Increasing Presence: Emerging Powers
Peer 1: Rob
Which is the major similarity between great states and small states? Nations which lie between small and great states are referred to as middle powers according to the Foreign Affairs Magazine. Nations that gradually improve regarding power either by economic or political methods are known as emerging powers. It is argued that regarding stages of progress, in either way middle powers could be emerging powers and opposite of the same is true. The dissimilarity between emerging powers and middle powers is that regarding development, emerging powers are ahead of middle powers (Gammeltoft, Barnard and Madhok 95-101). Studies agree to a research done in 2010, which outlined that emerging powers are sub-categories of middle powers. Nevertheless, studies have concurred that there only exists a small dissimilarity between the two levels of powers. According to the references to researches done, it is correct to state that Venezuela does not involve the US in her policies.

Are there great differences between strong powers and small powers? It has been established that strong states take place in developing international relations while middle powers stand uncertainly to decentralization. Emerging powers are nations that have democratic and decolonized governments. It is true to state that the weak powers signify poor states, which rely on foreign support and are apt to cause rivalry amid strong powers (Guillén and García-Canal 23-35). Middle powers do not allow the formation of hegemonic regulation systems related to strong nations. It has been realized that that the middle powers rely on their wealth, constancy, and self-ruled principles. Furthermore, their regional irresolute direction assists them to sustain political bonds among their neighbors. Studies affirm that most emerging nations engage in cooperation with their neighbors and have a lot of resources compared to middle powers. It has also been established that strong powers have a strong impact on international policies while small powers depend only on the support they gain to overcome economic instability.
