Political and Social Psychology in decision-making process: an analysis of Israeli politics

  • Karina Stange Calandrin


The main goal is to propose a research on the formulation of foreign policy in Israel from the point of view of the responsible institutions and bureaucracies. The foreign policy decision-making process can be understood as a complex arrangement between institutions and bureaucracies responsible for decision-making. The central argument deals with the character of the decisions taken by the Israeli government, in which the pragmatism of decision-making would be overestimated, since emotions would have a central role in the decision-making process.
