The key query on China’s rise is how it will interact with the rest of the world. This paper discusses China’s rise by engaging with the mainstream theoretical discussions in IR from the three schools of thought—liberalism, realism, and constructivism. From an analytical perspective, this paper examines these existing theoretical discussions on the rise of China, evaluates their arguments, and compares their reasoning logic. Finally, this paper suggests that China being a revisionist power is often an overexaggerated claim lacks convincing evidence. In fact, throughout the years, China’s behaviors in global governance imply a tendency to climb-up within the existing status quo, rather than overthrowing or replacing it.</p> Ka Leung Andy Li Copyright (c) 2023 Ka Leung Andy Li 2023-09-21 2023-09-21 9 2 1 11 10.52941/jad.v9i2.45 The Relationship Between Economic Growth and Foreign Direct Investment in the Philippine Economy <p>Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) serves as a financial provider to some countries who experience sluggish economy.

The findings showed that only one variable have significant effect on Foreign Direct Investments. Stock market is highly significant impact by FDI, as shown by their p-values below the 5% level of significance. This research study conclude that Economic Growth has a significant relationship to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). This means that 1 unit of GDP will increase FDI to 0.08%.
