This thesis examines the role of Northeast Asian (NEA) IR within Global IR, assessing how NEA can foster a more inclusive IR dialogue. The thesis uses an inductive methodology to analyze discourse in a comprehensive review of 100 articles, balanced between Global IR and NEA IR theories. The research employs a novel "Dining Table Model" to categorize existing literature into five distinct types, each reflecting a unique approach to addressing core-periphery dynamics within IR. Additionally, a new "geocultural orientation avenue" is proposed, focusing on the historical and cultural dimensions of IR theories. The findings reveal NEA's potential to enrich global IR discourse by promoting diversity and inclusiveness. This research encourages ongoing regional and inter-regional dialogue, reflecting a shift towards a multiplex world order and aiming to motivate future scholars to keep on delving into the diverse landscapes of IR theory.

这篇论文探讨了东北亚国际关系理论(NEA IR)在全球国际关系(Global IR)中扮演的角色,评估东北亚如何促进更具包容性的国际关系对话。论文采用归纳方法,通过综合回顾100篇文章(全球国际关系和东北亚国际关系理论文章各占一半)来分析话语。研究采用创新的“餐桌模型 (Dining Table Model)”对现有文献进行分类,将其划分为五种独立的类别,每种类别都反映了一种独特的方法来处理国际关系中的核心-边缘现状。此外,文章还提出了一种新的“地缘文化取向途径(Geocultural Orientation Avenue)”,专注于国际关系理论的历史和文化背景维度。研究结果显示,东北亚有潜力通过促进多样性和包容性来丰富全球国际关系话语。这项研究鼓励持续的区域内和区域间对话,反映了向多元世界秩序的转变,并旨在激励未来学者继续深入探讨国际关系理论多样化的前景。
