  • How Could a Global Ethic Be Grounded on a Religious Foundation'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Through a case analysis of Christianity and Confucianism, this essay argues that if the world’s religions genuinely hope to establish a global ethic by jointly affirming some irrevocable and unconditional ethical directives, each on the basis of their own religious grounds, they should trust in their specific ultimate realities in a universalistic way instead of in a particularistic way; that is, they may not place these ultimate realities above the bottom-line moral principle “respecting everyone’s deserved rights” absolutely, but must assign a prior position to the latter and integrate it with their trust in their specific ultimate realities through a critical self-transformation.

  • A Bibliometric Analysis of Wicked Problems: From Single Discipline to
           Transdisciplinarity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With the increase of social complexity and uncertainty, wicked problems have become the hot and difficult issues in the frontier research of public policy. The concept of wicked problems was proposed in the 1960s. Since then, it has gradually spread to many disciplines, such as environment, urban planning, public policy, etc. A comprehensive understanding of the research progress of the transdisciplinary method is an important way to understand wicked problems. This paper uses Citespace5.5, based on bibliometrics and visual analysis techniques, to analyze 800 academic publications related to wicked problems and visually display the transdisciplinarity knowledge map and information panorama of wicked problems. Through a multi-level descriptive analysis of key literature, research origin, research hotspots and trend of the research on wicked problems, this paper finds out the law of knowledge growth and internal evolution logic of the research on wicked problems, and concludes that the transdisciplinarity research of wicked problems is forming, which shows the rule from knowledge diffusion (single discipline) to knowledge coherence (transdisciplinarity). The discipline of public policy has the potential to change the knowledge constraints of a single discipline and may offer transdisciplinarity approaches to wicked problems.

  • Alternative Order Without Alternative Norms'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Chinese government, especially under President Xi Jinping, is willing to propose an alternative to the existing US-led international order. Accordingly, new or alternative understandings of and approaches to the international order that are more finely attuned to China are increasingly sought, and it is therefore not surprising that the Chinese International Relations (IR) community is attempting to establish the conceptual or theoretical sources and normative rationales for an alternative international order by developing indigenous IR theories that reflect “Chinese characteristics”. However, whether China is able to define and actualise a “new normal” in international relations—whether, that is, it can have and exercise “normative power”—is contingent on the recognition of Chinese discourses of that alternative by other actors. A key question, then, is: if and to what extent are Chinese alternatives recognised beyond China' I address this question, with a focus on the issue of knowledge transmission and sharing in three large East Asian IR communities. More specifically, I analyse their conceptual, theoretical, and epistemological orientations. I also compare the orientations with American IR scholarship, using various forms of evidence, including the most recent Teaching, Research, and International Policy survey data.

  • Legal Coordination of Conflicts of Interests among Stakeholders in the
           Processing of Personal Data

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The processing of personal data involves various stakeholders, such as natural persons, personal data processors, and supervisors. These stakeholders process or supervise personal data based on their respective interests or duties. However, because several interests are involved, conflicts may occur due to the value of the data in question. This paper builds a theoretical framework based on the methodology of interest measurement to alleviate conflicts of interest concerning data. It explores, from the perspectives of rights, obligations, and liabilities, the supervisors’ duty of protecting the public interest. Regarding personal data of natural persons, corresponding rights are allocated according to the relevant provisions of the Civil Code and the Personal Information Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China. For personal data processors in superior positions, obligations and liabilities are allocated according to the relevant provisions of the above laws, and in light of the core of reasonable restrictions on individual standards against society’s standards, the duties of supervisors and protection of public interests are clearly defined.

  • ‘All Solid Things Vanish Into Thin Air.’ The Space in Modern
           and Late Modern Plastic Art

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The article follows Max Weber's Comprehensive Sociology and uses the hermeneutic and iconological analysis sociological methods applied to plastic works (painting and sculpture), significant and representative of modern and late modern art. Starting from these theoretical and methodological bases, it pursues three specific objectives: to analyze the construction of space in plastic art, to verify how this theme has evolved in artistic practices from the first modernity to the second and to verify the way in which the complementary visual language the conceptual of contemporary sociological theory. In this regard, the analysis and interpretation of the eleven selected works reveals three important consequences of the modern influence on space, gradually emptied of meaning and replaced by non-places: its conversion into merchandise, its loss of solidity and stability and the confusion that occurs in it between reality and its representation. Consequently, the implicit content converges with the essential postulates of the sociologists who have approached the subject of space, although it goes further because the foray into the iconographic hermeneutics of these works puts an image to the conceptual theoretical discourses of the sociologists, in a way that visual language complements and enriches, with more emotional and sensitive nuances. Therefore, our discipline begins to overcome a traditional deficit, in that it moves from the essential rationality that structures its origin and turns towards a greater coupling of the emotional and sensitive social plane.

  • Determinants of Tax Evasion Intention using the Theory of Planned Behavior
           and the Mediation role of Taxpayer Egoism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study evaluates the mediation role of taxpayer egoism in the nexus between tax evasion intention (TEI) and its determinants. TEI is measured as a composite variable (for mediation in the PROCESS macro) and then as a latent variable (for mediation in Analysis of Moment Structure Software—AMOS). Further, the stringent assumptions of mediation analysis by Baron and Kenny (Strategic, and Statistical Considerations 51:1173–1182, 1986) are challenged via assertions by Hayes (Introduction to Mediation, Moderation and Conditional Process Analysis: A Regression-Based Approach, The Guilford Press, 2018). The proxies for TEI are the respondents’ ethical attitudes toward taxation. Determinants of tax evasion intention are grouped into perceived behavioral control, attitude and subjective norms as per theory of planned behavior (TPB) and extant literature. The detailed variables adopted from the literature include tax awareness, tax information, tax complexity, perceived power of authority, tax morals, tax fairness, and trust in government. A total of 151 responses were collected. Mediation analysis was done via bootstrapping in the PROCESS macro and through AMOS. A plethora of studies focus on determinants of tax evasion, tax compliance and their intentions. However, none combine analysis via the two tools highlighted. Further, few challenge the old way of conducting mediation analysis. The data provide statistical support for egoism’s mediation in the effect of four determinants on tax evasion intention. It further confirms that many of the old preconditions for mediation are unnecessary given modern-day bootstrapping analysis. Insight into determinants of TEI and egoism have been provided. However, this study uses cross-sectional data. Future studies must use longitudinal data or experimental manipulation to infer more specific effects.

  • The Developmental Sources of South Korean Neoliberalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract How do South Korea’s developmental legacies influence its contemporary political economy' The discourse surrounding this question has tended to diverge over the extent to which South Korea’s state-led developmental model has been supplanted by a market-led, neoliberal mode of political-economic organization. Though this debate has indeed fostered many important individual contributions, it has also yielded a muddled and ambiguous theoretical landscape. To clarify this cluttered terrain, this paper draws from recent advances in the study of neoliberalism to establish critical points of consonance between statist perspectives on Korean development and neoliberalism. To this end, it identifies key threads of continuity binding South Korea’s developmental past with its neoliberal present. The paper finds that critical aspects of the developmental state’s interaction with society, from coercion to ideological suasion, furnished elemental building blocks to those actively constructing a South Korean neoliberalism. Thus, exploring these historical contours produces a fresh means for apprehending the interactions of enduring statist developmental legacies with contemporary neoliberal reforms, both theoretically and empirically. As such, this study yields an improved set of conceptual tools for grasping the complex empirical phenomena shaping the interplay of neoliberalism, developmentalism, and democracy within contemporary South Korea.

  • Tourism Development and Well-Being: The Role of Population and Political
           Stability

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study's primary purpose was to explore the role of tourism development in enhancing well-being in a highly populated developing economy by focusing on the case study of Pakistan. Several econometric techniques and approaches were used on annual time series data covering the 1990–2016 period to investigate the causal relationship of well-being with tourism development, political stability, economics, and population growth. The findings suggested that tourism development enhances economic growth and well-being, hence providing support for the tourism-led growth hypothesis. However, population growth and political instability exhibited a negative relationship with well-being; in addition, the level of political stability determined tourism activities. Hence, this study is unique due to its specific focus on the role of political stability and tourism development in the enhancement of well-being in a highly populated developing economy. Moreover, the practical implications of the study have been provided in light of the main findings.

  • China as a Responsible Power Amid the COVID-19 Crisis: Perceptions of
           Partners and Adversaries on Twitter

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The challenging COVID-19 context has questioned China’s role as a responsible power but also tested its relationship with other states. This study seeks to investigate ‘How other actors have perceived China’s role as a responsible power amid the COVID-19 crisis’. To do so, we opt for a qualitative approach examining the official Twitter accounts of seven actors that hold different types of relationships with China, namely Brazil, EU, Japan, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, and the USA. We aim to identify the perceptions of these actors towards China as unfolding from January to June 2020, emphasising the empirical applicability of Twitter’s discourse. By adopting the concept of responsible power approached from a Role Theory perspective, this paper contributes to a more nuanced understanding of interstate relations and role perceptions. Our findings indicate that there have been variations in the responses and perceptions other states have expressed towards China while its framing as a responsible power differs significantly during the crisis and its landmark events.

  • A Genealogical Study of Facemasks in China: From Hygienic Modernity to
           Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Despite the omnipresence of facemasks in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, recent studies on their sociopolitical aspects remain insufficient. This article conducts a genealogical study that investigates the emergence of two differing masking strategies in two epidemic events in Chinese history. First, during the Manchurian plague 1910/11, it shows how the germ theory and historical anecdotes made anti-plague masks thinkable and practicable as a solution not only for airborne contagion but also for the biopolitical problem of ‘unhygienic’ population. In the second part, the analytical focus is shifted to the emergence of collective mask-wearing practices during SARS 2002/03 from the vantage point of subjectification. Facemasks then became a symbol of care in the neoliberal regime of responsibilization. This article concludes by arguing for a rethinking of facemasks as actants who actively participate in the constitution of the world we share.

  • Marxism, U.S. Democracy, and Lenin’s Commune Against Capitalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his 2016 essay “An American Utopia,” Fredric Jameson appropriates Lenin’s concept of “dual power” to ruminate on its potential meaning in the present U.S. context. Jameson’s remarks on “dual power” and U.S. politics offer a starting point to explore both the most recent developments in the U.S. and to revisit Lenin’s State and Revolution fruitfully to review the concept of “the commune” as a post-capitalist political theory. Lenin’s work transcends anodyne demands for abstract democracy. Indeed, my intervention aims to explore the limits of “democracy” in U.S. political discourse, demanding a reconsideration of Leninist political theory. In so doing, the conditions of struggle in the U.S. potentialize the dialectical development of struggles to extend democracy (reform) with struggles to overcome democracy (revolution).

  • Self-Discovery and a Sense of Wholeness in the Transgressive
           Auto/biogrAfrical Discourses of African American Women Writers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The paper attempts to explore selected African American women writers’ (Zora Neale Hurston, Maya Angelou, Audre Lorde, and Alice Walker) self-discovery, celebration of their selfhood, and sense of wholeness in their auto/biogrAfrical discourses. Instrumental rhetoricity of the autobiographers reflects politicization of black women’s struggle, cultural (de)construction, and feminist/womanist (re)construction. Instead of fitting into heteronormative discourses and a process of cultural assimilation, and of adhering to cultural codes of femininity, these writers transgress traditional norms of behavior. Through autobiographical manifestos interwoven with self-defining identity and artistic transgression, they powerfully assert notions of collective female agency and embrace their new-found identity as feminist/womanist/queer. As an agent of awareness and proclamation, their (except Hurston’s) powerful rhetoric is infused with their triple consciousness of being a black woman with African background and cultural pride. They illustrate an interconnectedness of racism and sexism which causes double oppression on black women. They boldly raise racial issues of universal significance, stick to their authentic selves, and reaffirm their agonizing black history/past as they journey toward maturity and wholeness. Their discourses reflect an interweaving of past and present, individual and community, and personal and political changes which lead them toward an esthetic paradigm of wholeness.

  • Atomism, Communitarianism, and Confucian Familism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Charles Taylor criticizes many liberal theories based on a kind of atomism that assumes the individual self-sufficiency outside the polity. This not only causes soft-relativism and political fragmentation but also undermines the solidarity of the community, that is, the very condition of the formation of autonomous citizens. Taylor thus argues for communitarian politics which protects certain cultural common goods for sustaining the solidarity of the community. However, Brenda Lyshaug criticizes Taylor’s communitarianism as suppressing plurality and enhancing hostility among cultural groups. In the face of such controversies, I argue for modern Confucian familism which emphasizes the family as a common good that provides a safe, stable, and nurturing environment for nurturing children and cultivating civility for future generations with a sense of community and autonomy. I also defend Confucian familism from four possible criticisms: insufficiency of familism, hierarchical relationship in the family, the danger of nepotism, and challenge from postmodern families. I argue that unlike traditional Confucianism, modern moderation of the Confucian family can greatly reduce the hierarchical problem; its emphasis on the family as one of the foundations of politics can avoid the danger of being atomistic liberalism and suppressive communitarianism.

  • Global Justice and the Motivation to Give

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Cosmopolitans, statists and liberal nationalists disagree over the relevance of regulating substantive inequalities at the global level. This paper aims to resolve the dispute among these three schools of thought. I show firstly that cosmopolitans, statists, and liberal nationalists all aim to motivate people to give in support of distributive justice at the global level. However, cosmopolitans lack a substantive theory of how to develop sufficient motivation to give globally. Secondly, the statists’ account of the motivation to give is deficient because it fails to recognise the motivational force of a common national identity among people. Thirdly, Miller’s account is more plausible than the statists’ but fails to facilitate a dynamic process whereby people’s national identities could be extended to the global level in order to support the cosmopolitan project. This needs to be supplemented by the statists’ understanding of democratic process—one which incorporates the principles of Habermas’s communicative action as a mechanism for developing social solidarity among people. I endorse an account that recognises the motivational force of national identity and the possibility of extending it beyond nation state through democratic participation at the global level.

  • Exploring the Technical Assessment Standards for “Ordinary
           Purposes” in the CISG

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Standards are the scientific basis and an important factor for the assessment of the quality of goods. In International Sale of Goods Law, they are consistent with and complementary to the “general provision” on “ordinary purposes” used to assess the quality of goods. Based on analyses of theories and legal practices and by reviewing the relationship between standards and “ordinary purposes,” in this article, I attempt to find out what standards affect the ascertaining of “ordinary purposes” and present a summary of the preconditions for the sellers’ obligatory observance of such standards to provide guidance for the accurate application of other “general provisions” through the use of standards.

  • The Anti-corruption Discourse of China: Cracking down on
           “Tigers”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Fighting corruption has been a signature theme in the governance of China since Xi Jinping became General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CCCPC) in 2012. Among the extensive attention from academic and policy discourse to this unprecedented anti-corruption effort in CPC’s history, there are studies that take the one-sided view that the effort under way is not anti-corruption in its strict sense as it relies on the Party mechanism rather than the legal system, scripted, and calculated for the narrow self-interest of factional power enhancement. Reviewing contemporary fundamental anti-corruption discourses, anchored in critical discourse analysis, and assisted by 134 circulars of intra-Party disciplinary punishments of corrupt high-ranking officials (“tigers”, dalaohu), this interdisciplinary study reveals that, by contrast, China adopts an integrated approach to corruption, which incorporates republican and liberal-rationalist beliefs and values. Specifically, it is characterized by CCCPC as leadership, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection as political agency, both following a mentality of the rule of law, and by the coordination between intra-Party disciplinary rules and state laws. This approach is appropriate because it conceptualizes corruption by targeting the main feature of the corruption-related problem. This study contributes from a discoursal perspective to the understanding of China’s anti-corruption in the Xi Jinping Era.

  • Allocating Personal Data Rights: Toward Resolving Conflicts of Interest
           over Personal Data

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Conflicts of interest over personal data arise from the variety of legal subjects involved and the value of personal data in today’s information society. This article attempts to resolve such conflicts of interest by examining the possibility of allocating data rights which balance competing interests. It suggests that the allocation of personal data rights should follow certain rules to ensure that the interests of relevant data subjects are protected. By examining the reasons for conflicts of interest over personal data, as well as the subjects and substance of such conflicts, the article puts forward an appropriate approach for allocating personal data rights by balancing the interests of different data subjects. For source data subjects, personal data rights are allocated, to protect personal information and data property interests; for data controllers, data property rights are allocated to protect their data property interests when they make data valuable, meanwhile liabilities are allocated to data controller, in case of infringing on other subjects’ interests; for data supervisors (mostly the government), allocating the right to protect or make use of data on behalf of public interests and the power of supervising data use industry; for the data users, they are allocated data property rights with the consents of source data subjects and data controllers when make use of data.

  • Chinese Social History Studies: Development, Problems, and Solutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since its revival in the mid-1980s, the study of Chinese social history has enjoyed steady growth and prominence as an emerging field. Its development over the past three decades can be roughly divided into three stages. The first is the rejuvenation stage, when “social history” started to gain ground as a new branch of study and developed into regional and cultural histories. The second stage started around the 1990s when the study of “new social history” arose to break away from the old paradigms and establish new approaches for a self-sustained branch of study. Due to its narrowly targeted narrative framework, obscure jargon, and exclusive rhetoric, it was later reduced to new historical research that focused on investigating concepts without due emphasis on revisiting the origin of the study. The third stage featured the rise of historical anthropology, which sprang up in the late 1990s and brought forth new ideas that spread across the country into the twentieth century with extensive influence. Hence, social history, “new social history,” and historical anthropology mark the three different yet connected stages in the development of Chinese social history studies. Each played a significant part in history with a lasting impact on the development of the field and issues raised for further inquiry.

  • The Coronavirus Pandemic: The Growing Relevance of Moral Cosmopolitan
           Justice'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The essay attempts to conceptualise the adverse repercussions of coronavirus in an unequal global order. The changing security regime has intensified the increased probabilities of potential non-conventional threats. The coronavirus has uncovered the unpleasant realities of the socio-economic and political structure of the global north encountering financial crises and lack of health care resources. Contradictorily, the Pandemic has pushed the developing countries into the realm of extreme poverty, destroyed their minimum living conditions with the marginal provision of financial assistance. The contemporary unequal scenario exposed the unequal treatment for different social and economic classes questioning the neo-liberal policy discourse. Therefore, the central theme of the essay is to understand the multidimensional underpinnings of the health crises and global inequality upholding the relevance of cosmopolitan justice, adopting an analytical and deductive methodology of driving conclusions from general premises.

  • Changes in International Student Mobility amid the COVID-19 Pandemic and
           Response in the China Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract International student mobility is an important indicator of the internationalization of higher education, and an important way to cultivate talents with global has had a huge impact on the mobility of international students. Specifically, the scale of international student mobility has decreased, changes in the geographic pattern of international student mobility have intensified, the form of international student mobility has changed, and the competition in the international study abroad market has intensified. As a major country that sends and receives international students, China has adopted a series of response measures to reduce the impact of the pandemic on international student mobility and has formulated a long-term development strategy to promote the mobility of international students. To promote international student mobility in the post-epidemic period, countries should provide support for international students from home and abroad, promote the diversification of international student mobility, and strengthen internationalization at home.
