6.2690 The Foreign Policy of Nazi Germany.
This paper looks at the foreign policy of Nazi Germany. The author believes that the Versailles Treaty had set the foundation for Nazi foreign policy, but anti-Semitism gave it its life. German humiliation in World War One and German anti-Semitism combined together to cause the rise of the Neo-Nazis and shape their foreign policy. It would be a diplomacy marked by a resentment that sought vengeance. In the climate of humiliation, that Germans believed they had suffered, the Nazis framed a foreign policy around nationalism and a thirst for revenge. It was these ingredients that shaped, and gave life to, Nazi foreign policy in the Second World War. 23 pgs. 33 f/c. 15b.

7.3817 Can Economic Sanctions Mitigate Internal Conflict and Halt Human Rights Abuses?
In an attempt to influence the behaviour of other states, while avoiding the consequences of military conflict, many states or coalitions of states employ economic sanctions. Proponents of these types of measures argue that they can and do influence the actions of sanctioned states. Their critics argue that they carry little diplomatic weight and impose undue suffering on innocent individuals within the sanctioned state. This case examines the application of sanctions against Iraq in the past decades and concludes that they have had few positive consequences and profoundly negative and immoral impacts. 10 pgs.
