Conflict Emergence And Escalation In Interactive International Dyads, David Todd Kinsella, Bruce M. Russett Nov 2002

Conflict Emergence And Escalation In Interactive International Dyads, David Todd Kinsella, Bruce M. Russett

Political Science Faculty Publications and Presentations

We examine whether the conditions affecting initial expressions of hostility are similar to those affecting militarized disputes. Analyzing dyadic interactions during the years 1951–1992, we estimate a model to take into account selection effects and check it against another allowing conjunctive causation. Both provide close approximations to theoretical models of the conflict process and yield similar results. We confirm Kant’s belief that all states are subject to the realist conditions of interstate competition that makes disputes likely, but that liberal influences, if present, can constrain the escalation of such disputes to war. Several influences on the conflict process ...

Trends. If You're So Right, Why Are We Sure You're So Wrong? Iraq, Free Riders, And Social Loafing, Editor Oct 2002

Trends. If You're So Right, Why Are We Sure You're So Wrong? Iraq, Free Riders, And Social Loafing, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

This Trends article discusses and evaluates public discourse surrounding the acceptability of militarily invading Iraq through a social psychological perspective. In social psychology, the research tradition for constructs such as free-riding and social loafing suggests that, wittingly or unwittingly, many political actors assume that the United States will act to address actual political threats in a certain way, and that they (the other political actors) can adopt contrarian ideological stances because they don’t have to address those same threats.

The Chen Shui-Bian Administrations Mainland Policy: Toward A Modus Vivendi Or Continued Stalemate?, Vincent Wei-Cheng Wang

Politics Faculty Publications and Presentations

This article discusses the main elements of the Chen Shui-bian administration's cross-Strait policy, analyzes the policy's key domestic and international determinants, and offers a preliminary assessment on the policy.

Although Chen has accelerated his political maturation, his China policy continues to be constrained by various factors ...

Competition Policy In East Asia : The Cases Of Japan, People's Republic Of China, And Hong Kong, Ping Lin Sep 2002

Competition Policy In East Asia : The Cases Of Japan, People's Republic Of China, And Hong Kong, Ping Lin

CAPS Working Paper Series

This paper describes and evaluates the competition policies in Japan, China, and Hong Kong. A simple framework based on the economic incentive of violations of law is used to evaluate the effectiveness of competition policy. After half a century of effort, Japan has finally established of a modern antitrust system, although its surcharge system could be further improved so as to enhance the deterrence effect of the law.

A Foundation For Democratic Transition: The Evolution Of Korean Civil Society 1972-1987, Sukhee Lee Aug 2002

A Foundation For Democratic Transition: The Evolution Of Korean Civil Society 1972-1987, Sukhee Lee

Dissertations

This dissertation seeks to explain the evolutionary process of Korean civil society throughout the 1970s and 1980s as a foundation for democratization. I argue that the changing character of civil society in the mid-1980s was a necessary condition for democratic transition in 1987. Thus, this study focuses on how an ineffective civil society became sufficiently effective to be a deciding factor in Korea’s democratic transition, and seeks to define what factors led to the change. In the process of development of civil society, several factors, such as political culture, economic development, political opportunity structure, and the external environment, affected ...

On the first day of the NATO air campaign against Serbian forces in Kosovo in March 1999, President Clinton addressed the American people and justified American participation in those air strikes by asserting that "we are upholding our values, protecting our interests and advancing the cause of peace."1 The United States, Clinton declared, was acting out of a "moral imperative" to help the people of Kosovo, but he also justified American actions as an effort to defend its "national interest" by preventing the conflict from spreading into the rest of Europe and by demonstrating the effectiveness of the NATO ...

Overcoming The Dysfunction Of The Bifurcated Global System: The Promise Of A Peoples Assembly, Andrew L. Strauss Jun 2002

Overcoming The Dysfunction Of The Bifurcated Global System: The Promise Of A Peoples Assembly, Andrew L. Strauss

School of Law Faculty Publications

Richard Falk and I have proposed that the time is ripe for global civil society to take the lead and initiate a popularly representative Global Peoples Assembly (GPA).1 The tremendous growth in the commitment to, and practice of, democracy in domestic settings2 juxtaposed against globalization's large-scale transfer of political decision making to international institutions3 has made the almost complete lack of democracy at the international level the most glaring anomaly of the global system today.

Because states are unlikely to initiate the democratization of the international order, the task of beginning the drive for the first GPA necessarily ...
