1. Novak, Nathan William. Status Theory of International Politics: A Case Study of Japan's Foreign and Security Policy.

Degree: Master, ICAPS, 2016, NSYSU

This thesis wrestles with key problems in both international relations theory: What is the nature of the international system? Is the structure of the international system based solely (or even mostly) on material capabilities, or is it really ideas all the way (or even most of the way) down? What are the motivations of states? Are states revisionist- or status quo-oriented, are they power or security maximizers, or are they something else altogether? It also deals with key questions regarding Japan's foreign and security policy: Is Japan a reactive/passive (status-quo) state, or is it proactive (and possibly revisionist)? Can Japan's foreign policy be described as "hedging" or as a "dual hedge"? What is the best way to conceptualize Japan's place in the U.S.-Japan alliance or in Japan's relationship with the People's Republic of China? In this thesis, the proto-theory of status enhancement is put forth as a viable alternative to all of these questions. Status enhancement argues that, at the very least, most states most of the time – and particularly since the advent of nuclear weapons – are status enhancers, where status is akin to rank in a socially understood hierarchy of states based on "objective" status markers (for example, military and economic capabilities) and "intersubjective" status markers (here specified and defined as influence, authority, legitimacy, and prestige). Status enhancement argues that the structure of the international system is social (harkening back to constructivism) and material (harkening back to Waltzian neorealism) and that the driving force behind state identities, interests, and behaviors is the assertion that states can imagine a better world, that is, one in which they have more and not less control over their external environments (harkening back to neoclassical realism). After dealing with numerous theoretical and practical problems regarding the formation of such a theory, both with regard to international political theory and Japan-specific theories, and defining and operationalizing variables, this thesis then tests status enhancement against the historical period in Sino-Japan and U.S.-Japan relations from September, 2006 to December, 2014. It finds that, although limited in scope, the proto-theory of status enhancement is a potentially viable theory of international politics.

2. Chao, Shen. The Challenges of Cyber Warfare to Traditional Security Theories-Comparative Study on US-Japan-China Cyber Warfare Institutions.

Degree: PhD, ICAPS, 2016, NSYSU

The Internet challenges national power and interests which causes the adjustment and transfer of national security concept in most countries. The cyberspace not only contributed the development of information society but also derived some risks that are different than the traditional threats before. In order to promote the strength and safety factor of network, government may have to enhance the threat coefficient at the same time. The pursuit of the advantages of network authority to enhance national strength and safety factor; also raises the threat coefficient to countries. The innovation of technologies also creates new combat areas, which extends the military affairs from tangible battlefield space to intangible battlefield spaces. Consequently the cyberspace battlefield has been extended to the fifth-dimensional space in a socio-technical society. Cybersecurity has been upgraded from industrial to national strategy which is a new foundation of cyberwarfare strategic in most countries. When government tries to expand and upgrade the abilities of cyberwarfare, it may also increase the possibilities of war. For instant, the government of the United States has declared that the attack behavior within cyber space will be equivalent to an act of war. The harm of cyberattack have attracted national attention which causes government tries to build and enhance their network warfare capability, in addition to strengthening network security protection systems and boost the capacity of the counter. When cyberwarfare challenges the type of war, the patterns of traditional war have been changed into a net world. The core foundation of cyber is knowledge; it is also the main factor of destructive power. The goal of cybewarfare is to pursuit the advantage of battlefield Network rights which may contribute the change of war principles. Therefore, countries have to practice the cyberwar strategies in military organization, also should consider the cooperation and policy integration in international level, such phenomena could be seen in the USA, Japan, and China. Consequently, in order to prevent the controversial issue of cyberspace among the countries, governments not only have to defense and strengthen the policy legislation to prevent cybercrime, but also may establish a standardized and orderly network world in the international community.

3. Chen, Chih-Hung. Party-Army Relations in the Era of Jiang Zemin.

Degree: Master, Mainland China Studies, 2002, NSYSU

Abstract In the era of Jiang Zemin, the core leader of third generation has not be much more powerful than other leaders. Hence, he needs to build a coalition to gathering varied interests that supported his leadership. He had to bargain and compromise with other leading officials, to generate resources in order to reward and maintain the coalition which supporting him in power. Based on such âgive and takeâ relations, he had been relatively weak when bargain with military or other interest groups within Chinese political system. And that might be the major reason to explain why the Peopleâs Liberation Army (PLA) could get the unforeseeable political influence in the Jiang era. When discussing the Party-Army relations in the Jiang era, it would be useful to view the PLA as an interest group in the Chinese political system. Therefore, I posit two basic assumptions to analyzing such relations. The first is that army and Party are engaged in a chronic and multiform conflict stemming from their incompatible outlooks and interests. The second is that Party would insist in controlling the army and keep suppressing the expression of its group interests. Besides, several variables would be introduced to identify such conflict. These include the declination of ideological indoctrination, the power reduction of the political control system in the army, the absence of regularized procedures for the transfer of political power within the ruling Party elite, the acceptance of the principle of collective leadership, and the modernization of the economy. These factors would be used to explain the transformation of the Party-Army relations. Advisors/Committee Members: Wen-Cheng Lin (committee member), Shu-Fan Ding (chair), Chong-Pin Lin (chair).
