On September 6th 2007, President Bush met with Hu Jinto, China’s president to discuss such issues as tainted food, Iran, climate change, and individual freedom in China. This is an interesting deliemma of sorts between International relations theory, and shows some underlying motivators behind America’s talks with China. While the idea of having talks with another country, instead of simply going to war with them, is a liberalist idea, the notion of defending investments and protecting domestic ideals is a realist one. One of President Bush’s main points in his talk with President Hu was that of the faulty Chineese products, but this only masked what were perhaps Bush’s real intentions for the meeting. Human rights and freedoms for the Chinese people was the real adgenda. America has always taken the position that the kinds of lives we lead and the freedoms we enjoy could work for everybody. But it is almost the very opposite. In a liberalist world (that is one dominated by liberalist policies and consequently “the west”) Samuel Huntingdon points out in his Essay The Clash of Civilizations, that conflict will arise because of culture clashes. It has been evident throughout history that China has had a turbulent past with many rebellions and has had a need for a strong government. Having a strong government wracked with past revoloutions leads to a cutback of civil rights and personal freedoms, promoting realist ideals. Enter president Bush, leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world, in which history and patriotism lead to the rights and freedoms that America was founded on in 1776. Keeping that in mind, it seems almost impossible for America to sway China in its domestic policies and human rights because they simply have different values and lead totally foreign lives to that of one another. If President Bush were to make a real push for what…...

...Essay Questions 1. How do the different actors in international system affect international relations? How do the different theories explain the role of these actors in the international system. The actors consist of state actors and non-state actors. Non-state actors and terrorism work outside the westphalian system and take power away from state sovereignty. They consist of terrorist groups, IGO’s like the European Union, NGO’s like multinational corporations. NGO’s increase interdependence and globalization. IGO’s bring about peace and spread democracy and war is not realistic. NGO’s even have the ability to remove state governments through public support and pressure placed on high ranking officials as shown in -----. They also have the power to hinder development of countries as shown in the Global South, but at the same time they provide many jobs for the economy. For state actors, the actions and decisions of states can effect profoundly the international because of polarity, hegemony, and economy. The Liberalist view would see non-state actors as a positive because they are bringing countries allowing them to work together through institutions increasing interdependence and globalization. Realists would say that these non-state actors are only out for self interest in profit and will use up resources taking advantage of wages whenever possible. Constructivist view would see terrorist groups specifically as falling under Samuel Huntington’s Clash of......

Ir and Glocalization

...Ir and globalization CONENT: Introduction Body 1. What is Globalization and how it is related with the International Relations; 2. Advantages and Disadvantages of the Globalization; 3. Effectiveness of the Globalization Conclusion NTRODUCTION In my work I talk about the Globalization and its relation with the Globalization where I dwelled upon the Globalization. In the second part I did survey and focused on the advantages and disadvantages of globalization as the statistics show.After hammering out the two factors I wrote about de facto effectiveness of the Globalization and at the end I stated my estimation and conclusion. International Relation and Globalization As more nations, people, and cultures adapt to the ever changing international community, diplomats, politicians, and representatives must meet and deal with accordingly to the needs and wants of nations. Diplomacy can be exerted in many forms; through peace talks, written constitutions, field experiences, etc. Culture is a familiar term and remains unchanged by definition. However, globalization and international relations have constantly altered culture both positively and negatively. Globalization increases worldwide technology, and the readability of fast, effective communication and consumption of popular products. Globalization links cultures and international relations on a variety of levels; economics, politically, socially, etc. International relations have used globalization to reach its goal: of......

Why No Non-Western Ir Theory in Asia

...Assessment 1 Reading: * Preface: “Why is there no non-western IR theory in Asia: Reflections on and from Asia”; * Conclusion: “On the possibility of a non-Western IR theory in Asia”. A Consideration of IR Theory in (East) Asia: Main Points, critiques and discussion Report By J.R Brown Submitted 06/08/2013 This two-part essay is a collection of papers collated after the completion of the workshop entitled “Why is there no Non-Western IR theory: Reflections on and from Asia.” It conception arose out of Amitav Acharyas’ realisation about the concerning gap between his academic speciality (Third world and Asian security) and International Relations Theory (IRT). His co-author Barry Buzan felt similarly after his various work in and around Asia led him to realise how little asia-specific IRT development was taking place. Acharya and Buzan stipulate their overall purpose as that of stimulating “non-Western voices to bring their historical and cultural, as well as their intellectual, resources into the theoretical debates about IR”. Their opening (and decidedly founding) question is ‘What is the possibility of a non-Western IRT in Asia?’ which they answer through a critical examination of their collective findings. It is important to note that they stipulated forcefully within their discussion the important note: “We are not....concerned with identifying or advocating an Asian school of IR......which would involve constructs (Asian values,......

Ir and the Changing Contemporary World of States

...IR and the Changing Contemporary World of States (Robert Jackson & George Sorensen) Muhammmad Alaydrus / 201310360311128 Many Important Questions in the study of IR are connected with the theory and practice of sovereign statehood.There are two perspectives about the proper scope of IR.At one extreme scholarly focus is exclusively on states and interstate relations; but another extreme IR includes almost everything that has to do with human relations across the world. So,it is very important to study about this two different prespectives if we hope to understand about the rounded and knowledge of IR. The state system is the main point of reference both for traditional and for new approaches.There are debates about how we should conceptualize the state and different IR theories take somewhat different approaches.but,however the fact is that state and the state system remain at the center of academic analysis and discussion in IR. We Must be Alert to the fact that the sovereign state is a contested theoritical concept.there are many different answers about the question “What is the state?” ; “What is the state system?”. There are different answers is because depending on the theoritical approach adopted.None of the answers are stricktly speaking either correct or incorrect because the truth is, the state is a multifaceted and somewhat confusing entity. The state is have two different dimensions.it is divided into two broad categories. The first dimensions is the......

Discourses of Standpoint Feminism in Ir

...0 Term Paper Discourses of Standpoint Feminism in International Relations Shipra Shukla M.Phil Student Subject: Advanced International Relations Theories Department of Political Science University of Delhi 1 1. 1 Introduction Feminism can be simply defined as the study of and movement for women not as subjects but as subjects of knowledge. During the 1980s, feminism and the role of gender have gained entry in the study of international relations. Prior to this feminism was greatly ignored. However, over the last decade, feminism has emerged as a key critical perspective within the study of international relations. The initial thrust of this critique was to challenge the fundamental biases of the discipline and to highlight the ways in which women were excluded from analyses of the state, international political economy, and international security. According to O'Callaghan (2002) feminism in international relations can be framed in two main domains. The first wave of feminist scholarship in the 1980s is now called feminist empiricism; in which international relations scholars have sought to reclaim women’s hidden voices and to expose the multiplicity of roles that women play in sustaining global economic forces and state interactions. For example, women’s participation and involvement facilitate tourism, colonialism, and economically powerful states’ domination of weak states. The maintenance of the international political economy depends upon stable political......

...might be the real reason behind U.S. military decisions. The research question opposes the cases of Rwanda and Iraq. Both countries faced a very serious humanitarian situation, however we see U.S. intervention in Iraq, but not in Rwanda. Research Question “Why would a democracy like the U.S, where respect for human rights has long been a central component of foreign policy, intervene in a country like Iraq, where human rights have been violated, and genocide against the Kurds has been committed, but not do the same elsewhere, like in Rwanda that has seen one of the most ferocious genocides in history? What is it that pushed the U.S to take proactive steps towards remedying a determined situation in a country rather than another?” Theory The U.S did not invade Iraq to intervene in response to human rights violations, but rather did so for a more lucrative purpose. The official given reason of U.S intervention was Iraq's alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD)*a, however due to the lack of evidence that such threat actually existed, many argue that what caused the U.S to intervene was the presence of vast reservoirs of oil. As a matter of fact, *1 Iraq ranks fifth in the list of the ten biggest oil reservoirs in the world. Furthermore, *3before the 2003 U.S invasion, Iraq's domestic oil industry was fully nationalized and closed to Western oil companies.

Rationality, Norms and Identity in Ir

...international political life. Constructivism maintains that identity or norms are causally prior to actors’ interests. Yet when there is conflict between pursuit of interests and maintenance of identity or norms, actors’ strong and well-defined self-interests can overrule their contested or unstable identity or norms. In short, causal arrows can flow in either direction between identity or norms and interests. This implies that rationalism and constructivism are complementary rather than competitive in explaining international political life. International Politics (2015) 52, 110–127. doi:10.1057/ip.2014.41 Keywords: rationalism; constructivism; rationality; norms; identity; international relations theory Introduction Since the 1990s, one of the major debates in International Relations (IR) scholarship has been between rationalism and constructivism (Katzenstein et al, 1998; Fearon and Wendt, 2002). How to define the relationship between rationality and norms or identity has been one of the main issues in this debate. Rationalists tend to subsume norms and identity under the concept of instrumental rationality. This article maintains that ideational or social-psychological motivations such as norms and identity cannot be fully explained by instrumental rationality.

The Securities & Exchange Commission’s (SEC) XBRL mandate began in 2009, requiring all public companies to submit financial statements in XBRL format (United States Securities and Exchange Commission, 2011). The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has used the standard since 2005. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the latest of these immense government agencies to flirt with idea of implementing a XBRL mandate. The purpose of this paper is to briefly (1) explore why XBRL is the preferred standard, (2) shed light on the exploratory phase that the IRS has entered and the benefits to be gained from the new standard as well as the obstacles that lie ahead, (3) look at what the rest of the world is doing, and finally (4) look at the inevitability of an IRS adoption of XBRL.
