Russia hastily proclaimed itself a member of the Western political community and, in Mr.
The idea of multilateral foreign policy came with the understanding that it would not be possible for Russia to survive in the new international environment, had it not created a network for cooperation with all the meaningful international actors including international organizations, both globally and regionally.

 Russia revamps foreign policy [Free Republic]
The foreign policy statement seems to suggest a pragmatic, pro-Western approach by Putin, but Russian policy is ever-changing, reacting to events.
Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov described the approach as "pragmatism" and said one of the key concepts is that Russian foreign policy "should effectively help solve domestic tasks."
The emphasis on economics is in part a response to criticism that the Foreign Ministry has been slow to defend such national interests as the competition for Caspian Sea oil in recent years.

A foreign policy doctrine, however, it is not.
The bottom line is that while the nature of other societies should always be a foreign policy consideration, it cannot and should not always be the foreign policy priority.

The new foreign policy doctrine stresses that a "general improvement of the situation in Asia" is of "crucial importance" to Russia.
At the same time, one of Russia's main foreign policy goals will be "the development of friendly ties with key Asian states, primarily China and India." In particular, Russia will aim to raise the level of political ties with China to that of economic ones.

 Rage, Hubris, and Regime Change by Ken Jowitt - Policy Review, No. 118   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Bush national security doctrine is a response to the likely proliferation of horrendous “wildcat violence” when state disintegration and/or the covert actions of tyrannical regimes offer movements of rage access to insidious weapons whose advanced technology demands only global reach, not global power.
The Bush doctrine may posit that war against rogue states, the end of terrorism, and democratic development go together by way of regime change; the strategic reality might be quite different.
In this irony of ironies, the Bush administration’s identification of regime change as critical to its anti-terrorist policy and integral to its desire for a democratic capitalist world has led to an active “Leninist” foreign policy in place of Fukuyama’s passive “Marxist” social teleology.

But until now, the debate over what kind of foreign policy American exceptionalism demands was always conducted in those terms: geography and democracy, distance and engagement, realism and idealism.
In sum, the Bush doctrine proclaims the emancipation of a colossus from international constraints (including from the restraints that the United States itself enshrined in networks of international and regional organizations after World War II).
Iraq is seen by the new exceptionalists as the best place to test the new doctrine: It has a horrid regime, a record of aggressions and violations of UN demands, and a history of relentless questing for weapons of mass destruction.

 And Now, A Clinton Doctrine? -- Ivo H. Daalder   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Nixon Doctrine in 1969 took a step back, asking countries in Asia to do more to ensure their own internal security and prepare for defense against all but major powers.
This self-described foreign policy doctrine is more ambitious than any of its predecessors, committing American power not only to defend vital national interests in a specific region but to protect human rights wherever and whenever they are violated.
The real Clinton Doctrine is that America may intervene militarily, but only if the killings have been shown on television, if the country is located in an area of strategic significance, and if air power alone can do the job at acceptable cost.

 Boston.com / News / Boston Globe / Ideas / The Kennan century
Kennan's most significant policy pronouncements adhered to the foreign policy doctrine known as realism, founded on the idea that nations should act in their own self-interest rather than any desire to improve the world.
Through the 1940s and `50s, he spoke out against the policy of "rollback," the notion that Americans should capitalize on their immense military advantage to challenge Stalin directly.
The "realities of American foreign policy" (a term Kennan used frequently) dictated cutting American losses in Vietnam, seeking nuclear disarmament, and working to reverse environmental degradation -- policies he defended strictly in terms of national interests.

 Machiavellian foreign policy
Even more blunt was a 1980 article in the influential Foreign Affairs by John Hopkins political scientist Robert W. Tucker; in regard to Central America, he wrote, "we have regularly played a determining role in making and in unmaking governments, and we have defined what we have considered to be the acceptable behavior of governments.
The purpose of its policy in Central America, said the U.S. government, was to protect the country from the Soviet threat: a Soviet base in Nicaragua and a possible Soviet base in El Salvador.
In the operations of U.S. foreign policy after World War II, there were a few bold people who rejected Machiavellian subservience and refused to accept the going orthodoxies.

 Bush Doctrine
The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are the defining aspects of what has become known as the Bush Doctrine, a foreign policy marked by strategic military preemption and unilateralism, and making no distinction between terrorists and those who harbor them.
These neo-conservative tendencies represent a marked change from previous foreign policy doctrines, and have given rise to serious questions about the role of America as the dominant power in a modern, globalized world.
The Washington Post reported (June 2004) that the "Bush doctrine could become the biggest casualty of U.S. intervention in Iraq," as "the occupation of Iraq has increasingly undermined, and in some cases discredited, the core tenets of President Bush's foreign policy" (Washington Post: Iraq Ocupation Erodes Bush Doctrine).

On May 9, 2001, the National Committee on American Foreign Policy convened a closed-door and off-the-record roundtable discussion on "Can Muslims Accept Israel in Their Midst?" The panelists were Muslim scholars at U.S. universities teaching Islamic law and former Muslim diplomats now residing in the West.
The purpose of this report is to make available to the foreign policy community the views that were expressed at the roundtable.
It was recalled by one panelist that the supremacy of Islam²constitutes the doctrinal motivation of "jihad" (holy war) that allowed Arabs to conquer a vast empire stretching from India and China to the Atlantic and Spain in the seventh and eighth centuries.
