Chapter 10, by Juliet Kaarbo, summarizes the main findings of the preceding chapters on the selected public policy approaches and draws out key insights from public policy research that can be transferred to FPA. The chapter argues that bringing public policy approaches into FPA holds the promise of theoretical and methodological innovation in the field, widens the scope of FPA, helps exploring novel connections between the internal and the external in policy-making and invites reflections on the nature of foreign policy. At the same time, the conclusion discusses possible pitfalls of linking the fields of Public Policy and FPA, for example the dangers of adding to the theoretical incoherence in FPA and of further distancing the subfield from International Relations. Finally, the chapter provides suggestions for future research at the interface between public and foreign policies.
