- n. affairs between nations
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I personally came of age during the Reagan presidency-I was studying international affairs at Columbia, and later working as a community organizer in Chicago-and like many Democrats in those days I bemoaned the effect of Reagan’s policies toward the Third World: his administration’s support for the apartheid regime of South Africa, the funding of El Salvador’s death squads, the invasion of tiny, hapless Grenada.
