American Funding of International Affairs: Congress and the Politics of Foreign Aid
Contact:Prof. Charles Tien

Funding for International Affairs includes money for international development, humanitarian assistance, international security, the State Department, foreign exchange activities, and military sales. How have these different funding accounts fared over time? What explains the changing levels of funding over time? Do presidents have more power than Congress in determining international affairs funding levels. Students will work on a theoretical and empirical research project to help answer these questions.
