Military Intervention Decisions regarding Humanitarian Crises: Framing Induced Risk Behavior
Boettcher, William A., III
Journal of Conflict Resolution, v48 n3 p331-355 2004
Factors that may affect public support or opposition to U.S. military intervention in humanitarian crises around the world are examined to determine the impact of foreign policy frames on individual risk propensity. The source of the foreign policy frames, type of humanitarian crisis, location of the crisis and race/ethnicity/religion of the endangered population, tolerable ratios of U.S. lives saved/lost to foreign citizens saved/lost, and probability of casualty-free success are also investigated. (Contains 6 tables and 26 footnotes.)
