ULOGA KONGRESA U OBLIKOVANJU VANJSKE POLITIKE SAD-A PREMA SFRJ 1990. I 1991. GODINE / THE ROLE OF US CONGRESS IN SHAPING AND FORMULATING THE US FOREIGN POLICY TO SFRY IN 1990 AND 1991
Keywords:USA, Yugoslavia, Senate, Congress, Bob Dole
The goal of this paper is to analyze the role of Congress in the formulation of American foreign policy towards Yugoslavia with special reference to the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1991. The paper is based on currently available Congressional archival materials, archives of individual former Senators, and media reports from that period. This paper will try to prove that some key members of the Senate started following the events in Yugoslavia very early on and that through their activities in the Senate they tried to shape the US foreign policy towards Yugoslavia in 1991.
