In this, the 24th episode of A View from Afar for 2022 political scientist Dr Paul Buchanan and host Selwyn Manning examine whether there is, in reality, such a thing as foreign policy independence in today's world. Specifically, Paul and Selwyn examine the following questions: What does it mean to be foreign policy independent, and what would independence look like? How is foreign policy independence different from foreign policy autonomy and flexibility? What factors inhibit or constrain foreign policy independence (domestic and international)?

And finally: is FP independence possible for a small state in this era, if it ever was, and conversely, do great powers really exercise independence in their foreign affairs?
