The 70th anniversary year of India's independence after two centuries of British colonial rule provides an excellent occasion to take the measure of a country that, today, is pivotal for both Asian and international stability. At 70, despite the persistent domestic challenges of poverty and inequality,1 India is widely considered a rising power,2 and is indisputably the world's largest democracy.

MNCs, Rents, and Corruption: Evidence from China - CWP Alumni Boliang Zhu

Monday, Jan 9, 2017

Abstract: How does multinational corporation (MNC) activity affect corruption in developing countries? The existing literature tends to suggest that economic integration helps reduce corruption, as it increases market competition and efficiency and promotes the diffusion of good governance. In this article, I argue that such a generalization oversimplifies the consequences of MNC activity in host countries. The entry and presence of MNCs may contribute to rent creation in developing countries, thereby leading to a high level of corruption.

China’s Leninist leadership has rightly been termed the “high church of realpolitik.” Beijing’s leaders believe that even small changes in foreign leaders, correlation of forces, or the relative balance of power have important significance. If they appear in flux, China probes for opportunities. If meeting minimal or manageable resistance, it then pushes further to gain ground.

This article aims to provide a conceptual and theoretical framework toanalyze motivations, dilemmas, and challenges of China’s OBOR strategy.The article argues that OBOR could be viewed as China’s new geoeconomicstrategy. Potentially creating a new, China-led economic, diplomatic, andsecurity system, OBOR has great potential to transform China’s domestic andforeign policy. Uncertainties of OBOR are largely due to the fact that Chinais still uncertain about its role on the world stage.

Chinese Citizens’ Trust in Japan and South Korea: Findings from a Four-City Survey - CWP Alumni Xiaojun Li & Dingding Chen discuss

Many observers see mutual distrust as a major reason for increasing tensions in East Asia, but few studies systematically explore exactly how trust, or the lack of it, influences international cooperation in the region. We examine the microfoundations of international trust in East Asia by analyzing an original survey of Chinese urban residents’ attitudes toward Japan and South Korea. We find that generalized trust, or the belief that other nations have benign intentions, provides the most important driving force of trust toward Japan and South Korea.
