INR2001 Notes 2/5/16  Power: Capacity to get other states to align with your intents. o Capacity: your means or way to get what you want. o Power is reciprocal: each side brings something to this relationship  A influences B and B influences A  Power is reciprocal but has an asymmetrical relationship. o Power is variable, usually (but not limited to) military capacity. o Competitions are about influence o Arranging things conducive to one’s own interests  Ex. Arms and Space race between the U.S. and Russia was a demonstration of power.  Power is what people perceive it to be o There is a difference between real/actual power and potential for power. o No single component of power is enough/can’t be thought of as independent.  Components of power are dynamic (always changing) not static. o Subjective: a bomb is power, determinant of military capacity, threat to others, etc. (interpreted) o Objective: a bomb is a bomb to blow something up (not interpreted). o Reputation of power: Decline/Incline in prestige invites challenge or opportunity to be challenged.  Ex. Cuban Missile Crisis:  President Kennedy warrants no one arms Cuba Russia ignores this and puts missiles in Cuba as a means to show power over U.S.  Challenges Monroe Doctrine—makes the U.S. look bad psychological game of reputation that almost led to nuclear war.  Power relations: perception of opposition is important in relationships with other states. 1. Conflict of interest; needed in order to exert power over another state. a. If A & B agree, no power is needed. 2. B complies with A’s demands; goal of A is to get B to do something B wouldn’t do on its own or doesn’t want to do. 3. Cost of compliance for B is less than the cost of resistance (rational choice). a. In this instance, B must believe A’s threat or believes them to be powerful enough to carry it out. 4. If differences are extreme and stakes for both are high, force is more likely to be exerted/needed to defend oneself. a. Use of force doesn’t guarantee attainment of objectives. b. “Carrots & Sticks” coercion using positive inducements and negative punishments to get someone to comply with your objective.  Ideal foreign police: having what you need to get what you want o Means = Ends o If you don’t have this, you reach your goals by either increasing your capabilities or decreasing your desires= Means ↑or Ends↓
