1. Pratt, Jenner James. The Soft Power of Education and Its Role in Canada-Asia Relations: The Case Study of China.

Degree: Master, International Master Program in Asia-Pacific Affairs (IMAPA), 2016, NSYSU

The researcher set out to understand why Canada has been slow to move on the rise of Asia, and to uncover the best course of action for overcoming the countryâs Asia competence deficiency. Much has been offered by way of explanations and remedies, but the field of interest is devoid of a comprehensive synthesis of this information for use in effecting policy change. Prior study of this issue area has failed to cut through the web of factors to the core of both the problem, and solution. It also lacks critical analysis from a theoretical approach. The authorâs exploration of this topic was conducted using a constructivist framework, allowing it to shape the direction of the research, and interpret its results. All material, sourced from government and policy institute reports, academic journals, and news outlets, passed through this lens. It was made clear that education lies at the heart of what prevents progress, and what must be utilized to create a Canadian shift to Asia. Educationâs soft power holds the potential to establish a higher form of public discourse. If this soft power is cultivated properly through cohesive public sponsorship, a two-way flow of attraction will result, increasing interaction, and enabling the formation of a shared identity. As China is the most influential member of the Asian region, this study focused on drawing closer ties between Canada and the PRC. While they are saddled with a great deal of inhibitive controversy, Confucius Institutes come to the fore of this researcherâs work as powerful tools for initiating a deep and lasting pivot in the direction of securing Canadaâs place in the coming âAsian century.â Advisors/Committee Members: Allison Haga (committee member), Hsiu-Fei Wang (chair), Lin Wen-cheng (chair).

2. TULGA, AHMET YIGITALP. The African views on Chinaâs African Policy.

Degree: Master, International Master Program in Asia-Pacific Affairs (IMAPA), 2018, NSYSU

Through the years of Chinese involvement in Africa after decolonization, the Peopleâs Republic of China (PRC) has gradually become the largest trading partner of many African countries. Nowadays, its influence has been surpassing most of the Western powers such as Britain, France, and the United States, some of which have been involved in the African affairs for centuries. China's activities in Africa in the areas of trade, aids, foreign direct investments, and energy purchases have been growing rapidly in recent years. The purpose of this thesis is to analyze whether China is a new colonial power in Africa and to examine briefly on the development Sino-African relations and the changes of Beijingâs African policy. The thesis focuses mostly on identifying and analyzing the African views about China and Chinaâs African policy. Mainly qualitative methods are used in this research. A number of secondary published data and surveys are collected to support qualitative analysis in this study. Parallel to the rising influence of economic and political Sino-African relations, a tremendous amount of researches have been carrying out on the Sino-African relations in the literature. However, despite this increase in the literature, there is still limited information about Africans' views about China and China's African policy. This thesis analyzes the different dimensions of Africanâs views. In order to fill this gap and enrich the literature, the African political elites, students, media, and peopleâs views about China's African policy have been examined. Four important findings have been reached. The first finding is that a vast majority of Africans shares a rather positive view about China's African policy. The second finding is that not all African leaders have positive opinions about China, as Western sources indicate. In recent years, in some African countries, especially opposition parties start to adopt various kinds of anti-Chinese policies. The third finding is that the positive and negative views of the political elites and the media about China seriously affect the public's view. The fourth finding is that China is neither a colonialist nor a new colonialist power in Africa in the past and the present. Advisors/Committee Members: Professor Chyun-Yang Wang (chair), Professor Kai Yin Allison Haga (committee member), Professor HSIU-FEI WANG (chair).
