|Title:||Irish Foreign Policy||Authors:||Tonra, Ben||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5697||Date:||2001||Abstract:||After decades of disillusionment, the people and government of the Republic of Ireland (hereafter, 'Ireland') have begun to reassess their role and identity in the international system. The Irish state is no longer exclusively defined through its position (mental and geographic) as an 'island behind an island.' While a shared and complex history may always make relationships with Ireland's nearest neighbour problematic, the pursuit of, or flight from, British norms is a decreasing feature of debates in public policy. In its stead is a greater self confidence, an attempt to reach out to other European and small state models and a general ambition to orient the state and its society outwards towards all azimuths rather than eastwards.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Routlege (Taylor & Francis)||Copyright (published version):||2001 Routeledge||Keywords:||Foreign policy;International relations;Ireland||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||William Crotty and David Schmitt (eds.).
