ABSTRACT

China’s nonalignment has been a foreign policy since her reformation and opening up, and it is still effective for now. However, with domestic and foreign environmental changes, alliance has been fully discussed among Chinese intellectuals in recent years. This thesis deals with their discussions on alliance in three categories, namely, alliance, nonalignment and quasi-alliance. In the first category, I deal with the discussions on alliance, in which alliance is emphasized by questioning the effectiveness of current nonalignment in the process of China’s rise. In the second category, I deal with the discussions on nonalignment, in which the effectiveness of current nonalignment is supported. In the third category, I deal with the discussions on quasi-alliance, which is neither alliances nor nonalignment and is a strategic thinking in connection with China’s current diplomacy. Alliance has been criticized or supported by Chinese intellectuals using various concept and analytical skills. In this way, the discussions on alliance have been expanded. In this respect, the discussions on alliance can diversity China’s diplomatic options regardless of her foreign diplomacy. Although nonalignment has been a China’s foreign policy for now, the discussions on alliance reflect the China’s current diplomatic dilemma, and make it possible to understand Chinese intellectuals’ strategic thinking.
