  • Introduction
    • Abstract: As a new administration takes office in the United States in January 2017, it will need to formulate policies to address a wide range of challenges in Asia. China continues to rise in terms of both material and economic power, causing the Sino-U.S. relationship to become increasingly competitive even as the two countries cooperate on issues such as climate change. U.S. allies Japan and South Korea worry about the growing nuclear threat from North Korea and question Washington’s continued commitment to the region, while relations between Taiwan and China have worsened since the election of Tsai Ing-wen in January 2016. In Southeast Asia, territorial disputes in the South China Sea are escalating as countries take ... Read More

  • Dealing with China: Tough Engagement and Managed Competition
    • Abstract: Sino-American relations are the major overarching factor in Asian international relations (many would argue internationally). As the broad trajectory of the relationship in recent years has been toward increasing frictions and comprehensive competition, simply managing the competitive dynamic so that it does not bleed into a fully adversarial relationship should be a principal goal. The relationship could get worse—much worse—but that is not in the national interests of either country.Building cooperation where possible is a twin objective but should not be an end in itself. For example, the two governments engage in nearly one hundred bilateral dialogues, but these exchanges are quite pro forma and yield limited ... Read More

  • U.S.-Japan Relations in a Trump Administration
    • Abstract: Donald Trump shocked many in Japan during his presidential campaign. Trump suggested in a New York Times interview that Japan and South Korea should develop their own nuclear weapons to contend with North Korea, stating that “if we’re attacked, they do not have to come to our defense, if they’re attacked, we have to come totally to their defense. And…that’s a real problem.”1 On the campaign trail, he repeatedly returned to the topic of Japan to note the lack of reciprocity in the security relationship. At a rally in Iowa on August 6, Trump claimed he was told that Japan pays 50% of the costs of basing U.S. troops there, but he then asked, “Why don’t they pay 100%?”2These assertions, however, may have little to do ...

  • Hazards on the Road Ahead: The United States and the Korean Peninsula
    • Abstract: In important ways, U.S. relations with the Korean Peninsula have been frozen in amber since the end of the George W. Bush administration. President Barack Obama did not try to revive the failed six-party talks. Instead, he cooperated with a friendly conservative government in Seoul—first under President Lee Myung-bak, then under President Park Geun-hye—both to strengthen sanctions on North Korea and to improve alliance and defense coordination among the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK), and Japan. This resulted in Seoul’s decision to deploy the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system and to share military intelligence with Tokyo. It did not, however, stop Kim Jong-un from ... Read More

  • U.S.-Taiwan Relations in the Trump Administration: No Big Fixes Needed
    • Abstract: As the Obama administration officials hand off Asia policy to Donald Trump and his team, one success story is the relationship with Taiwan. Through concerted efforts and in spite of very occasional difficulties, Washington and Taipei have broadened and deepened their bilateral ties over the last eight years. The two governments are working, in the words of one U.S. official, “to build a comprehensive, durable, and mutually beneficial partnership.”1 Going forward, continuity, not reinvention, is the most sensible path. A rift is not impossible, but if it occurs, it will be because a deterioration in Taiwan-China relations drives a wedge between Washington and Taipei. That has happened before, but it need not happen ... Read More

  • Trump and Putin, Through a Glass Darkly
    • Abstract: As 2017 dawns, relations between the United States and Russia are at their worst level since the height of the Cold War. Russia has been under U.S. sanctions since it seized Crimea and intervened in eastern Ukraine in 2014, and new sanctions were added after U.S. intelligence agencies determined that Russia was responsible for hacking and publicizing emails from the Democratic National Committee and other political actors during the 2016 elections. In recent years, the number of dangerous military incidents between the two countries has skyrocketed, as the Russian military seems determined to test U.S. readiness by provoking hazardous close encounters in the air and at sea. Russia has built up military forces and ... Read More

  • Avoiding the Labors of Sisyphus: Strengthening U.S.-India Relations in a
           Trump Administration
    • Abstract: For close to two decades now, the transformation of U.S.-India relations has been a bipartisan project in Washington. It has also been uniquely successful, as alternating Republican and Democratic administrations have worked with governments led by both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress Party to exorcise the ghosts of old corrosive Cold War disagreements. As a result, the United States and India, once sharply divided by the issues of alliances and alignment, today routinely declare their commitment to a durable strategic partnership.Former Indian prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, arguably the progenitor of the new collaboration, once boldly declared the United States and India to be “natural allies.”1 ...

  • Pakistan and the United States: A More Turbulent Ride?
    • Abstract: The news following Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in the U.S. presidential election has provided a steady dose of drama to the often turbulent U.S.-Pakistan relationship. During the campaign, Trump promised to clamp down on “radical Islamic terrorism” and proposed a total ban on Muslims entering the United States, later scaling this back to “extreme vetting.”1 Three weeks after the election came the phone conversation between Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Trump. The Pakistani government’s press release described the conversation as an effusive exchange, with Trump quoted as saying “you are a terrific guy” and that Pakistanis are “one of the most intelligent people.”2 The Pakistani account also ...

  • U.S.–Southeast Asia Relations: Raised Stakes and Renewed Importance
    • Abstract: Southeast Asia’s profile has risen dramatically in U.S. foreign policy circles in recent years. After the United States drifted away from the region following the end of its involvement in Vietnam in 1975, U.S. attention began to return in the early days of the George W. Bush administration, although at that time largely in the context of President Bush’s global war on terrorism. Toward the end of the Bush years, Washington began to wake up to the broader importance of the region as a hub of global growth and as an arena where competition for the future shape of Asia would take place in the context of China’s rising regional influence. In 2007 the Bush administration sent a strong signal of U.S. interest in ... Read More

  • The U.S.-Australia Alliance in an Era of Change: Living Complacently?
    • Abstract: U.S. primacy is both a strategic choice and an empirical condition, and thus analysis regarding the future of U.S. primacy should focus on both ideational (i.e., policy choices) and material variables (i.e., relativities of power).1 We are now witnessing significant shifts in the realms of U.S. primacy that carry great weight for Australia. In material terms, while the United States remains dominant across a range of measures (e.g., military spending),2 it has faced with growing intensity the great challenge of all hegemonic powers—managing never-ceasing political and military commitments and maintaining the economic capability to meet them.3 The Obama administration has attempted to grapple with this central ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: In 2016, North Korea successfully completed its fourth and fifth nuclear weapon tests and redoubled its efforts to develop a credible delivery system. The Kim Jong-un regime thus appears committed to continuing the byungjin (parallel development) policy that has made the pursuit of nuclear weapons a cornerstone of North Korea’s national security strategy. Most analysts believe that the country currently possesses 10–16 nuclear weapons and, under low to moderate growth estimates, could develop 20–50 weapons by 2020. Statements by Kim in early 2017 indicate a persistent drive to couple these weapons with fully operational ballistic missile systems that can directly threaten the U.S. mainland in addition to U.S. ...

  • Managing North Korean Nuclear Threats: In Defense of Dialogue and
           Negotiations
    • Abstract: Inter-Korean relations have hit rock bottom. Since President Park Geun-hye’s inauguration in February 2013, her government pursued the Trust-Building Process on the Korean Peninsula initiative and tried to improve ties with North Korea. But such efforts have failed, and inter-Korean relations have worsened.1 After North Korea’s fourth nuclear test in January 2016, the Park government adopted a much tougher stance by closing the Kaesong industrial complex and completely suspending inter-Korean exchanges and cooperation. Seoul and Washington have also intensified joint military exercises and training on deploying strategic weapons. Pyongyang responded to these moves by conducting numerous missile test launches and by ... Read More

  • Old Wine in a New Bottle?: China’s Korea Problem
    • Abstract: China’s dealings with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) have not been easy, not even during the Korean War in which the two fought side by side. The relationship has experienced many ups and downs over the years. Most recently, the nuclear tests by North Korea and the United States’ planned deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea have forced China to rethink its policy toward North Korea.This essay will analyze the recent interactions between China and the DPRK and examine the factors that prompted China to adopt a tougher stance toward Pyongyang. However, this policy change has been complicated and mitigated by the United States’ decision to deploy THAAD ... Read More

  • Acting on the North Korea Playbook: Japan’s Responses to North
           Korea’s Provocations
    • Abstract: In 2009, when a series of nuclear and missile tests conducted by North Korea led some analysts to argue that Pyongyang had abandoned diplomacy and aimed to reunify the Korean Peninsula militarily, a highly respected North Korea watcher, Narushige Michishita, opined that Pyongyang was still “playing the same game.”1 While North Korea has continued to upgrade its nuclear and missile capabilities since then, Japan has ironically developed its own playbook on how to respond to Pyongyang’s repeated provocations. Tokyo’s responses to Pyongyang’s defiant actions in 2016 are faithfully based on this playbook: seeking enhanced sanctions, ensuring U.S. extended nuclear deterrence, and enhancing security cooperation with ...

  • Deterring a Nuclear-Armed Adversary in a Contested Regional Order: The
           “Trilemma” of U.S.–North Korea Relations
    • Abstract: North Korea’s dogged pursuit of a nuclear and ballistic missile capability has never been the sole reason for its confrontational relationship with the United States. The issue sits at the intersection of multiple narratives about where North Korea fits in U.S. strategy toward Asia. From the U.S. perspective, North Korea is a deterrence challenge, a proliferation threat, and a dangerous wildcard in the increasingly contested regional order. Each of these views of North Korea implies different policy priorities, and each favors different ways of addressing the North Korean nuclear threat. The degree to which U.S. policy emphasizes different tools of statecraft depends on how each of these three narratives defines ... Read More

  • Why Nothing Can Really Be Done about North Korea’s Nuclear Program
    • Abstract: If one were asked to describe the worldview of the North Korean political elites, it could be done in a single word: they are “hyperrealists.” Their idea of how international relations are structured agrees extremely well with the prescriptions of the realist school (of whose existence most of them seem blissfully unaware), and in many cases they take this school’s ideas to its logical extremes. This has been the case for well over half a century. This hyperrealism is how a small group of North Korean hereditary elites have managed to stay in power against seemingly impossible odds since the late 1950s. In that time, North Korea has survived the Sino-Soviet quarrel of the 1960–80s, long-term economic decline, the ... Read More

  • Japan’s Coast Guard and Maritime Self-Defense Force in the East China
           Sea: Can a Black-and-White System Adapt to a Gray-Zone Reality?
    • Abstract: This essay examines the need for growing coordination between the Japan Coast Guard (JCG) and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) to better cope with gray-zone situations.Coping with gray-zone situations is particularly challenging for Japan because its security posture is based on a binary system that complicates coordination between civilian and military agencies. In Japan, gray-zone situations generally refer to the challenges raised by China’s maritime activities around the disputed Senkaku Islands, creating situations that are neither peacetime nor wartime contingencies. Dealing with such situations requires careful and close management of law-enforcement contingencies that might escalate into ... Read More

  • The Failure of Maritime Sanctions Enforcement against North Korea
    • Abstract: This article examines the ineffectiveness of current sanctions on marine traffic into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) by identifying four weaknesses that allow traffic there to continue: flags of convenience, misidentification or false registration, offshore ownership, and shell-firm owners, managers, and insurers.Based on a review of automatic identification system data tracking approximately 70 vessels that entered DPRK ports between April 2016 and October 2016, current sanctions on North Korea do not appear to be impeding marine traffic into the country. The majority of marine traffic into the DPRK during this period was from Chinese ports by vessels flagged by several countries in Africa, the ... Read More

  • China’s Crony Capitalism: More Than Property Rights
    • Abstract: Minxin Pei’s excellent new book China’s Crony Capitalism: The Dynamics of Regime Decay makes several important contributions to the fields of China studies, political economy, and comparative politics. It invigorates the debates about the viability of China’s model of economic development and political system, develops a host of analytical concepts and tools for the study of crony capitalism, and provides a comprehensive and well-documented analysis of the evolution and nature of China’s crony capitalism in the post-Tiananmen era.Each of these contributions deserves further elaboration and acclamation, but for the purposes of this review, it would be more useful to critically assess Pei’s arguments. The core ... Read More

  • China Is Corrupt, but There Is More to the Story
    • Abstract: Minxin Pei’s China’s Crony Capitalism: The Dynamics of Regime Decay is a major contribution, likely to significantly influence discussions about China and its future. He argues that China’s political economy is characterized by crony capitalism, manifest in collusion between political and business elites, leading to the fundamental decay of China’s Leninist system in its late stages. Moreover, the legacy of crony capitalism bodes poorly for a post-Leninist democratic regime in China.There is much in this work with which I agree. Yet I have some major areas of disagreement as well. Pei uses a principal-agent framework to make his argument. In this framework, he sees lower-level officials (agents) unresponsive to the ...

  • A Partial View of China’s Governance Trajectory
    • Abstract: Minxin Pei’s new book China’s Crony Capitalism: The Dynamics of Regime Decay recites in detail the morass of corruption and collusion in which the People’s Republic of China (PRC) party-state finds itself. Encyclopedic in scope, the book addresses corruption, extraction, and network formation in many of modern China’s formal settings—including in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the nomenklatura system, state institutions, enterprises, the investment sector, and the real property market, among others—but also in nonformal contexts such as the rise of the “local mafia state.” The book’s basic storyline is this: the PRC’s radical devolution of intertwined political power and governance authority over productive ...

In the space below, I respond to three main concerns about China’s Crony Capitalism: The Dynamics of Regime Decay raised in their reviews: (1) theoretical framework and arguments, (2) empirical evidence and interpretation, and (3) implications of the findings.The book’s main theoretical contribution is to offer an institutional explanation for the emergence of a particular type of corruption—collusive corruption perpetuated mainly to enable political and business elites to loot nominally state-owned assets at steep discounts or no cost. It traces the ... Read More
