Foreign Policy Analysis in China
The rise of China and the increasing importance of US-China relations have drawn the world's attention to the foreign relations of China, particularly how the Chinese view foreign relations and what approaches Chinese scholars and decisionmakers are adopting to analyze foreign relations. Are the. Chinese mainly applying Western approaches, or are there any unique Chinese approaches to foreign policy analysis (FPA)? These are significant questions with important implications for states that interact with China. By presenting some major characteristics of Chinese scholars' approaches to FPA and laying out some theoretical differences between foreign policy decisionmaking in China and in the United States, I intend this chapter to enrich our understanding of FPA in China as well as reveal the contributions and problems of a Chinese approach.
