Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to analyze whether there are any differences in how the two

American presidential administrations of Clinton and Obama have formed their foreign

policy, in regards to North Korea. In order to carry out my analysis I have gathered relevant

material from public statements made by Presidents Clinton and Obama, as well as their

respective Secretaries of Defense. My theoretical framework consists of constructivism, and

of doctrine. The material is then presented and illustrated with the help of word clouds. The

conclusions I have been able to reach show that there were different foreign policy doctrines

between Presidents Clinton and Obama. President Clinton’s administration was more focused

on preventing North Korea from becoming a nuclear state, whereas the administration of

President Obama needed to prevent the North Koreans from using their nuclear arsenal.
