Caporaso, Jim. (1993) "Memo for Roundtable 'The Domestic-International Politics Connection'". In: UNSPECIFIED, Washington, DC. (Unpublished)
[From the Introduction]. As an abstract proposition, we are likely to accept the close connection between domestic and international politics. Arguments about the direction of causal flow center on competing views of how best to understand the connections--from the "inside-out" or the "outside in." The former stresses domestic politics as the starting point; the latter international politics. What is not questioned is the close relationship. The European Community accents the importance of the domestic-international connection. While the member states are identifiably important to the process of integration, there is a close mingling of states and non-state actors in an environment that departs substantially from that described by realist international relations theory. How to think about this process of intermingling in the context of European integration is the subject of this short paper.
