The significance of a citation of China’s Xi Jinping, incorporating Confucius’ sayings, resides not in its physical reality, but in core values, which imply the Agent [A] of the [AaO] formalism as the intentional force in a relationship to the Objective [O] and thus the idea of self-orientation. It follows that the intention of Xi needs to be mediated through an exchange of properties that are duty-bound with respect to self-cultivation, their family, community and society. Stated in terms...

This paper compares Norway's strategies to promote carbon sequestration based climate change mitigation measures Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+). It aims to explain what makes Norway such a strong promoter of the two by focusing on the conceptual characteristics of CCS and REDD+. Treating Norway mitigation action portfolio as foreign policy, a two-level analytical framework is presented to this end. The analysis shows how...

The purpose of the essay is to analyze current long range Soviet strategy in the Middle East to determine whether her penetration of this region reflects a normal projection of influence by a strong global power, or rather indicates a sinister plot to turn the countries of the Middle East into Soviet satellites. A study is made of historical indicators which reflect Russian desires concerning her southern neighbors, and will be followed by a discussion of recent economic and military aid...

The purpose of the paper is to determine if the role of the military can be improved in ending limited wars. In examining this problem it was determined that wars drag on due to a number of factors related to: (1) frequent failures of policy makers in exercising their planning responsibilities; (2) deleterious effects of politics, the public, and diplomacy on war termination; and (3) difficulties in fighting limited wars. These problems are discussed based on data from related studies, memoir...

The importance of maintaining peace, stability, and United States prestige throughout the Middle East is acknowledged by most scholars and statesmen. Many of these authorities believe that US policy has been decidedly pro-Israel and that this bias has resulted in a deterioration in US influence in the area. Some attribute this pro-Israel bias to interest group influence. The paper considers the foreign policy process in the Federal Government and identifies points of access into the process...

The national security policy of Imperial Germany during the decade prior to World War I is described in terms of the dynastic and diplomatic efforts made to split the Triple Entente and redress the Empire's political isolation.

China's conflict and cooperative behavior was examined from the perspective of Rummel's field theory which states that 'the behavior of one nation toward another is a linear transformation of their differences from each other on their attributes.' The period of study included sixteen years, 1950- 1965. China's behavior toward all sovereign nations was measured with seventeen selected variables at five selected time points, 1950, 1955, 1960, 1963, and 1965. Then the data were factor analyzed...

The Soviet Union maintains that its territorial waters, including those in the Arctic, extend 12 n mi from its coastline. It has also declared a 'sector claim' which Soviet jurists have unofficially interpreted to mean that the USSR also claims the airspace above the sector as well as the ice islands, the ice pack, and the waters between the Arctic Basin islands and between the islands and the mainland. These claims may become troublesome with the advent of surface-effect vehicles and submarine...

The effects of policy decisions on international behavior are discussed as not adequately separated from the effects of social ecology (e.g., power, development, type of political system) in traditional behavioral research. The deeper incursions that can be made into policy analysis by behavioral science methods, as distinguished from game theory, are seen to include concepts of goal, drift, and actual states of the international system in research designs, and to analyze gaps between predicted...

The belief that the United States must retain an 'assured destruction' capability, to be able to destroy some fixed percentage of Soviet citizenry and industrial capacity, even after absorbing a Soviet nuclear first strike, is the cornerstone of American strategic policy, both at present and in the mid-to-late 1960's.

The procedures are designed to assist rather than to substitute for the analyst's own judgment.

The study compares an international system approach and a foreign policy approach to the study of alliance behavior in conflict situations. The Berlin Conflict of 1961 provides a case in which the study explores an event- interaction model, an organizational process model, and a combination of both. As hypothesized, the organizational processes model is more valid than the other models in the pre- and post-crisis phases of the Berlin Conflict of 1961. The combined model is more relevant during...

In this quarter, status theory was subsumed under the analytic framework of field theory in a paper, 'A Status-Field Theory of International Relations.' To assess the new theory within the context of past history and other international relations theories, library research has been carried out through the period. Additional tests of field theory, this time using data on Communist China, evidenced the theory's universality. Study of action-oriented policy analysis was extended to develop...

One research effort aims to devise and test quantitative techniques which can be employed to assess the problem forms of conflict and cooperation between nations, thereby assisting the Department of Defense in its long-range logistical and startegic planning. A second research indicates an encompassing pattern in the country's foreign policy making -- a pattern that emphasizes a ubiquitous feeling in Australia of powerlessness and dependency in international affairs.

Two theories and considered which are current in theoretical and empirical international relations research. One is field theory, based on the idea that nation similarities and differences cause international behavior. The other is status theory, derived largely from the sociological status literature, which argues that international behavior is cased by status rank and disequilibrium. Both can be combined to postulate that status dependent, dyadic, cooperative, and conflict behavior of...

A study was made of Communist China's contemporary foreign behavior patterns. The purpose of the research is to explain Communist China's system of foreign relations by examining her differences and similarities with each other nation. Rummel's field theory guides the study. Applying this theory, a theoretical model of foreign behavior decision-making system was formulated. The research has focused on determining China's idiosyncratic systems of both perceptions of attribute distances and...

Five patterns of dyadic foreign conflict behavior were delineated for 1963. They included negative communications, violence intensity, warning and defensive acts, negative sanctions and unofficial incidence of violence. The unofficial incidents of violence were noted in the less developed and smaller nations, frequently directed against major world powers. The negative communication pattern was studied in the primary behavior of the major world powers.

In the past quarter, field theory was extended to provide greater relevance and applicability to traditional international relations theories. Special emphasis was placed on the interrelationship between field theory and status theories. Methodologies and guiding principles for the conduct of policy analysis studies were formulated, and a call for more action-oriented policy analyses was made. The analysis of the United Nations voting patterns was extended by attempting to predict voting based...

The purpose of the proposed research is three-fold: first, to predict conflict and cooperative behavior between any pair of Asian countries (dyad) from knowledge about differences on such attribute dimensions as political, value, economic development, etc.; second, to delineate sub-regional groupings of Asian nations with respect to conflict and cooperation; and third, to display the profiles of national attributes for each group.

An analysis of U.N. voting for 1963 delimited four major issue dimensions: sanctions against racial discrimination, U.N. procedures, Union of South Africa, and cold war. Since 1955 there has been a considerable shift of nonaligned nations, such as Egypt, India, and Indonesia, away from the Soviet position. Revisions of a mathematical model of foreign conflict behavior were tested on a global sample of dyads and for subsamples involving the same actor. Testing of a missing data estimation...

When United Nations delegates were asked to mark a questionnaire probing matters concerning the United Nations system and international affairs, different behavioral patterns emerged within a cooperative group of delegates. Delegates generally seemed positive in regard to wishes and perceptions. The questionnaire scores were related to the predictors (factors calculated from attributes concerning the respondents' home states) and the two factors development and authoritarianism was observed....

The purpose of systematic evaluation procedures is to help policy analysts confronted with difficult decisions to form wise choices. Few useful guidelines have been offered for the evaluation of action alternatives, especially in the realm of foreign policy formation. Schemes based on statements of goals or objectives or on the use of broadly applicable criteria for choosing among alternatives can be misleading, and they are frequently found to be unworkable. Rather than searching for...

The International Relations Archive undertakes as its primary goals the acquisition, management and dissemination of international affairs data. The first goal in the present study was concerned with thee measurement of political instability. The second goal was a search for the correlates of internal conflict behavior. The investigators were not concerned with the dynamics underlying stability in any one particular country but with the determinants of stability within all national political...
