The Political Economy of Engagement

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Hard Target

Stephan Haggard

Marcus Noland

Stanford University Press

This chapter reviews the theoretical literature on the effectiveness of sanctions and inducements, with a particular emphasis on the latter. It distinguishes between quid pro quo models of engagement and more transformative models. With respect to the former, the chapter walks through coordination and bargaining problems as well as how the effectiveness of sanctions is affected by characteristics of the target state. It also calls into question the logic of transformative engagement with respect to certain types of authoritarian regimes, and provides an historical review of diplomacy around the Korean peninsula since 1990.

Keywords:   economic statecraft, sanctions, inducements, foreign policy, nuclear weapons, proliferation, authoritarian regimes, engagement
