1. Stol, J.W. ‘Energy Independence and its Implications for Bilateral Relations with former Energy Supplying States’ The cases of the United States, Nicaragua, and Germany.

Degree: 2018, Leiden University

This thesis addresses state behavior towards their former energy suppliers after the importing state reaches energy independence. Through chapters on the USA, Nicaragua and Germany I have elaborated on the question; if and why states have changed their level of political cooperation with states who formerly supplied their energy needs? Washington favoring shale oil has caused it to remain tied to its Saudi Arabian, Venezuelan, and Nigerian suppliers through the global oil market. Washington refrains from going it alone versus its former suppliers and simply retracted from these markets, highlighting the limits of independence through shale. Nicaragua is truly independent because Managua switched to a renewable-dominated energy system thereby making it independent from Venezuelan oil supplies, as well as the global oil market. The German chapter highlights a clear correlation with bilateral Russo-German relations and German energy policy, but the Energiewende has not made Germany independent from Russian energy. Advisors/Committee Members: Van der Maat, Eelco (advisor).

2. McLaughlin, Ivan Eugene. A new world a new American foreign policy: the Carter administration, Nicaragua, and the legacy of the Vietnam War, 1977-1981.

Degree: 2012, University College Cork

The impact of the Vietnam War conditioned the Carter administration’s response to the Nicaraguan revolution in ways that reduced US engagement with both sides of the conflict. It made the countries of Latin America counter the US approach and find their own solution to the crisis, and allowed Cuba to play a greater role in guiding the overthrow of Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza Debayle. This thesis re-evaluates Carter’s policy through the legacy of the Vietnam War, because US executive anxieties about military intervention, Congress’s increasing influence, and US public concerns about the nation’s global responsibilities, shaped the Carter approach to Nicaragua. Following a background chapter, the Carter administration’s policy towards Nicaragua is evaluated, before and after the fall of Somoza in July 1979. The extent of the Vietnam influence on US-Nicaraguan relations is developed by researching government documents on the formation of US policy, including material from the Jimmy Carter Library, the Library of Congress, the National Security Archive, the National Archives and Records Administration, and other government and media sources from the United Nations Archives, New York University, the New York Public Library, the Hoover Institution Archives, Tulane University and the Organization of American States. The thesis establishes that the Vietnam legacy played a key role in the Carter administration’s approach to Nicaragua. Before the overthrow of Somoza, the Carter administration limited their influence in Nicaragua because they felt there was no immediate threat from communism. The US feared that an active role in Nicaragua, without an established threat from Cuba or the Soviet Union, could jeopardise congressional support for other foreign policy goals deemed more important. The Carter administration, as a result, pursued a policy of non-intervention towards the Central American country. After the fall of Somoza, and the establishment of a new government with a left wing element represented by the Sandinistas, the Carter administration emphasised non-intervention in a military sense, but actively engaged with the new Nicaraguan leadership to contain the potential communist influence that could spread across Central America in the wake of the Nicaraguan revolution.
