Abstract

Abstract:

While previous applications of liberal peace theory examine the effect of economic ties on the onset of militarized dispute, this paper studies the ways in which trade dependence between China and Taiwan effects the nature of all cross-Strait interactions-both conflictual and cooperative. The results of this study contradict liberalism's null hypothesis that trade cannot directly affect political relations. This study concludes that for cross-Strait relations, economic ties and Taiwan's presidential elections affect cross-Strait relations, albeit in the opposite direction of that suggested by liberal peace theory.
