Abstract

Both Taiwan and South Korea are countries embracing a presidential system and their major foreign and security policy making is in the National Security Council led by the President. Against this background, exploring the political elite’s perceptions of the international environment at an idiosyncratic level is especially conducive to our understanding of their foreign policy behaviors. In this article, horizontal comparative analysis is employed to explore Chen Shui-bian China policy and Roh Moo-hyun North Korea policy. As both Taiwan and South Korea are divided nations, their foreign policies behaviour is characterized by security orientation and its relationship with the ‘other half’ and overall foreign policy are inseparable. In fact, foreign policies makers of divided nations are constantly puzzled by which policy should be regarded as the first priority. (The rest omitted)
