  • Foreword To The Special Essay

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We live in a world of instant communication, where globalization is intensifying in the digital realm. Yet we also live in a world where "deglobalization" is gaining traction in some policy circles. Self-sourcing or sourcing supplies only from like-minded countries—improbably referred to as "friend-shoring"—is openly encouraged. But we cannot so easily delink the supply chains that hold up our integrated global economy. Moreover, deglobalization is a privilege that most communities around the world cannot afford.This Asia Policy special essay by Ali Wyne argues that the push for self-reliance is largely prompted by the world's two giants in economic might and rivalry. Described by Wyne as "perhaps the two greatest ... Read More

  • The U.S.-Japan Alliance and Taiwan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The past two years have witnessed a striking uptick of concerns among the United States and its major democratic allies that the People's Republic of China (PRC, or China) may use its increasingly powerful military to force unification with democratic and self-governed Taiwan (officially, the Republic of China [ROC]). In addition to the potential implications that any attempt by Beijing to achieve unification through military force or other coercive means would hold for Taiwan's democracy, status, and 24 million people, the Taiwan Strait is also widely considered "the most dangerous flash point in the world for a possible war that involved the United States of America, China, and probably other major powers."1 A ...

  • Middle-Power Alignment in the Free and Open Indo-Pacific: Securing Agency
           through Neo-Middle-Power Diplomacy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the 1990s, some international relations scholars argued that the term middle power does not solely refer to a state's size or its military or economic power; rather, middle powers are also defined "by the issue area where a state invests its resources and knowledge."1 This functional approach traditionally has exemplified the normative character of U.S.-aligned middle powers such as Australia, Canada, and arguably Japan in buttressing international institutions that focus on specific areas such as human rights, the environment, and arms regulations.2 The predictable, U.S.-led international order allowed middle powers to assume these roles.Today, the international order looks vastly different. The change in the ... Read More

           Proposals and Government Implementation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Russia's invasion of Ukraine sent shockwaves around the world. Russia—a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and possessor of nuclear weapons—conducted a military invasion of a sovereign country that was clearly not for self-defense. This attack was a particularly great shock to Japan, which has adopted a policy focused exclusively on self-defense since World War II, with Article 9 of its constitution renouncing war.Russia's invasion of Ukraine created so great a tremor in international affairs that it prompted former prime minister Shinzo Abe to raise the idea of discussing nuclear sharing with the United States. The Research Commission on National Security, an advisory body within the ruling ... Read More

      Abstract: The only thing better than reading a smart review of your book is to read four smart reviews, as is the case with this Asia Policy book review roundtable. I thank Aleksandar Matovski, Christopher Miller, Andrew Monaghan, and Mark Katz for their close readings of Weak Strongman: The Limits of Power in Putin's Russia. They not only provide many useful insights but also raise important questions that can help set a research agenda for studying Russia going forward.All book reviews are written in the shadow of current events, and few events have recently loomed larger than Russia's invasion of Ukraine. I was pleased to see that the reviewers found the book's emphasis on Russia's institutional pathologies to be a useful ... Read More

  • How Can Putin's Russia Be Best Understood'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Weak Strongman: The Limits of Power in Putin's Russia, Timothy Frye presents a strong case for how Russia's current politics and policies cannot be fully understood as simply "a reflection either of Vladimir Putin's worldview or Russia's unique history and culture" (pp. vii–viii). Instead, Russia can—and should—be understood with reference to the growing social science literature on nondemocracies to see how Putin's Russia is similar to or different from other autocratic regimes.Frye finds that Putin's Russia is more similar to other personalist autocracies than to autocracies ruled by organizations such as the military or a ruling party. Frye is quite persuasive in making his argument, showing in successive ... Read More

  • How Does the Weak Strongman Stay in Power' Exposing the Roots of
           Vladimir Putin's Rule in Russia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Conventional wisdom holds that populations support autocrats only because they are coerced, bribed, or brainwashed into obedience. Driven by this perception, much of the public discourse and analysis of contemporary dictatorships ignores the role of societies in the rise and operation of these regimes. Similarly, many of the checks on authoritarian power are downplayed. Elections are assumed to be so reliably manipulated, protest and opposition so effectively quashed, and all other institutions and elites so thoroughly co-opted that they do not meaningfully shape politics in these countries.Unsurprisingly, most of the ink is spilled on the seemingly all-powerful puppet masters. Dictators' personalities, obsessions ... Read More

  • Understanding the Enigma of Putin's Russia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Several months into the latest phase of the Russia-Ukraine War, it may seem like a strange time to refer to Russian president Vladimir Putin or his system of governance as "weak." It certainly does not feel that way on the frontlines of Donbas as Russia brings to bear all its conventional might in a war of conquest, the type of conflict many analysts thought had gone out of fashion in Europe after the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. If you had asked Russia watchers in the summer of 2021 about the likelihood of over 100,000 Russian soldiers marching into Ukraine, most would have seen the scenario as far-fetched. The entire field of Russian studies deserves tough questions about the adequacy of its methods for understanding ... Read More

  • An Autocrat's Dilemmas: Putin's Power and Its Limits

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Timothy Frye begins his fine book, Weak Strongman: The Limits of Power in Putin's Russia, with Russia's annexation of Crimea and the question of whether the United States should have militarily intervened in 2014. The book is intended to "improve our public conversation" about Russia (p. vii). His argument is that Russia is a personalist autocracy and an "opportunistic power that uses its military and economic might to influence weaker countries in its neighborhood while picking its spots against more powerful rivals like the European Union, United States, and China" (p. 200). Even so, Frye (correctly, in my view) both highlights the significant limits to Putin's power and also suggests that "Russia's next few ... Read More

      Abstract: Perhaps the two greatest beneficiaries of the phase of globalization that began in earnest in the mid-1970s and concluded with the 2008–9 global financial crisis were the world's preeminent power, the United States, and its principal strategic challenger, China. That roughly 35-year period witnessed the dismantling of trade barriers in numerous developing countries, the expansion of global supply chains, and a growing ratio between the values of goods trade to global output. However, mounting economic challenges at home, systemic shocks including the coronavirus pandemic and Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and the intensification of bilateral strategic frictions have collectively compelled each country to focus more ...

  • Changing Realities: China-Africa Infrastructure Development

      Abstract: Through an extensive portfolio of infrastructure investments, China has played a crucial role in helping Africa reduce deficits in its infrastructure. Over the past decade and a half, Chinese state-owned or state-aligned construction and engineering companies have strategically entered African markets with assistance from the Chinese government. Under China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Chinese companies took on mega-infrastructure projects, especially in the energy and transport sectors, that could aid African countries with achieving higher levels of development. However, these mega-BRI projects came with hefty price tags that have contributed to compounding the debt stress of several African nations. In this ... Read More

      Abstract: To better understand how Africans feel about China's growing presence and influence on the continent, it is important to look both at the headlines and beyond them to explain how ordinary people may be interpreting events and forming opinions. This essay homes in on one country, Zambia, to try to better understand public perceptions about Chinese engagement. Measured in per capita terms, this southern African country is one of the leading destinations for Chinese investment. The growing presence of Chinese citizens in Zambia, along with their money and involvement in different areas of the economy, has caused controversy and even tragedy, including the loss of both Chinese and Zambian lives.In May 2020, three ...

      Abstract: With socioeconomic development as the aim of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), an expected effect is a boost in science and technology across the participating regions. Collectively, the countries participating in BRI are home to 65% of the world's population, and digital technology is playing an increasingly crucial role in diplomacy, trade, and geopolitics. BRI's infrastructure-building campaign includes digital development through the Digital Silk Road (DSR), which aims to support BRI's streamlining of trade and industrial overcapacity with greater digital integration.1 To date, 52 of 55 African Union members have signed a memorandum of understanding with China on BRI.2Under President Xi Jinping, Beijing has ...

  • The China Effect: Democracy and Development in the 21st Century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The basic tenets of democracy are under threat worldwide as governance and human rights re-emerge as sources of ideological contention between China and the United States. Freedom House reported that between 2005 and 2020, "the number of Free countries in the world reached its lowest level…while the number of Not Free countries reached its highest level."1 African countries are prominent in this ideological contention due to their political and economic proximity to both powers. The majority of countries that Freedom House found to have regressed are in Africa and, in particular, sub-Saharan Africa, where since 2010 there have been fourteen successful military coups, most recently in Chad, Mali, Guinea, and Sudan. ...

      Abstract: There are many threads of discourse in Africa-China relations, inspired by growing flows of investment, trade, and aid. One important consideration in the budding relationships between African states and China is the adoption of digital infrastructure and surveillance technologies.1 Many experts have argued that China's intentions are to garner access to African developing markets while also allowing Beijing a "backdoor" through which to secure access to data. Thus, research and media coverage have focused disproportionately on Chinese reasons and incentives in the proliferation of information and communications technology (ICT) and surveillance technology, but little systematic attention has focused on the ...

  • China in Mauritius: The Telling of the Chinese Story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mauritius is a small island state situated strategically in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Home to 1.3 million people, its population claims ancestry from three continents—Europe, Asia, and Africa. France, and then Britain, ruled the island as a colony from 1715 to 1968, bringing enslaved Africans to tend the sugar plantations and attracting indentured laborers from India and merchants from China. France established a plantocracy economy and made French the island's official language. Britain's legacy is mainly administrative, having founded the island's modern electoral, legal, and parliamentary systems. Notably, Britain allowed French to remain the island's official language.1 In Mauritius today, many ... Read More

  • Introduction

      Abstract: Over the last decade, China's presence on the global stage has shifted dramatically: the country is now an economic powerhouse and increasingly influential in international organizations. As China rises, questions also arise pertaining to its strategic objectives toward many regions and in many domains. China appears to be seeking a "loose, partial, and malleable" hegemony over the global South—making the African continent a strategic priority for Beijing.1This Asia Policy roundtable is a result of a current research initiative at the National Bureau of Asian Research, "Into Africa: China's Emerging Strategy," which aims to better understand China's strategic ambitions in Africa and assess how the continent fits ...

  • Chinese Vaccine Diplomacy in Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Medicine has long played a key role in the Africa-China relationship. Since 1963, China has sent teams of medical volunteers to the continent annually to provide primary healthcare to underserved countries and targeted care related to particular diseases, notably malaria.1 China has also been instrumental in the development of a new generation of malaria medication, and the Ebola crisis of the 2010s created space for collaboration between China and other external partners on the continent. But most recently and most starkly, the Covid-19 pandemic has both validated and raised doubts about China-Africa medical cooperation, even as the virus ruthlessly exposed the realities of Africa's wider global position.This ...
