MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation represents a theory-guided research on China’s nonproliferation export control development from 1994 to 2004. The research was conducted according to case study method. By interviewing Chinese export control officials and scholars and reading through literature on nonproliferation export controls, China’s nonproliferation export control development has been systematically measured by using the methodology developed by the Center for International Trade and Security at the University of Georgia. China’s nonproliferation export control is the research dependent variable. Two independent variables, the US and the MECAs, have been identified and analyzed. Over the last decade, China has developed a domestic export control system that is more comparable with the international standards. The United States and the Multilateral Export Control Arrangements have played significant roles in China’s nonproliferation export control development.
