Introduction

The trend of empirical approaches in international relations is thriving. As David Lake pointed out, the focus of international relations as a discipline has shifted from the Great Debates, which drew heavily on the issues of paradigms, ontology, and epistemology, to mid-theory, which concerns more on specific issues or cases in a given historical period (2013: 571-572). In the field of security studies, the dialogue between theoretical concepts and historical cases has become a prominent approach. Standing on the shoulder of grand theories, concepts have been applied to states’ choices on foreign policy for explaining the cases or for testing theories, which is fruitful in various domains, including the development of signaling theory, the balance of power theory, and alliance theory. The case studies with applying concepts from grand theories have not only deepened our understanding of specific historical periods but also fed back to revise and to sophisticate the theory.
Buck-passing is one of the concepts that provide great explanations of historical cases. By the feedback from testing with cases, buck-passing becomes a more relevant concept in international relations theory. The concept was conceptualized from the prediction made by structural realism at first, and later scholars employed the idea as a generalized type of foreign policy. Buck-passing now becomes one of the main defensive strategies in offensive realism, a late school of the realist family, and the concept has been applied to analyze more cases such as the history of western major wars, Japan’s security policy, and the US foreign policy.
Although buck-passing has become a prominent concept, buck-passing as a commonly-used theoretical concept is suffering from the lack of internal coherence and external differentiation. There is no well-acknowledged definition of buck-passing, and scholars conceptualize buck-passing with different definitions, scopes, and criteria. The line between buck-passing and other defensive strategies such as appeasement or distancing is blurred as well. This leads to contradicted explanations of a single case, and they could be unproductive because we cannot assure that the difference comes from the case as an anomaly or simply the different usage of a single concept. This situation could be improved by a clearly-defined and explicitly-elaborated conceptualization of buck-passing.
The thesis is aiming to propose a unified framework of buck-passing, which is potent to serve both the analysis of historical cases and the investigation of current international politics. The thesis is planned to be composed of three parts. The first part is the literature review of buck-passing, summarizing the theories of buck-passing and pointing out the differences among them and issues that require further examination. Second, based on the past development, a revised theory of buck-passing would be proposed, which aims to define the concept more clearly and to elaborate the necessary elements of buck-passing. The third part would be the case studies for testing where the revised buck-passing theory is different from the past theories.
The core research question of the thesis is “how can the concept of buck-passing be refined?”. To cope with this question, the following sub-questions should be answered:
․ What are the main findings of past buck-passing theories and the issues that have been overlooked?
․ Where does the revised buck-passing theory differ from past theories? Why the difference matters?
․ How would the revised theory explain the historical cases? Do the historical cases support the revised theory?


Research Design

The thesis is planned to be constituted by three parts. The first part is the literature review of buck-passing theory. The literature review’s object should include the critical works of buck-passing theory and the historical studies that apply buck-passing. The section should be able to provide an overview of the development of buck-passing theory, the deficiencies of the current theory, and where we can start to progress.
The second part of the thesis would present a refined theoretical framework of buck-passing. The framework is aimed to propose a comprehensive theory of buck-passing that further examined the overlooked issues in current literature. The framework should cover the following parts.
The operationalization of buck-passing: including the operational definition of buck-passing and why the proposed operational definition could contribute to better identifying buck-passing behaviors from historical cases and on better identifying buck-passing from other strategies.
The theory of buck-passing: examining the critical components of buck-passing theory, which comprises the goal of buck-passing, the actors of buck-passing, the scope of involved parties, the factors facilitating buck-passing, the effects of buck-passing, the relationship between buck-passing and international system (multipolarity and bipolarity), the possible outcomes of buck-passing, and the possible scenarios of buck-passing. Overlooked by past works, buck-passing in bipolarity would be the emphasis in this section. I would suggest a new status of a state—regional great power. Mearsheimer (2001: 40-41) correctly notices the difference between the global level and the regional level, claiming that the regional hegemon is the best outcome since the global hegemon is unachievable due to the stopping power of water. If the status of hegemon has different variations on the global level and the regional level, so does the status of great power. If a distant regional hegemon is unable to exercise its full power in another region, the local power residing in that region does not need the same scale of power to balance against the distant regional hegemon. This kind of state could be called a regional great power, and they are competent to be the buck-catcher when facing aggression from a distant regional hegemon.
The relationship between buck-passing and other strategies: by clarifying the concepts and theory of buck-passing, the external differentiation of buck-passing should be improved. Balancing and bandwagoning both held identifiable actions for differentiating: the former requires deploying military power to contain the aggressor, and the latter join the aggressor. The confusing part is the overlapped between buck-passing and appeasement since low confrontational or passive actions are both depicted as the actions of these two strategies. A suggestion is to position appeasement not as a strategy that has its own unique theory, action, and outcome but an outcome when no defensive state is willing to contain the aggressor, namely to catch the buck. Putting appeasement as the outcome of failed buck-passing is also reasonable on the theoretical dimension: if there could be a successful buck-passing, a state would not choose to appease since the cost of adopting buck-passing would be lower; appeasement would only occur when buck-passing fails.
Case studies would be the third part of the thesis. There are two goals of the case studies section. The first goal is to demonstrate how the proposed theory can be operated in a historical case and where the proposed theory is refined comparing with the past theories. To satisfy the need, World War II would be an appropriate option. The case of World War II involved a number of great powers, and the interaction between the involved states could be a good test for most dimensions of my theory. World War II is also a popular case of buck-passing related studies, which would let the difference between the proposed theory and the past theories more visible. The object of the case study would mainly be the interaction among Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and Germany at the interwar period after 1934, the year Hitler fully acquired dictatorship. It would be focused on how European powers reacted to Nazi Germany as a rising potential hegemon, specifically around the German rearmament and the Munich agreement. The mutual concern of preemption in the German–Soviet Union relations before Operation Barbarossa would be investigated as well.
The second goal of the case studies section is to show a case of buck-passing in bipolarity, which has been ignored by current literature. The Korean War should be a qualified case. The Korean War happened in the period of the Cold War, a typical case of bipolarity. The object of the Korean War case study would be the interaction between China, the Soviet Union, and the US after the US army crossing the 38th parallel north on China’s decision of sending troops into the Korean Peninsula. From the perspective of China, the US after crossing the 38th parallel north for conquering the whole Korean Peninsula was deemed as aggression. The Soviet Union and China shared the collective good as defending the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and expelling the US army out of the Korean Peninsula, yet the Soviet Union at the end only took very limited effort to balance against the US, passing the buck to China. China did catch the buck, sent large troops into the Korean Peninsula, and successfully ensured the survival of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. In the Korean War case, the rationale behind states’ decisions and the explanation from the sight of buck-passing theory would be examined.


Expected Results

The expected results are listed as follows:
1. Sketching the whole picture of the current development of buck-passing theory.
2. Proposing a new buck-passing theoretical framework with more clarity, operationality, and external differentiation.
3. Revising the current understanding of no buck-passing taking place in bipolarity
4. Testing the new buck-passing theoretical framework with cases of World War II and the Korean War
5. Providing an in-depth explanation of World War II and the Korean War by the illumination of the new buck-passing theoretical framework
