American foreign policy is a highly complicated, ongoing project of protecting and advancing American interests to abroad, primarily to other nation states, but to non-state actors and supranational bodies as well. It is primarily led by the State Department within the Executive branch of the US Federal government, but is also composed of historical norms, behaviors, as well as international norms and de-facto legal components that profoundly shape the resulting policy.

A great roundup of regional foreign policy concerns and forward-looking assessments can be found in a number of sources, and I've found this course to be particularly useful and well referenced.
