Foreign Powers and Intervention in Armed Conflicts
Stanford University Press

This chapter explains the economic interests in belligerent economies in conjunction with the representative institutions of intervening states. It also develops specific empirical implications based on the framework against cases of intervention in international conflicts and analyzes them for the post-World War II period. Macrolevel data revealed that the most vital variation in policymakers' incentives to protect international trade with intervention can be observed on the basis of the democracy–autocracy distinction. Institutionalized democracies have receptive tendencies in public spending and are reluctant to develop security policies for economic goals that benefit private economic actors compared to nondemocracies. Commonly, belligerents engaged in a limited conflict that offers few chances for external states to engage in expansive interventions. Empirical data reveals that when their nationals have important economic stakes in a foreign market, states intervene to protect those stakes against the repercussions of international conflicts.

Keywords:   economic interests, belligerent economies, intervention, international conflicts, international trade, institutionalized democracies, foreign market
