Does President Donald J. Trump have a coherent statecraft? Can we find a consistent grand strategy in this new administration, worth calling the “Trump Doctrine”? Mainly supported by angry Jacksonian folks who have been frustrated with economic polarization and racial anxiety, Trump’s foreign policy idea resonates well with European realism. Consid...

대학-지역 연계 수업은 학생들의 지역에 대한 신뢰에 어떤 영향을 줄 것인가? 정치학과의 대학-지역 연계 수업은, 지역에서 벌어지는 정치 현상과 정책 결정 과정에 대한 이해를 바탕으로 손에 잡히는(tangible) 정치 문제를 해결하기 위한 방법을 모색함으로써, 민주 시민으로서의 역할을 강화하는데 그 목적을 둔다. 하지만 아직까지 이러한 수업이 학생들의 지역 사회와 지역 정치에 대한 신뢰에 어떤 영향을 주는지에 대한 연구는 부족했다. 본 연구는 대학-지역 연계 수업의 효과성을 분석하기 위해, 준실험 연구를 설계(quasi-experimental research design)하여 진행하였고, 사회적 자본, 지역 소속감, 지...
Article
Party polarization is the new buzzword in American politics and yet partisanship seems to play such a small role in determining congressional votes on China policy. We still do not know much about how polarized politics in Washington actually exerts influence in the making of U.S. policy toward Beijing. Paying special attention to America’s respons...

Legislative responses to social changes signify how representative democracy works. Yet research is still needed to find out whether and how representatives in new democratic countries address the constituents’ interests and demands. We revisit the 18th National Assembly in Korea (2008–12) to examine legislative activities surrounding the issue of...

Conventional wisdom is that trade policy is often guided by geopolitical security considerations. A growing body of research addresses the security–trade linkage as a plausible cause for executive negotiations over the Korea–US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA) in 2007. Yet, the approval of a trade deal with the Asian ally by America's legislature i...
Article
Twenty years after the deal struck between the United States and North Korea over the nuclear crisis, the security environment on the Korean Peninsula remains unstable. When it comes to the U.S.-North Korea Agreed Framework from 1994 through 2002, previous research has paid scant attention to how the U.S. Congress responded to President Clinton’s a...
Article
How and why do legislative members weigh in on foreign policy dilemmas? U.S. Congress often seeks to carve out spheres of influence over international relations and yet we know little about why and how some America's lawmakers take North Korea seriously. This article explores a host of North Korea measures during the 111th and 112th U.S. Congress (...
Article
Despite putting themselves in a thorny relationship with heavy-handed party leaders, some US legislators continue to join moderate coalitions. To understand why, this article derives seven explicit hypotheses concerning electoral, institutional, and strategic dimensions and tests them on two moderate coalitions from the 107th to the 110th Congress...
Article
As the Vietnam War concluded with the failure of US foreign policy, the so-called “Cold War consensus” collapsed in American politics and society. A significant number of lawmakers came to revisit their national security positions, and under these circumstances the Anti-ballistic Missile (ABM) bills came up in the 91st Congress (1969–70). The costl...

Even when the stakes of party-building are high, political parties often find their members divided over a key policy position. In post-Reconstruction America, the hot-button issue of excluding Chinese immigrant workers strengthened Democratic cohesion while splitting the 'party of Lincoln'. Previous research has not completely investigated the rol...

How do party members manage recurring and divisive foreign policy agendas? Do they stay the course or switch their position? The annual decision in Congress regarding the extension of China’s most favored nation (MFN) status was a high-profile foreign policy battle between the anti-China coalition and its pro-China counterpart. To test theories of...
Article
In this paper, we show that leaders frequently use foreign policy to solve domestic problems, but they do so in ways that traditional diversionary war or scapegoat theories of international politics do not predict. In contrast to scapegoat theory, which assumes that leaders use foreign crises and threats to rally and unify their publics, we argue t...
