    International Policies

    International policies are policies that are adopted by different countries and follow international laws. Western countries or groups of countries will generally agree on a set of rules, laws, or policies that are to be instituted. A country’s foreign policy consists of self-interesting strategies chosen by the state to safeguard its national interests and to achieve its goals within international relations.

    Furthermore, policies can consist of bilaterally or multilaterally determined agreements. These can facilitate many different international actions such as trade, immigration, and foreign direct investments. 

    A country’s foreign policy consists of self-interest strategies chosen by the state to safeguard its national interests and to achieve its goals within international relations. These strategies are employed to interact with other countries. In recent years, the states are forced to interact with non-state actors due to the deepening level of globalization and transnational activities. Since national interests are extremely important, foreign policies are designed by the government through high-level decision making processes.
