Abstract

This Paper explores the power behind Costa Rica's foreign policy. It takes a constructivist approach to the analysis of Costa Rica's international influence and then compares it to Ghandian Peace-making. The paper concludes that Costa Rica has exerted more international influence than expected considering its small size, small population, and lack of an army, due to the "soft-power" it has accumulated over the years by following widely accepted international norms.

Keywords: Costa Rica, Foreign Policy, International Norms
