“The Belt and Road Initiative” and the New Ideas for Development

Zhang Yunling

Abstract:The Silk Road Economic Belt has three major routes that extend in three directions.Its northern route connects East Asia with the Europe through Russia.Its middle route also extends to the Europethrough Central and West Asia.Whereas its southern route meanders to the Maritime Silk Road via the Southeast Asia.On the other handthe 21st Century Maritime Silk Road has two major directions.One direction is pointed westward to Africa through the South China Sea and the Indian Oceanwhile the other direction is oriented towards the South Pacific region.Now the contour and the overall blueprint of “the Belt and Road Initiative” BRIhave been clearly definedand tens of thousands of projects are being constructed within in framework of BRI's grand design.The most desired long-term design is to make the whole continent well connected and integrated.In this waythe areas once linked by ancient silk road may be transformed from their underdeveloped state that evolved all the way from early modern historyand the glamorous honor of the ancient silk road may be recreated.Thereforeit is proposed that a new strategic mentality should be created for the BRI construction.More specificallyit is proposed that new ideas shall be adopted to propel the development of China and relevant regionssuch as new type of cooperative development and new type of big power relations.It should be pointed out that BRI is a “hundred-year-project” containing historical implications.The BRI idea is developing from a Chinese plan into a worldwide initiative for cooperation.

“The Belt and Road Initiative” Construction and the China-U.S. Relations

Zhao Minghao

Abstract:The United States is not located within the areas covered by “the Belt and Road Initiative”but it may restrain or even impede the BRI construction.Thereforeit is necessary to handle the difficult issues related to the gaming between big powers in a more effective wayas the BRI is now carried forward steadily and its projects are constructed in details.Particularlyas the U.S.community of strategic studies is paying more and more attention to BRImore appropriate means should be adopted to deal with its role and influence.In order to monitor and manage the influence of the U.S.on BRIthere is a need to sort out the various strategic concerns of the U.S.on BRIthe specific risks that might be brought by the U.S.once it adopts some measures to restrain China's maneuver for BRIand the points of possible China-U.S.cooperation for expanding common interests.

China’s Investment in Indonesia within the Framework of “the Belt and Road Initiative”

WU Chongbo

Abstract:Indonesia's strategy of global maritime pivot shares many common points with China's initiative for constructing a 21st Maritime Silk Roadso these two grand plans may benefit each other and jointly provide a broad space for the Indonesia-China bilateral cooperation on economy and trade. As a matter of factIndonesia becomes increasingly attractive to Chinese businessmen and Chinese investment in Indonesia is growing at very high speedin the process of transforming China's the Belt and Road Initiative from blueprint into actions. This trend can be attributed to Indonesia's geographical location that may be interpreted as an important strategic pivot for the maritime silk road. Supported by the maturing of the population dividendthe Indonesian market enjoys a very promising futurealthough it is still faced with many difficulties and challenges. FurthermoreIndonesian government is taking an effort to improve its business environmentand those international rating agencies are uplifting their rating on Indonesian sovereign debts. All these factors help to raise new waves of investment from China. It is estimated that the following sectors of Indonesian economy may offer Chinese investors good chance of earning substantial profitsinfrastructureelectricityinformation technology, agriculture and food safety, and tourism.

The Profound Reasons and Future Trends of the Fluctuations of the China-Japan Relations

Wu Jinan

Abstract:In 2016the momentum to improve the China-Japan relationswhich had been developing for several years in the pastsuffered a serious setback.This is because the Japanese rulers made a high-pitched intervention into the territorial disputes over the islands in the South China Seaescalated the already stressful tensions in the East China Seaand brought troubles to China's “Belt and Road” construction.This situation once again certified the complexity and endurance of the strategic gaming between China and Japan.The most crucial and fundamental cause leading to the continuous fluctuations of the China-Japan relations is the misperceptions of Japanese rulers in their evaluations over China.It is estimated that competition and challenges will coexist with cooperation and opportunities in the China-Japan relations in the foreseeable futurebecause it is very difficult to rectify the above-mentioned root cause.

Japan's Participation in UN Peacekeeping Operations after the Issue of the its New National Security Law: Characteristics of Decision Making and Factors of Restrictions

Zhang Xiaolei

Abstract:Three characteristics of Japan's bureaucracy-guided policymaking can be discovered in the process of Japanese government's decision to grant its self-defense force the new missions of peacekeeping1)The policy orientation is guaranteed by the continuously strengthened bureaucracy-guided policymaking mechanism.2)The policy implementation is operated through a cooperative model characterized by increasingly unhindered political-bureaucratic relations.3)There is a continuously clarified framework regulating the relations between the ruling party and the governmentin which the status of the government is higher than that of the ruling party.This framework ensures that the policymaking procedures can be carried forward completely and efficiently.Although the Japanese government already passed a cabinet resolution that grants its self-defense force new missions to participate in the UN peace keeping activitiesthree factors still restrict the smooth implementation of this new mission1) It is widely suspected that the new mission granted to Japan's self-defense force may violate Japan's constitution.2)There is a possibility that the members of Japan's self-defense force have to take much more risks than beforewhich may disturb Japan's general public and make them worried.3) An institutional dilemma already exists in the peace keeping operations of UN.

The Trump Administration, the Korean Nuclear Issue, and China’s Neighboring Diplomacy

Zhang Yun

Abstract:The tension in the Korean Peninsula has been on the rise particularly since 2016 the year of American presidential election.Facing the rapid technological advances ofDPRK in the nuclear and ballistic-missile programsthe Trump administration has to put the Korean nuclear issue as one top priority in its security and strategic agenda.Due to the failure of economic sanction and strategic patiencethe new administration is under the pressure of military deterrence advocates.MeanwhileChinese policy toward DPRK is also facing new challenges.On the one handChina has devoted to its diplomacy with DPRK.On the other handthe internal and external doubts toward the effectiveness of Chinese diplomacy toward Korea is on the rise.This article seeks the roots of the current dilemma by comparing the post-Cold War Chinese and American diplomacies toward DPRK from the strategic and historical perspective.This article argues that the strategic rationale of the Chinese diplomacy toward DPRK has been sound and consistent.China should stick to this strategic rationalebut more innovative practices might be needed to transform Chinese logic to regional consensus on the Korean Peninsula issue.Korean Peninsula is an important part of Chinese neighboring diplomacyit is of significance for enriching the strategic thinking and diplomatic practices of Chinese neighboring diplomacy.

The Issue of Religious Securitization in the United States and Its Influence on the United States Policy towards China: An Observation on the Transformation from Religious Freedom to Religious Terrorism

Liu Qian

Abstract:The theoretic framework of “securitization” offers a new logic for security studies and reveals the “intra-actor” nature of security issue.More importantly“securitization” provides academic evidence for those actors who control the security discourse and aim at “obtaining a kind of special power by proposing a specific issue that enjoys the highest priority”.In this sensethe religious issue has been lingering in the security agenda of China-U.S.talks as one of the important issues in the China-U.S.relations.Particularlyon this issuethe United States acts as the initiator of securitization and China acts as “a potential passive actor”.Since the end of the cold warthe focus of the United States on religious issues has been shifted from religious freedom to religious terrorism.Against this backgroundthe China-US interactions on religious issues have been transformed from “confrontation” to “cooperation”.
