Abstract: Under Hu Jintao, China has promoted a “harmonious society” domestically and a “harmonious world” internationally. This policy has explicit Confucian overtones in obvious contrast to Maoist policies predicated on contradiction and conflict. The author inquires whether a foreign policy predicated on “harmony” can be theoretically and empirically differentiated from a realist outlook founded on “national interest.” The paper seeks to enrich sociological theories of international relations from non-Western sources and examine the real-world consequences of Chinese foreign policy discourse in an emergent East Asian order.The literature on traditional Chinese law distinguishes adjudication behaviour directed at Confucian notions of harmony from rights-based adjudication oriented towards justice and fairness in the Western legal tradition. The sociological work of Fei Xiaotong also distinguished traditional Chinese human relations from wetern sociological constructs. This paper applies Chinese sociological thought to international relations theory. How do contemporary Chinese views of world order bridge traditional themes with modern international relations theory? In what ways does Chinese pursuit of “harmony” complement or conflict with multilateral views of a liberal internationalism or the “international society” of the English School? The author looks at the Six Party Talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, China’s engagement of ASEAN and Africa as well as conflictual relations with Taiwan and Japan as evidence to interpret China’s role in constructing regional and world orders.

3. Tan, Sor-hoon. "Is Hu Shih's Liberalism Iconoclastic? "Chuantong" (Tradition) in China's Twentieth-Century Political Quest" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Sep 01, 2005 <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p39739_index.html>

Abstract: As a key figure of the New Culture Movement, which advocates saving China through a cultural transformation, Hu Shih may be mistaken for an iconoclast. Yet he spent much of his life studying the philosophy, the literature and other aspects of the Chinese cultural legacy. Was Hu Shih simply inconsistent or even self-contradictory? Did he change his position on the value or role of chuantong over the course of his long career? Or could we find in Hu Shih’s attitudes and relation to Chinese intellectual traditions and cultural legacies some illumination of what chuantong is, whether it can be simply equated with “traditions,” and even if equivalent, what is and should be its role as China struggles to find a place among the nations of a new era?

This paper examines the role of Hu Shih’s critique of tradition (chuantong) in his liberalism, associated with the pursuit of science and democracy. As a liberal, was he an iconoclast who would replace everything that is old with completely novel inventions, and were these inventions necessarily Western imports? How was his project of “putting in order the national heritage” (zhengli guogu) related to his promotion of “wholesale Westernization”? Was he inconsistent, or did his views justifiably changed over time? Were apparent inconsistencies the result of suiting the message to the audience?

Abstract: Will China become democratic? This is a critical question highly debated among scholars and pundits. While optimistic proponents suggest that China is experiencing a gradual or inevitable democratic transition, pessimists argue that China is either stagnating in its “trapped transition” or becoming a “resilient authoritarian regime.” One of the key issues of the debate focuses on different perceptions of the role of Chinese leaders in China’s democratization. This paper intends to shed some light on this widely debated question by exploring the belief systems of Hu/Wen. Using operational code analysis from political psychology, I examine public speeches and statements delivered by Hu and Wen especially regarding domestic issues from 2005-2007. I suggest that Hu and Wen as the fourth generation of China’s leadership share a similar belief system especially regarding domestic issues. Both of them have democratic-oriented beliefs perceiving a tolerant and cooperative political universe. In addition, both Hu and Wen are inclined to use cooperative and democratic means to achieve their political beliefs. However, both of them are weak in terms of implementing their political goals. China’s future as a democracy depends on whether Hu and Wen can consolidate their political power and strengthen their beliefs in order to lead the political transition.

Abstract: A broad range of indicators suggest that China has become much more globally active in recent years. Existing research has indentified a number of economic and strategic motivations behind China’s increased diplomatic and economic activism. Yet there have been no efforts to systematically test the relative importance of different drivers of China’s diplomatic priorities. What factors lead China to focus attention on relations with one country instead of another? Are economic or geostrategic factors more important, and are Chinese priorities changing over time? We argue that Chinese leadership travel abroad offers a useful, if imperfect, indicator of China’s diplomatic priorities. Using a unique, newly compiled dataset, we analyze quantitatively the correlates of travel abroad by top Chinese leaders from 1998 to 2006. We find that geo-strategic factors appear to have been the primary drivers of travel decisions early on (while Jiang Zemin was president), but that economic factors appear paramount later (under the presidency of Hu Jintao).
