F
face. A synonym for prestige. “Saving face” is an informal expression, of Asian origin, used about any policy or public relations maneuver that helps the losing or concessionary side in an interstate dispute preserve public dignity, even when compelled to concede the main point(s) at issue. “Face” is generally considered a lubricant of agreement, and, as such, considerations of face play a role in international bargaining and crisis management and in presentation of the results of diplomacy to domestic and international audiences.
fact-finding mission. An investigative mission undertaken by a disinterested party on the assumption that conflicts may be the product of misperception or lack of information and that once the facts are uncovered rational solutions become possible. The League of Nations made use of such missions, sometimes with success. However, one that led to a mild rebuke of Tokyo’s 1931 invasion of Manchuria occasioned Japan’s withdrawal from the League. The United Nations and the OSCE also use such missions to defuse local conflicts or investigate human rights complaints.
factor analysis. A quantitative approach to explaining causal connections, or factors, said to underlie an observed economic, political, or social problem.
factor endowments. The share of a nation’s inputs required to produce a commodity: capital,labor,land (natural resources). The amounts and interrelations of these factors determine price and the commodities produced by a given economy. The term is a near synonym for factors of production.
