|English to Chinese: Political Study (Traditional Chinese)|
|Source text - English|
China’s role in international peacekeeping has greatly expanded in the Hu Jintao era and become a significant contributor to peacekeeping operations (PKOs) in Africa. The importance of the study is expressed in the view that peacekeeping intervention is a tool that strengthens or realizes policy goals in the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the UN Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), and the UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). China has considerable interests at stake in Africa, whether to promote economic cooperation or gain access to natural resources. In order to maintain these efforts, it is imperative that a secure and stable environment is created, not only to maintain diplomatic relations with its African partners, but also to give expression to the harmonious worldview and peaceful development concepts, which rose to prominence under the presidency of Hu Jintao. With this in mind, the purpose of this study is to examine the extent to which peacekeeping intervention contributes to China’s relations with these countries. Two models are employed to shed light on this thesis. The rational actor model (RAM) developed by Graham Allison is used to explain the goals for each country, the options considered to reach the goals, the consequences or outcomes of choice that will ensure if a particular option is chosen and selecting that option whose consequences rank highest in the leadership’s payoff function. However, the leadership in policy formulation does not always act in a unitary fashion and oftentimes needs the input of governmental actors to produce results in decisionmaking. Therefore, the bureaucratic politics model (BPM) of Allison indicates the bargaining, influencing and compromising positions of the bureaucracy that reinforced the rational decisions of the leadership. The main findings are that peacekeeping intervention adds value to China’s goals, serve as mechanism to facilitate cooperation, and regarding the role of the bureaucracy, reinforces the resolve of the leadership in sending troops to the mission areas.
Keywords: China, Peacekeeping Operations, Decisionmaking, Motivations, Rational Actor Model, Bureaucratic Politics Model.

中國在國際維持和平行動中的作用在胡錦濤時代得到極大的拓展，並成為非洲維持和平行動的一個重要貢獻者。這項研究的重要性是體現維持和平干預是一個工具的觀點，這個工具強化或實現聯合國駐利比裡亞特派團（聯利特派團），聯合國駐剛果民主共和國穩定特派團（聯剛特派團），和非洲联盟 -聯合國駐達爾富爾混合行动特派團 (非聯達特派團) 的政治目標 。無論是促進經濟合作或者是獲得自然資源，中國在非洲有相當大的利益股份。為了維持這些努力，當務之急是建立一個安全和穩定的環境，這不僅是與非洲的合作夥伴保持外交關係，，也同時表達和諧的世界觀和和平發展的理念，這世界觀和理念在胡錦濤主席時代上升到突出地位。鑑於此，本研究的目的是研究在多大程度上維持和平干預措施有助於中國與這些國家的關係。這篇論文運用了兩個模型來研究。格雷厄姆阿利森開發的理性行為模型（ RAM ）被用來解釋每個國家的目標，要達到目標可選擇的措施，採用一項措施的成效和后果，如果這個特定的能給予領導能力最高回報的措施要達到的成效和后果能得到保証。然而，制定政策的領導並不總是按一個統一的方式行事，在作決策時常常需要考慮政府官員的意見。因此，艾裡遜的官僚政治模型（ BPM ）顯示官僚政治的討價還價，權勢影響和妥協立場對領導理性決策的增強作用。本研究的主要結論是維持和平干預對中國的目標增加價值，維持和平干預可作為促進合作的機制，而官僚政治的作用則可以加強領導出兵任務區的決心。

I am a native Chinese and have lived in both China and the United States of America (USA) for decades, and earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in China and Ph.D. in USA. I have a very good mastery of both Chinese (mandarin, simplified, traditional, and Cantonese) and English, and have been translating in this pair of languages my whole life for my education (through Ph.D.), work (scientific), and in my daily life. I have a doctoral in science and work experience in different fields for more than 40 years. I have expert knowledge in the earth and environmental science and technology and have published many books and articles of technical and scientific research both in Chinese and English. These expert knowledge and skills will benefit me in difficult, technical translations.
