Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to assess the non-violent instruments of statecraft that will likely be of greater and lesser value to the United States over the next ten years. Rather than trying to make sweeping generalizations that could apply to all of the United States foreign relations, this paper will examine the value of non-violent instruments of statecraft to one critical concern United States relations with China. The rationale for this case study approach is that the value of each of the non-violent instruments of statecraft can vary greatly depending on the context. Instruments that are appropriate for relations between the United States and a friendly, democratic, industrialized market economy country may not be as appropriate for relations with a non-aligned, authoritarian, developing country.
