Abstract

This article evaluates the effectiveness of the Box Territorial Unification Negotiation Diagram (BTUN-Diagram) in the evaluation of any territorial unification negotiation between two or more territories anywhere and anytime. We used the BTUN-Diagram to evaluate the possible unification of China and Taiwan as it provides a much deeper analysis and interpretation of what unification of the two territories entail. The BTUN-Diagram extends the study of territorial unification beyond the common economic implication of unification as observed in many studies by widening the scope of the study through a multidisciplinary approach. Given the huge gaps that exist in the China-Taiwan unification drawn from our analysis, we observed more divergence than convergence given the huge cost likely to be borne by a unifying party. We suggest very serious and purposeful negotiations could bring about trade-offs that may institute an equilibrium point in the territorial unification negotiation.
