Think Tanks' Influence on US Foreign Policy Toward China from 1991 to 2018
2019
The thesis focuses on the role of US think tanks in agenda setting for US China policy from Clinton’s presidency up to the current Trump administration. It analyses US foreign policy discourse and think tanks' interaction with the foreign policy establishment. Since the 1990s, sustaining its hegemonic moment has been central to US Grand Strategy to enable a free flow of US capital throughout the world, and hence, opening up China’s market. The analysis identifies the role of think tanks in the tendency of polarization of current US political elite and concludes the continuation of the main objectives of US Grand Strategy despite the bifurcation in foreign policy course and its leadership.
