The definition of hawkish is this: it is an aggressive stance. Just as a hawk is aggressive in hunting its prey, being hawkish relates to the aggressive stance taken with regard to the topic. For example, if there is a threat of high inflation, to describe the reserve bank of a country being hawkish in any official statement may mean they are leaning towards a stronger action such as favouring an increase in interest rates to dampen high inflation. The antonym (opposite) to hawkish is dovish, so it is a non-aggressive, cautious stance.
