    Seminar on "American Policy Formulation: Internal Dynamics and External Influences

    Date: September 11 - 12 (opening on evening of Sep 11, whole day Sep 12)

    Place: Nikko Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

    Summary: As the U.S. is a major player in world politics, there is much value in examining the nature and intricacies of the American political process, especially as they affect specific interests inside as well as outside the country. The U.S. is the world's most powerful democracy, and what happens inside the American nation is of tremendous concern and consequence not only to its citizens, but also to the world at large.

    The aim of this Seminar, therefore, is as follows:

    (1) to examine the relationship between the institutions and forces that influence policy formulation;

    (2) to study the strategies used by individuals and groups to affect policy outcomes in their favor;

    (3) to explore the relationship between the three main arms of American government: the Executive, Legislature, and Judiciary; and to see how these institutions operationalize the checks and balances that support the notion of "a Government of the people, by the people, and for the people;

    (4) to appreciate the role and limits of presidential power in domestic and foreign policy formulation;

    (5) to evaluate how all the above institutions, forces, and processes affect American foreign policy objectives, strategies, interests, and performance globally, and specifically in the Asia-Pacific region, and;

    (6) to determine how Asia-Pacific countries and regional groupings like ASEAN might best pursue their interests vis-a-vis the American political system.

    Government officials, academics, diplomats, and journalists, are expected to attend this seminar.

    Opening Address: Lynn B. Pascoe, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia (tentative).

    Keynote: Dr. Eugene R.Wittkopf, Professor of Political Science, Louisiana State University (confirmed).
