Venue: Tencent Online Meeting (Conference code: 661 934 594, Password: 1119)
Abstract: Against the backdrop of a rising China, the geopolitics of the future relationship between China and the rest of international community has received a great deal of attention. Many international observers worry that the growth in economic power of China could translate into a resurgent Chinese foreign policy that would seek to alter the status quo in the region and beyond. In this presentation, the Chinese attitude towards international law and international institutions and what role China is intending to play in global economic governance will be examined to this end.
