Abstract [en]

The Bush-doctrine caused a lot of discussion and a great stir, when it was issued in September 2002. The debate and discussion accused the doctrine to be quite offensive, when it promoted pre-emptive strike as a way to defend the country against terrorists and “rough states”. The purpose of this study is to investigate ways that the Bush doctrine may influence international politics and international relations. This is examined through a qualitative analysis of articles by four central thinkers within the field of international relations.

To be able to reach the purpose the following questions will be answered: -Is the Bush-doctrine in the frame of the realist school? -Which opinions are there about the Bush-doctrine, in the main debate? Which consequences can the doctrine lead to? -Which future scenarios are there? Due to four thinkers in international relations.

The study concludes that the Bush-doctrine is in the frame of the realist school. Some thinkers in the field of international relations believe that USA dominate the world order, if not in all the political areas, but military. Thinkers believe that the security strategy is in opposition to international law and the principle of sovereignty. Other thinkers mean that the American national strategy is correct, that USA should work to sustain their super power and work for the nation’s interests and goals internationally.
