    Abstract: 隨著中國經濟實力的崛起,國際的目光也跟著移轉到了亞洲地區。中國周遭的鄰國和世界各地的國家,無一不揣測著中國的下一步棋會怎麼走,以及對他們會帶來什麼樣子的影響。對於「中國將如何對國際社會做出貢獻,以及他所追求的利益是什麼?」這個問題,如今身處二十一世紀的我們,始終未有任何答案。當我們想到西方國家時,第一個浮現出的便是他們所倡導的自由主義(Liberalism),但是奉現實主義(Realism)為圭臬的亞洲的政治,對外依然存在著神秘感且戒心重重。現實主義代表著權力、安全、以及自身利益。在現實主義的準則之下,中國以現有的能耐,不僅能夠讓位於中國直接勢力影響圈裡的亞洲國家於危險的處境之外,還能夠藉由多米諾骨牌效應(the domino effect),將無法預期且極具侵略性的中國式鐵腕政治(Hard Politics of China)帶到世界的各個角落。

    有鑑於此,進一步地探討中國所追求的經濟和地緣政治利益,可以讓我們更明瞭以及更好地預測中國於國際間的作為。然而,中國的不可預測性讓評估中國利益的這項任務變得十分困難。中國政府總是會對其他國家釋出模稜兩可的訊息(mixed signals),使得參與中國外交政策的國家時常模不著頭緒。中國的官方說法是中國正遵循著軟實力的執行外交政策,但是中國的行為卻顯露出種種硬實力外交的跡象。

    With the rise of economic power of China, all eyes of international community had turned to Asian region. Direct neighbors of China and other countries from all over the world question themselves about the next move of China, and how this giant will influence them. In the twenty-first century, the question remains unanswered: how China will contribute to the international society and what are its interests? Thinking of Western countries, we think of Liberalism, however in Asia politics remain secretive and defensive, and still fall under the theory of Realism. Realism means power, security, and self-interest. This type of approach combined with China’s capabilities can create a dangerous situation not only for countries in Asia, that fall under the direct zone of influence of China, but also other countries, no matter how distant they are, the unpredictable and aggressive Hard Politics of China can trigger the domino effect that can touch many counties.
    That is why, further study of China’s interests (economic and geopolitical) can bring us closer to understanding and predicting to some degree China’s actions in international arena. The problematic part in assessment China’s interests lies in China’s unpredictability. The government of China sends mixed signals to other countries of international community, that greatly confuses those who are involved in China’s Foreign Policy. Official stand is that China is following Soft Power approach, however actions reveal still strong siding with Hard Power.
    In this thesis, I have chosen three neighbors of China (Russia, Japan, and South Korea) to investigate and research the interests that China sees in these countries- economic, political or/and security, and depending on the degree of interest involved for China, what Foreign Policy does China introduce (Hard or Soft Power approach) to deal with those countries. This research will show the correlation between amount of interest and preferred area of interest of China, and the ability of China to exercise the Soft Power approach. This is vital for understanding and predicting further actions of China in international arena, as well as in Asian region, bearing in mind what represents for China the highest interest and what is the approach of China to those, who do not represent any interest for the Celestial at all.
