Excerpt

The dynamics of foreign policy decision-making often present us with the essence of that foreign policy. Though numerous other factors impact on a country’s foreign policy, the structures and processes of the decision-making system allow us to examine how foreign policy decisions of countries were, are, and will be forged, as numerous studies of foreign policy have shown. This text seeks to add to the body of knowledge relating to foreign policy decision-making by examining and analyzing the nature, profile, frameworks, and dynamics of foreign policy decisionmaking in Nigeria.
