Analysis of the foreign policy of the country through its determinants, structure and instruments - potential research scenarios
(Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu Mikołaja Kopernika, 2020) Adamczyk, Marcin; Rutkowska, Patrycja; Uniwersytet Wrocławski; Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu
The main objective of this article is to present potential research opportunities offered by the analysis of conditions, structure and instruments of the foreign policy of the country. The secondary objective is to present several potentially interesting research scenarios using the presented approach. For the purpose of these analyses, selected definitions of foreign policy functioning in the mainstream of Polish science (by leading researchers of international relations) and included in English-language publications of renowned foreign publishers will be presented. Then, an author's definition of foreign policy will be proposed based on these publications. In the following subsections there will be a presentation of foreign policy selected by the elements of foreign policy analysis in the form of its determinants, structure and instruments. In their research, the authors used secondary research material in the form of scientific articles in Polish and English. The method used in the research is the method of content analysis.

The Clash Between China and the United States and Security in the Asia-Pacific Region - A Security Dilemma, a Balance of Power, and the Bandwagon Effect
(Wydawnictwo Adam Marszałek, 2021) Adamczyk, Marcin; Rutkowska, Patrycja; Uniwersytet Wrocławski; Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu
This article is an attempt to answer the question about the security situation in the Asia-Pacific region. The authors decided to verify the authenticity of the thesis that Asia witnessed the birth of a new security dilemma based on the data on the amount of defence spending among the key countries of the region (China, the United States, Japan, Russia, Pakistan, Australia and India). The second thesis that the authors want to confirm or reject is that there is a coalition in the Asia-Pacific area that is creating a balance of power and, at the same time, a growing number of countries that want to join the PRC. To this end, the authors have used a content analysis method and a comparative method. The first chapter is a brief description of the theoretical framework of the article in the form of a realistic current in international relations and security research and an explanation of the concepts of power balance, security dilemma and bandwagoning applied. The second chapter presents data on the defence spending of the most important actors in the region. In the third chapter, which is a substitute for a conclusion, the authors will analyze the situation in the Asia-Pacific region using the previously presented theoretical approach and empirical data.

Krytyczna analiza postzimnowojennych relacji chińsko-indyjskich w perspektywie realizmu strukturalnego
(Wydawnictwo Adam Marszałek, 2019) Adamczyk, Marcin; Rutkowska, Patrycja; Uniwersytet Wrocławski; Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu
Our article is an attempt to answer the question of whether it is possible for two neighbouring countries, which aspire at the same time to the role of superpowers, to cooperate and have peaceful relations with each other. In order to answer this question, we intend to prove the thesis that the state of China-India relations, despite the appearance of good neighbourly relations, is defined by growing security problems. In order to do this, we intend to conduct a system-level analysis based on the current of structural realism in international relations using historical and comparative methods. The aim of this article is to critically analyze China-Indian relations in the post-Cold War period. At the same time, we intend to show that the thriving diplomatic relations between New Delhi and Pakistan are in fact a façade concealing poorly functioning economic relations and, above all, a number of security problems. The first chapter is a brief description of the theoretical framework of the article in the form of a realistic current in international relations and security research and an explanation of the applied concepts of power balance, security dilemma and bandwagoning. The second and third chapters are a brief description and analysis of political and economic relations after the Cold War. In chapter four, we identify the leading security issues in India-China relations. In summary, we try to answer the research question and confirm the thesis.
