Explaining Varying Asian ResponsesÂ to China: Strategic Evolution in theÂ Cases of Japan, Korea, and Thailand
Domestic strategic preferences among state elites to prioritizeÂ economic and technological facets of national security haveÂ played a significant role in shaping the foreign policies of many AsianÂ nations. This paper considers the role that elite preferences for economicÂ and technological strengthâ€”preferences which are embedded andÂ institutionalized in domestic political structuresâ€”played in shapingÂ the security and economic policy responses of Japan, Korea, andÂ Thailand towards China between 1992 and 2008. In all three countries, prioritization of national security in economic terms led elites to perceiveÂ threats through economic and/or development lenses. Domestic strategicÂ evolution caused preferences to change over time, leading elites toÂ confront Chinaâ€™s rising military and economic power in different ways.
