States, International Organizations and Strategic Partnerships

Edited by Lucyna Czechowska, Andriy Tyushka, Agata Domachowska, Karolina Gawron-Tabor and Joanna Piechowiak-Lamparska

In post-Cold War international relations, strategic partnerships are an emerging and distinct analytical and political category critical in understanding the dynamics of contemporary strategic cooperation between states and International Organizations. However, the idea of strategic partnerships has remained under-theorized and overshadowed by the alliance theory. Addressing this clear-cut gap in the International Relations/Foreign Policy Analysis literature, this book originally endeavors to theorize and empirically test the analytical model of strategic partnerships as a new form of sustainable international cooperation in times of globalized interdependence and turbulence.

Chapter 15: The development vs. geo-economics nexus in the CAN–China interactionism

Andriy Tyushka


The Andean Community–China partnership is an example of relationship that, in spite of its great potential, falls short of delivering much and of actually enduring. This is a relationship that builds upon the relevance of China for economic development of the Andean sub-region, and the wider South American region’s relevance to China’s revisionist and power-politically competitive agendas – a relationship where development needs meet geo-economics. Subsequently, the Sino-Andean bilateralism is not strategic per se but rather strategically complementary. It is where and why the cooperation potential and will hardly transcend the structural and domestic constraints, not to mention the ‘significant others’. This chapter seeks to explore the path and form of cooperation between the Andean Community and China, as well as to explain the challenges to its development and sustainability.
