Abstract:

The effects of policy decisions on international behavior are discussed as not adequately separated from the effects of social ecology e.g., power, development, type of political system in traditional behavioral research. The deeper incursions that can be made into policy analysis by behavioral science methods, as distinguished from game theory, are seen to include concepts of goal, drift, and actual states of the international system in research designs, and to analyze gaps between predicted and actual behavior patterns.
