How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations? History, Issues, And Approaches, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang Oct 1994

How Can Taiwan Enter The United Nations? History, Issues, And Approaches, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang

Politics Faculty Publications and Presentations

This paper examines the history and issues related to, as well as offers some suggestions to, Taiwan's efforts to enter the United Nations. It first juxtaposes the UN's idealism (universal representation) with its realism (power politics) and reviews the evolution of the China representation issue in light of the changing politics in the United Nations. Then it tests Taiwan's statehood, which is requisite for UN membership, and discusses the domestic and international reasons for Taiwan's UN bid. In the final section, the paper demonstrates the prerequisites, models, and approaches for Taiwan's reentry into the United ...

From Empire Defence To Imperial Retreat: Britain's Postwar China Policy And The Decolonization Of Hong Kong, James T. H. Tang May 1994

From Empire Defence To Imperial Retreat: Britain's Postwar China Policy And The Decolonization Of Hong Kong, James T. H. Tang

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

Attempts to examine Hong Kong as an issue in British postwar colonialpolicy often emphasize the unique nature of the colony, andtherefore a special case in British decolonization. Hong Kong hasbeen regarded as an unconventional colonial entity, an anachronismin the modern world. But others argue that the word colony is not anappropriate term to describe it, except in the most severely technicallegal sense, because of its spectacular industrial and economicdevelopment since the end of the Second World War.' Nonetheless,Hong Kong has existed as a British crown colony since I842, and itscolonial political structures have remained more or less the same ...

Where The "Land Of Snows" Meets The "Big Sky": A Study Of The Tibetan-U.S. Resettlement Project In Montana, Brandy Farnsworth Apr 1994

Where The "Land Of Snows" Meets The "Big Sky": A Study Of The Tibetan-U.S. Resettlement Project In Montana, Brandy Farnsworth

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

Leaving your country, family, and heritage, and stepping off an airplane into a foreign country can be an exciting, yet overwhelming, experience. One thousand Tibetan refugees have experienced this, as they entered the United States in 1990-1993. This was part of the Tibetan- U.S. Resettlement Project. The Tibetans have been placed in cluster communities around the United States, one of them being Missoula, Montana. The reasons for the development of the Resettlement Project can be explained by examining the history of Tibet. By looking at the past we are able to understand the difficulties the Tibetans have been experiencing ...


The Fsx Controversy: Is America Selling Out To Japan?, Chad Vanisko Apr 1994

The Fsx Controversy: Is America Selling Out To Japan?, Chad Vanisko

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

International competition has eroded the once commanding U.S. advantage in technology. It has caused a shift in government and business relationships in the United States and raised fundamental questions about the conduct of American foreign policy. Both the public and the private sectors are increasingly concerned with a new set of technological issues related to industrial competitiveness. This concern has forced a reassessment of national priorities and caused both industry and government to rethink their traditional roles in the development and application of technology. The implications for foreign policy stem from one overriding fact: when it comes to advanced ...


Military Culture And Inadvertent Escalation In World War Ii, Jeffrey W. Legro Apr 1994

Military Culture And Inadvertent Escalation In World War Ii, Jeffrey W. Legro

Political Science Faculty Publications

How can the use of "unthinkable" means of warfare be avoided? How can states successfully observe mutually desired limitations on "taboo" forms of combat? These questions are important because of concern that nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and terrorism will spread and be used. The growing number of states--e.g., Israel, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Ukraine--that have such means of inflicting harm increases the likelihood that any future conflict will involve a desire for restrictions. Countries may pursue restraint because popular opinion vilifies certain weapons; because leaders calculate that escalation would damage their domestic and international political support; or because ...

Policy Perspectives And Future Directions: A View From A Former U.S. Trade Representative, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1994

Policy Perspectives And Future Directions: A View From A Former U.S. Trade Representative, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

Tom Donahue expressed very well where we as a nation and we as a world should go on the worker rights issue. I'm going to spend most of my time focusing on how we get there, if we really want to accomplish something. Many countries would prefer not to have worker rights in the GATT at all. When we went to Punta del Este in 1986 to begin the Uruguay Round, the United States was a minority of one in trying to get the worker rights issue on the agenda in any way, shape, or form.

Conflict And War In The Middle-East, 1967-1991: Regional Dynamic And The Superpowers, Steve Yetiv Jan 1994

Conflict And War In The Middle-East, 1967-1991: Regional Dynamic And The Superpowers, Steve Yetiv

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

The two books under review here take substantially different approaches to Middle East politics. 'the first book attempts to examine the region by use of theory as well as empirics, whereas the second is primarily empirical in nature. The latter explains Middle East politics primarily from the regional perspective, and in particular, from Iran's vantage point, whereas the former places regional politics within the broader context of world politics.

Yemen: Human Rights In Yemen During And After The 1994 War, Sheila Carapico, Jermera Rone

Political Science Faculty Publications

During seventy days of conventional warfare between the government forces commanded by the Republic of Yemen Council President, General ’Ali ’Abdallah Salih, and the separatist southern army fighting in the name of the Yemeni Socialist Party (YSP), the government army won a military victory over the rebels and presided over the destruction of institutions and property of the former YSP-ruled People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen. The terms of national unity between the two Yemens, never fully resolved in either the May 1990 accord or elections in April 1993, were thus settled on the battlefield in favor of Salih’s ...


Becoming A Dove: Senator Claiborne Pell's Opposition To The Vietnam War, Kevin C. Klyberg Jan 1994

Becoming A Dove: Senator Claiborne Pell's Opposition To The Vietnam War, Kevin C. Klyberg

Master's Theses

This study examines the opposition of Senator Claiborne de Borda Pell to the Vietnam War and his role as a member of the United States Senate’s anti-war movement. Pell’s speeches, Senate statements, and correspondence reveal his criticism of the Vietnam policies of Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon and his attempts to alter them. Also, this study traces the influences which shaped Pell’s decisions, including his own experience in the United States Foreign Service, his theory about the forming of foreign policy, the opinions of his Rhode Island constituents, and his relationship with other Senate "Doves" who ...

A Tripolar World? A Framework For Analysis, Heidi J. Bachert-Burke Jan 1994

A Tripolar World? A Framework For Analysis, Heidi J. Bachert-Burke

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

The complex changes which are now under way have sparked a great deal of interest and speculation around possible world order, futures and the U.S.' relationship to them. The predominant image of the New World Order is one which hinges on the development of a liberal, economic multipolar world order in which mutual responsibility and macro-policy coordination become effective means of global management. Indeed this perspective is prone to see the possibility for change through peaceful and harmonious means. In as much as advocates of Interdependency Theory try to anticipate, explore and systematize, they seem to override a very ...
