Within the broad field of International Relations, Stephen Hoadley works primarily in the sub-discipline of Foreign Policy Analysis. He finds most satisfying intellectually, and most feasible for student research, the exploration of why particular governments pursue particular foreign policies, considering not only international opportunities and threats but also the domestic institutions and political influences that shape policies. He treats foreign policies as encompassing not only diplomacy, security, and trade but also aid, cultural exchange, and advocacy of arms control, human rights and environmental protection.
