The standard emphasis is made on external and international factors with the conclusion that small states are more likely to bandwagon with threatening great powers than to balance against them 다운로드. Contrary to this approach, this article suggests that state- and individual-level variables can play a greater role in explaining the foreign policy behavior of small states and that small states sometimes choose to balance rather than bandwagon, especially when elite ideology is deeply embedded in formulating foreign policy 007 스펙터.
