25 Promises & Achievements Promises: independence, liberty, happiness Achievements: Defeat of colonial and imperial forces Formation of independent nation-states

26 Not a panacea for all problems Only formal national independence Independent nations but weak states Independence for large ethnic groups but not for many ethnic minorities Unresolved border issues Poverty, inequality, economic stagnation

27 Legacies of nationalist mobilization Popular myths Intense personal & communal experiences By-products: military or personal rule, communist dictatorship, one-party authoritarian system

28 Country Regime type Singapore One-party authoritarian rule Malaysia One-party authoritarian rule South Korea Personal rule ( ), military rule ( ) Taiwan Military/one-party rule ( ) Thailand Military rule ( , 76-88) Indonesia Personal & military rule ( ) Philippines Personal dictatorship ( ) Burma/Myanmar Military rule ( ) China Communist dictatorship (1949- ) Vietnam Communist dictatorship (1954/1975- ) Cambodia Communist dictatorship ( ) Laos Communist dictatorship (1975- )

29 Nationalism, War, and Affluence Rank by national income (2000) Nationalist wars? 1 Singapore No 2 Taiwan No 3 South Korea Yes 4 Malaysia No 5 Thailand No 6 China Yes 7 Philippines No 8 Indonesia Yes 9 Vietnam Yes 10 Cambodia Yes 11 Laos Yes 12 Burma/Myanmar Yes

30 End of Cold War in communist countries Opened up room for new identities Religious revivalism Money creed National pride/humiliation Allowed economic development, liberalization & democratization Rise of civil society Cambodia

31 In anti-communist countries Democratization: Taiwan: native Taiwanese political power S. Korea: rise of the left Thailand: rise of farmers power Indonesia: rise of Islam Philippines: fall of Marcos dictatorship Impact of mass politics:

32 Rise of China Top down nationalism (since 1990s) Century of humiliation The Chinese dream (since 2012) Assertive policy on territorial issues Popular nationalism (since 2000s)

33 Favorable view of US, China, Japan (2014) Viewed in Favorable view of the US Favorable view of China Favorable view of Japan Japan 69% 5% -- South Korea % Indonesia Malaysia Philippines Vietnam China

35 Effects of new nationalisms Uniting compatriots divided by Cold War ideologies Arms race, tensions, possible border wars Future democratization Ma Ying-jeou (KMT) & Xi Jinping (CCP) (11/2015)

36 Ways to improve stability Change the ways patriotism is taught Acknowledge popular nationalist sentiments as legitimate Involve civil society in national, bilateral, and multilateral discussions to the extent possible

37 China, SE Asia & the South China Sea

38 China & SE Asia: Born for each other? China Population: 1.2 b. Size of economy: $11.4 T ASEAN s largest trade partner (US is 4 th place) Interests in SE Asia: mineral resources & markets for Chinese goods & services Communist dictatorship Lots of cash & willing to offer deals Willing to befriend dictators Southeast Asia Population: 600 m. Size of economy: $2.4 T China s 3rd largest trade partner Interests in China: loans, aid, investment in infrastructure & mining Most ranked high in corruption but low in political freedom and human rights Majority one-party regimes; a few weak democracies

39 Historical legacies Premodern China was regional hegemon Premodern rivalries among middle powers: Konbaung, Chakri, Nguyen, etc. Substantial Chinese migration US colonization of Philippines ( ) US involvement in war against communism in Indochina Sino-Vietnamese-Cambodian war ( )

40 ASEAN s dilemma Not all members view China as a threat Some suspicious of the US Intense China s diplomatic pressure Concerned but unable to unite against China

41 Vietnam s complex modern history Communists seized power & led a national and social revolution since 1945 Allied with Soviet Union & China against US & anti-communist South Vietnam (1950s-70s) Allied with Soviet Union against US-China- ASEAN (1980s)

42 Post-Cold War evolution Since mid-1980s: economic but not political reform Foreign & defense policy: Normalization with China, US, ASEAN Expansion of foreign economic relations Leaders worldview until ~2010: China is ideological comrade & strategic ally US is strategic enemy

43 Politburo, 1993 In international relations, [our policy] to be friends of all nations in the world community is designed to take advantage of shared interests in concrete issues and concrete policy areas with other nations For the sake of our mission to develop socialism and defend our fatherland, we place friends in different categories, with some closer and others far. By their nature, our long-term allies are the socialist forces (or countries), the communist and worker parties, and movements for national independence and revolutionary and progressive causes. A friend of all nations, but

44 2014 shock & adjustment

45 Hanoi s dilemma China Socialist brother Historical debts Largest trade partner United States Largest export market A partner to counter China s threat Threat to territory & security Nationalist protests & pressure Imperialist power Historical enmity Threat to the communist regime

46 Philippines Historically love-hate relations with the US Presidents make foreign policy Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo Benigno Aquino III Rodrigo Duterte

47 Manila swings President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo ( ) Visited China 12 times Signed Joint Maritime Seismic Undertaking with China to explore oil in contested areas Encouraged Chinese investment President Benigno Aquino III ( ) Confronted China in the South China Sea Signed Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement with US

48 President Rodrigo Duterte ( ) Local strongman, populist-leftist politician Engage China, challenge US

49 I will not go to America any more. We will just be insulted there. So, time to say goodbye, my friend. "I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world - China, Philippines, and Russia. It's the only way." Duterte (Beijing, Oct 2016)

50 Dilemma China Important source of capital & aid for development Important trade partner Threat to territorial sovereignty US & Japan Traditional sources of aid & capital Primary trading partners Elites keep strong economic & cultural ties Past resentment

51 Cambodia Ruling Cambodia People s Party (CPP) has long-term ties with Vietnam CPP dominates politics since 1997 coup PM Hun Sen (since 1985)

52 Deeply dependent on foreign aid & investment China has replaced US as primary benefactor since coup Strong & pro-western opposition party exploits nationalist claims against Vietnam CNRP Leader Sam Rainsy

53 Dilemma China Primary trading partner Largest source of aid, FDI, loans, military assistance Support the ruling party & disregard for repression against the opposition Help balance against Vietnam & Thailand--not a target of popular nationalism The US & Japan Important sources of aid & investment Largest markets for Cambodian garments Critical of the ruling party for repression & human rights violations Unable or unwilling to provide military assistance
