The learn then demands a broader dialogue of reciprocity in diplomacy (IR). in particular, IR should still comprise the damaging and extra tricky facet of reciprocity.

Example text

The lack of attention to issues is clear in structural models that focus solely on power and power distribution. 3 Arguing for the need to account for issues and their salience, Mansbach and Vasquez (1981, p. 870) claim that the realist paradigm has three main weaknesses because it considers nation-states as the only actors in the international system, considers those states to be unitary and rational actors, and assumes that there is only a single issue, power. But as differing stakes in different issues are proven to play a role in the behavior of actors in the international system, the argument about the centrality of power is weakened.

Brecher and Wilkenfeld (1997) define crisis as a situation with three necessary and sufficient conditions that all refer to as the perceptions held by policy makers. The three are a threat to basic values, recognition that there is a time pressure on the situation, and heightened probability of military involvement. All these relate to the threat and perceptions for the specific state. 8 When the first interaction happens in the domain of gains, however, loss aversion will affect the actions and decisions of leaders and a positive cycle is more likely to develop.

This project argues that when applied to models of reciprocal cycles, issue salience is more important than the issue itself, and that the symmetry or asymmetry of issue salience is crucial for the development of positive or negative cycles of interaction. More specifically, the model holds that asymmetry of issue salience often results in misperception, failure of communication, and eventually in negative cycle of interaction. This is especially true when an issue is of high saliency to one actor while the other is almost indifferent to the problem.
