Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is based on the problematic relating to a possible boycott of the Olympic games in China. In the light of the problems China has observing the human right convention, a boycott of the Olympic games seams obvious. However, we believe that other aspects than moral considerations are important when taking a decision on a possible boycott. Large scale trade across frontiers has created economic interpedendens among the countries involved. In addition China undergoes an enormous development which in the long term means that they will have a hegemony status. Thus USA loses its role as the world’s policeman, and a boycott will not be possible. Therefore, we have made an analysis of the economic and political relations between China and USA to investigate how strong the interdependens is between the countries. We have concluded that the Olympic games merely are a small pawn in a large economic and political game and that the expenses of a boycott will be too heavy for USA.
