Theories of International Relations and US-China Relations
Write a short paper, with a clear thesis statement, using the theories of international relations (realism, liberalism, Marxism). Be consistent in your approach and make sure that you cover the answer for all of the following questions below. The paper needs to be two-three pages, single space.
- Is the conflict inevitable between the United States and China?
- If a conflict occurs in the future, are there ways to discourage them? Or are these conflicts just part of global politics between great powers?
- If China were to become a democracy, would conflict be more or less likely?
- Can international organizations (such as the United Nations) help to ameliorate the potential for great power conflict?
