As Larson points out, historical evidence is “essential to assess the accuracy of psychological explanations of foreign policy decisions,” because experiments generate useful hypotheses about cognitive and motivational influence, albeit in an artificial environment, in need of “validation by real-world data” (Larson in Elman and Elman 2001: 327).

Such “what if” questions, which are employed across disciplines, can help identify the importance of hypothesized variables that are assumed to have been absent.

Using the integrated approach, I found that no one approach provided the best explanation of this conflict, but when all five were used, a fuller and more complete understanding emerged.
