Giacalone, Rita. (2012) Latin American Foreign Policy Analysis: External Influences and Internal Circumstances. Foreign Policy Analysis, doi: 10.1111/j.1743-8594.2011.00176.x

This article reviews the evolution of foreign policy analysis (FPA) in Latin America in order to explore the role played by domestic contextual factors and external theoretical influences. Applying notions that Jorgensen (Journal of International Relations6 (1):9–42) has employed for the study of European FPA, it concludes that incorporating the cultural-institutional context in which Latin American academics write enhances our understanding of national variations and of how internal and external factors get connected.
