CSCC Speaker Series: Jack Zhang, "Is China an Exception to the Commercial Peace? Trade Interdependence and Chinese Uses of Military Force”
September 14, 2018
CSCC Conference Room, Perelman 418, 133 S. 36th St.
Contrary to commercial peace theories, which predicted that economic engagement would make possible China's peaceful rise, China seems to be engaging in more militarized disputes with its neighbors and trade partners. I offer an explanation for this apparent anomaly by examining the relationship between borders, trade, and conflict in a new dataset on Chinese Foreign Relations (CFR). Conflict over unresolved territorial disputes account for 84% of Chinese uses of military force and these rates are unaffected by China's growing trade dependence with other claimants. While disputed borders have been found to depress international trade flows in other regions, they have not impeded China’s growing trade with its disputant neighbors.
