Yet states monopolize political decision-making, and civil societies tend still to have a strong sense of their own distinctiveness. Accordingly we need a framework of analysis which takes into account both transnational relations and state foreign policies. Figure 8.1 does this in the form of a four-box quadrant. The vertical axis distinguishes between states and peoples, while the horizontal axis separates the internal from the external (for both societies and states). The boxes indicate the actors and the activities characteristic for each conformation, namely: inside the state; the states external activity; everyday life at the local or national level; and popular relations internationally.
