This panel is comprised of papers associated with the well-known concept of role contestation. However, each paper brings something theoretical or methodologically new to the study of foreign policy role contestation. Theoretically, it incorporates comparisons to socialization as well as traditional domestic-level explanations of foreign policy choices. Methodologically, some of the papers use game theory and multi-level statistical modeling. This combination of novel theoretical and methodological approaches will help push forward research on foreign policy role contestation.
