China is increasingly taking a prominent place on the global stage. And the country’s leaders intend to take its foreign policy and international engagement to new levels with initiatives, such as the Asian Infrastructural investment Bank and the One Belt One Road project, that aim to proactively shape regional political landscape.
But there are many questions about the country’s new international role: What are China’s strengths and weaknesses in developing international influence? Can China develop international regimes and institutions with good governance? Can China develop ideas to attract international followers? Niklas L.P. Swanström will attempt to address these questions in a discussion about China’s rise to global power.
