Summary/Abstract: The research proposes a conceptual framework for understanding perpetrator behavior utilizing role theory through the lens of a foreign policy approach. Frameworks that examine elite genocidal perpetrator behavior rarely give enough consideration to the influence of foreign policy as a source of state-sponsored genocidal policies. This research proposes a model for examining elite perpetrator behavior marrying role theory and foreign policy as a source of genocidal perpetrator behavior. Using Cambodia as a case study, this research proposes a model for further examination both in the Cambodian context and across a number of other cases.
