Economic Interdependence and Peaceful Power Transition
Unformatted Document Text:  5 state’s perception of the threat posed by the challenger is also essential to the peaceful/conflictual transition. If the dominant state perceives the rising state as the major threat to its leading status, and the parity is prolonged enough, conflictual transition is more likely. Structural conditions such as the changes in relative power, hierarchical structures, and joint satisfaction provide the preconditions for conflict and cooperation during power transitions. Decisions to go to war are constrained by domestic political structure, foreign trade, perceptions of individual leaders, and participation in multilateral organization (Mansfield 2001). To study how power transition can precede peacefully, political, economic, military, and social dimensions of great power relations have to be examined during power transitions. Both traditional and extended power transition theory emphasizes domestic growth as the source of national power. It links domestic and international politics within a single perspective. Unfortunately, it does not explore how globalization, interdependence and domestic political stability affect the nature and dynamics of power transition. Even though no existing research has been conducted on how economic interdependence will affect relations between states during power transition, there are many recent analyses of how economically important trade significantly reduces the probability of militarized disputes between countries (Vries 1990, Beck et al. 1998, Barbieri 1998, Oneal and Russett 1999, Mansfield 2001).
