Was there a Clinton doctrine ? President Clinton's foreign policy reconsidered.

Dumbrell, J. (2002) 'Was there a Clinton doctrine ? President Clinton's foreign policy reconsidered.', Diplomacy & statecraft., 13 (2). pp. 43-56.


This article discusses the concept of 'doctrine' within American foreign policy and seeks to locate a possible Clinton Doctrine. It argues, against some interpretations of the Clinton presidency, that Clinton's foreign policy did have a degree of coherence necessary to sustain a 'doctrine'. The broad development of Clinton's foreign policy between 1993 and 2001 is summarized and assessed. Five possible Clinton doctrines are investigated. The article concludes that the best case for being regarded as the Clinton Doctrine relates to the doctrine of 'rogue states'.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Bill Clinton, American foreign policy, Rogue states.
