Abstract

Abstract:

China’s intellectuals in the reform era have had significant impact on the country’s foreign policy. The existing literature, however, shows a lack of interest in these experts’ community, even though it is important in policy formation. This article investigates the foreign- policy community, particularly the one that focuses on the Korean peninsula, from the perspective of structure and agents. Specifically, it examines which experts play a role in producing China’s discourses and to what extent, and how the experts’ relationships have shaped the community. This study is conducted utilizing social-network analysis based on the experts’ citations. The article points to the implications for interpreting the structure of China’s policy discourses.
