  • Descrição: The dissonance between high policy and low politics remains a lingering cause of instability in the day-to-day conduct of foreign relations. Agreements between states on contentious territorial and sovereignty issues often fall through the gap between the two. Legalistic approaches and institutional perspectives proposed at regional and national levels do not always resolve issues around people’s rights to resources, spaces and identities which are intrinsically tied to specifically defined local livelihoods and the overlap of contending political economies rather than to broader visions of state-to-state relations and regional stability. Moreover, attempts to run a new course in foreign policy also indicate the problem of the levels of interaction which policies need to address if they are to deliver successes in the long term. Across Asia and Africa, as our authors find, domestic, regional and local politics play an increasingly important role in fashioning policy initiatives and constraining them in many ways as well. Many of the articles in this issue of the IQ address this broader issue and the conflict between intended and unintended consequences of rationally devised policy.
