Badie article on doctrine, decisionmaking, and 1979

Dina Badie, a graduate student in political science, will publish an article, entitled “Doctrinal Cycles and the Dual-Crisis of 1979,” in International Studies Perspectives (12:2). The article examines the ways in which doctrines constrain decision-makers and create ideal conditions for crises to emerge. Through a case study of the Nixon Doctrine, it suggests that doctrines limit the scope of phenomena that are defined in security terms, leaving policymakers unable to foresee or manage threats as they emerge. In 1979, this was the case with the Iranian Revolution and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
