The paper shall look at the various aspects which are imperative in the creation of national and foreign policy. Since the policies framed at the national level are maligned in the structure of foreign policy, it is crucial to understand the growing relation between the two of these policies.
“The main reason why the notion of national interest is given such enormous, indeed decisive, weight in explaining the foreign policy behavior of any country, including India, is because of the widespread belief that the Realism paradigm, even in its crudest form, accurately describes and explains the essential character and functioning of the world order.” The paper shall analyze the disparity, if any, between realism and national interest. This will help the reader understand where the distinction lies between the independence of the policies as well as the dependency on reality for a nation to frame its policies. Current affairs take a major toll in shaping the policy of any state and therefore it is imperative to gain an understanding of the same.
Introduction: A state is an actor in international politics which is dependent on other nations. A state does not have a specific way of running the country as the focus of the nation keeps on changing and shifting from time to time.

Moreover, the state is perceived in a cartographic and not sociological sense, i.e. as a 'national-territorial totality' encompassing that whole space marked on any map as the country in question.” Understanding from the above statement, a State is always inter-related with different nation states. This defeats the idea of total independence, which is true in this context to the extent that States are always dependent on each other to perform actions pertaining to their national interests.

It has been argued by Buller and Gamble that academics have been overly hasty in deciding what Europeanization is, and thus endangering the discussions on this subject with confusion and perhaps even impeding its' theoretical progression.

The conclusion from this study states that States have continued violating the Federal law. For example, in 2014, voters from the states of Colorado and Washington voted and legalized marijuana in their states but the constitution states that marijuana is illegal under federal law.
