ABSTRACT

This paper is an analysis of the effectiveness of the unification plan(‘One country, Two systems’) of the China. To this end, This paper reviewed China’s intentions and implementation process to achieve the unification of the China as a way to promote ‘One country, Two systems’ Plan through Hong Kong case and Taiwan case. As an alternative model that can replace the China unification plan, the method of supplementing the elements of the federal system, and the ‘One China, Two Constituions’, ‘One China Three Constitutions’ model method, and the neutral model method have being discussed. Chinese researchers believe that Taiwan’s concerns can be resolved by supplementing the elements of the federal system while maintaining the framework of the national system. Taiwanese unification scholars admit China, and argue that unification is possible if the model guarantees Taiwan’s autonomy as a constitution. American Researchers and Taiwanese independents argue scholars that models of neutral nations such as Switzerland and Finland can be used to prevent war on both sides and maintain peace. However, in international politics, the realization of the‘One country, Two systems’ Plan and the alternative model will ultimately depend on the national power and attitudes of the three actors(that is China, America and Taiwan).
