By |2019-10-24T10:11:32-10:00February 26th, 2018|Categories: Faculty, College, Faculty Articles, Reeves, External Publications, news|

DKI APCSS Professor Dr. Jeffrey Reeves had an article entitled "China’s Silk Road Economic Belt Initiative: Network and Influence Formation in Central Asia" published on Taylor & Francis Online's website. Abstract This article demonstrates that, rather than constituting a new model for Central Asian international relations, the SREB’s real strategic value for China is as an organizational concept and as an influence multiplier. In recasting its Central Asian bilateral relations as part of the SREB engagement model, Beijing has overlaid a strategic-level concept to its otherwise disparate patterns of engagement. In so doing, the Xi administration has consolidated its multiple lines [...]

New Government Continues Mongolia’s Rebalance to China

By |2016-12-05T15:59:54-10:00December 5th, 2016|Categories: Faculty, College, Reeves|

Dr. Jeffrey Reeves has a new article out for The Jamestown Foundations China Brief entitled “New Government Continues Mongolia’s Rebalance to China.” In the article, Reeves discusses how a change in government has not resulted in a change in Mongolia’s economic engagement with China as prescribed in their 2010 National Security Concept.  Both the Democratic Party and now Mongolian People’s Party (MPP)-led governments employ the same rationale for pursuing closer ties with the PRC: that China provides Mongolia the best opportunity for economic development and growth. According to Reeves, “China has emerged as Mongolia’s primary source of trade, finance, investment, and [...]

By |2017-03-09T11:24:08-10:00April 11th, 2016|Categories: Faculty, College, Faculty Articles, Reeves, External Publications|

The ASAN Forum has published Dr. Jeffery Reeve’s latest article titled “Mongolia’s Place in China’s Periphery Diplomacy.” Reeves discusses how China has reprioritized the country’s foreign policy from a focus on relations with great powers to relations with peripheral countries under the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) strategy.  This strategy has a huge impact on peripheral nations including Mongolia. This change has both benefits and risks, states Reeves: “For the small, underdeveloped states on China’s borders, the new approach to periphery relations has the potential to fundamentally transform their domestic situations.” According to Reeves, “China seeks to use OBOR to establish [...]

Jeffrey Reeves, Ph.D. "Economic Statecraft, Structural Power, and Structural Violence in Sino-Kyrgyz Relations" is a new article by Dr. Jeffrey Reeves published by Asian Security. According to the publication abstract: "this article employs the concepts of structural power and structural violence to undertake a critical study of China’s use of economic statecraft toward Kyrgyzstan. The article argues that China’s reliance on economic exchange to secure its strategic ends in Kyrgyzstan has resulted in asymmetric economic exchange between the two states. Through this asymmetric exchange, China has gained influence over Kyrgyzstan’s domestic structures. Chinese structural power, in turn, contributes to [...]

Mongolia’s Counter-Terrorism Architecture: Implications for Domestic Development and Foreign Partnership

By |2014-10-06T11:19:20-10:00October 6th, 2014|Categories: Reeves|

Why would a counter terrorism policy matter in a country where terrorism isn’t a major threat?  Dr. Jeffrey Reeves looks at the long-term benefits of Mongolia’s counter terrorism law in his latest paper: “Mongolia’s Counter-Terrorism Architecture: Implications for Domestic Development and Foreign Partnership.” “For Mongolia, counter-terrorism is as much about fostering inter-agency cooperation and facilitating foreign cooperation as it is about securing the country from a largely theoretical threat,” says Reeves.  Read more online at:  https://dkiapcss.edu/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Terrorism-in-Mongolia-Reeves-Oct2014.pdf

APCSS Professor Discusses the Influence of Scholarship on Counterterrorism in China

By |2014-10-02T09:58:43-10:00October 2nd, 2014|Categories: Research, Reeves|

An article on how “Ideas and Influence: Scholarship as a Harbinger of Counterterrorism Institutions, Policies and Laws in the People’s Republic of China” by Dr. Jeffrey Reeves was just published in the “Terrorism and Political Violence” journal. In the article, Reeves demonstrates how scholarship on terrorism in China has provided the intellectual backdrop against which China's leadership has developed the country's counterterrorism institutions, policies, and laws.  He suggests that “building on the linkages between scholarship and policy-making may create potential avenues for policy reform in China's current counterterrorism architecture.” The full article is available online at http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09546553.2014.955915  Alumni, please note, that [...]

SCO: A Tenable Provider of Security in Post-2014 Central Asia?

By |2014-06-04T13:17:18-10:00June 3rd, 2014|Categories: Faculty, College, Reeves|

The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation: A Tenable Provider of Security in Post-2014 Central Asia? Can the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) service as a security provider in post-2014 Central Asia? In this article, Dr. Jeffrey Reeves discusses whether, and to what degree, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) can fill this role. His article accomplishes this by contrasting the SCO’s strengths and weaknesses against potential (and probable) insecurity in the Central Asian region following the International Security Assistance Forces’ (ISAF) planned withdrawal of the majority of its troops by the end of 2014. The article concludes with policy suggestions for the SCO’s further development [...]
