The Republic of Korea (ROK) is one of the non-major powers most closely interested in the nature of the hierarchical security order in East Asia and its transition, but little academic attention has been drawn to examining its diplomatic positions or policy directions as it responds to and shapes the regional security order. Drawing on realist insights into order transition and their implications for security relations between major and non-major powers, this paper examines the nature of the security order in East Asia and critically discusses how the ROK's approach to order management has been of only limited success in addressing the structural risks growing out of the changing natures of the regional order. It also discusses the collective order management of its Southeast Asian neighbors as a comparable case that tackles similar risks differently. The paper concludes with a discussion of how a stronger partnership with Southeast Asia could complement the limitations of the ROK's approach to regional security order management, particularly in this time of a rapid transition to a bipolar East Asia.

The interaction between domestic politics and foreign policy has recently grasped a great deal of scholarly as well as public attention. The existing literature primarily focuses on a host of domestic actors―the president, the legislature, the media, public opinion, interest groups and political parties―and how they connect with the making of foreign policy. This paper introduces a new angle―the impact of electoral cycles on foreign policy. When politicians mull over dramatic foreign policy breakthroughs, they consider how the timing of policy achievements can help their political standing. Of particular importance to the effect of political timing is the election cycle, which presidents and lawmakers strategically consider and yet, cannot arbitrarily change in representative democracies. In this paper, I give special attention to the post-midterm election period in the United States when the sitting president attempts to make a dramatic comeback from a political setback. The three historical case studies involve the U.S. normalization of relations with former adversaries, namely China, Vietnam, and Cuba. The context of American politics provides for a convenient experimental backdrop by which politicians face elections every other year with presidential contests every four years and congressional elections in between. Dealing with such politics of time, this article offers analytical analogies while not necessarily setting out to prove causal mechanisms. This firstcut research attempts to shed a new light on the way election strategy and foreign policy are linked in representative democracies and global communities.

In the United States, the President is the principal actor in foreign policy making. This was certainly the case after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the deadliest attack on U.S. soil. In the field of international relations, however, most of the research regarding U.S. foreign policy after the 9/11 terrorist attacks have focused on evaluating or criticizing the war on terror, while the national security decisions that led to the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq have been under-researched. Previous research has left much to be desired; this research aims to unearth what empowered President Bush to make such foreign policy decisions. To do so, an analytical framework that combines cognitive and structural approaches1 has been constructed. Analyzing cognitive aspects and the factors concerning the international security environment after the 9/11 terrorist attacks adequately explains the foreign policy decisions made in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. In this light, the research reaffirms the dominance of the President in U.S. foreign policy making.

For the purpose of estimating North Korea's nuclear command and control, this study first reclassified the key variables of the previous studies into two axes: external security factors and domestic political factors. Next, it traced Pyongyang's changes in these variables after Kim Jong Un came to power, especially from the point of accelerated nuclear and missile development in 2016. Those findings led to the confirmation that the North is under elevated pressure towards the delegative model, given the security situation and the necessity for doctrine and posture upgrade. In the realm of internal political factors, it can be said that the party's control over the military has been strengthened compared to the Kim Jong Il period, and there were few specific signs that Chairman Kim and policy-making groups are more concerned about military coups or disobedience than before. Comparing this with Pakistan that has institutionalized the pre-delegation of authority to use tactical nuclear weapons, etc., the pressure imposed on North Korea toward the delegative model must be relatively greater and the pressure toward the assertive model may be smaller.
In order to verify the above theoretical discussions, this research traced the North's mention of nuclear capabilities and the composition and content of institutional devices and military exercises after Kim Jong Un came to power. This draws the conclusion that Pyongyang has been making significant efforts in recent years to respond to the changes in the major external variables discussed earlier. In particular, the North has been grappling with the time-urgency issue and repeatedly emphasized the clear distinction between tactical and strategic weapons, which can signal that Pyongyang will separate the delegative and assertive command and control models according to the type of nuclear capabilities in the near future.

The paper evaluates the key factors that have predominantly increased the maritime competition between the United States and China. The authors argue that, due to the diverging naval interests in the South and the East China Seas and the growing competition to acquire maritime security technology, the momentum of maritime rivalry has immensely escalated between the two states. Based on strategic maneuverability in maritime security, this paper evaluates the rising strategic ambiguity posed by China's anti-access area-denial (A2/AD) system vis-à-vis the United States. It further illustrates U.S. All Domain Operation (ADO) and China's rapid emergence as a maritime competitor in Asia. The evaluation demonstrates the repercussions of miscalculations and highlights that the perceived mutual rivalry has come to the point that both sides are muddling through the dynamics of misperception and security-dilemma scenario which has increased the likelihood of strategic miscalculations.

The recent Sino-Iranian agreement of March 2021 has been seen mainly in terms of its impact upon Irano-American and Irano-Chinese relations and the Middle East. This article, instead explores how this agreement affects the Indo-Chinese rivalry now occurring in South and Central Asia. It examines in great detail India's efforts to augment its position in Central Asia and how it has assigned Iran a prominent place in this campaign. Yet it failed to make the most of its chances, leaving the door open to China to step in and by this agreement undermine India's (and Russia's position) in South and Central Asia. The article focuses on trade and transportation issues as expressed in contending inter-continental trade and transport projects (the BRI and INSTC). But it concludes with an examination of the tie-in between the Sino-Iranian agreements and their overall implications of military and security issues throughout the Indian Ocean region and Central Asia. Thus, it ties together economic, trade, transportation, and security issues throughout South and Central Asia as well as the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).

North Korea has been China's socialist ally since the Korean War. Although North Korea's provocations like nuclear tests have damaged Chinese national interests, China has supported North Korea. This research project examines why China has supported North Korea by analyzing event data from the Integrated Crisis Early Warning System (ICEWS). After China became integrated in the global economy, it has regarded stability and peace much more than the strategic factors of North Korea and has not viewed North Korea as a balanced ally to help China maintain the balance of power since the 1990s. This work also attempts to examine whether or not a strategic reason still plays a role in China's approach toward North Korea. The empirical results demonstrate that when North Korea faced physical and nonphysical threats from the United States and its allies (South Korea and Japan) in Northeast Asia, China showed amicable behavior toward North Korea in order to save its buffer zone. However, China did not approach North Korea when it faced strategic disadvantages.
