Abstract:

Putnam's influential two-level games framework stimulates huge interests in international students to examine the linkage politics between domestic politics and international relations (Putnam, 1988). In Putnam's two-level games, the central government, or the COG, functions as a transmission belt between domestic politics and international affair. Under this formula, naturally, the possibility and consequence for other domestic groups to enter directly into the international negotiation arena are almost omitted or unthinkable. Though Jeffrey Knopf's upgrading of Putnam's two-level games into three-to-three games solve this problem partially(Knopf, 1993), but just as Putnam's approach, the major focus of Knopf's three-to-three games is still in international negotiation, as for the problem how the domestic political groups try to make use of the international negotiation to garner political advantages is missing. In this regard, Puchala's issue politicization approach to the study of EC' s financial policy harmonization (Puchala 1984) shed a lot of new light to this issue. In this paper, I will try to use Taiwan's Mainland China policy since the March 2000 Taiwan's president election as a case to study the two-level games from the perspective of issue politicization. I will try to illuminate how the different political considerations for the governing party, that is, the pro-independence DPP(Democratic Progressive Party), and the opponent party, the KMT, contribute to the disarray of Taiwan's Mainland China policy after the election of Chen Shuibian as Taiwan's new president in 2000. More than the empirical conclusions, I also intend to draw out some theoretical references from this case study for Putnam's Two-level games and show how it can be turned around to study the effects of international negotiation on the fortunes for the domestic political parties.
