The rise of China over the past four decades, in terms of both pace and scale, is unarguably phenomenal. Against the backdrop of this rapid change, the international community has been concerned whether China would repeat the bloody history of rising powers. China itself has also been consistently looking for a path to avoid both the Thucydides Trap and domestic turmoil, while fuelling its development ambition.
Professor Wang will share his views on the latest developments in China’s diplomacy, particularly regarding the relations between China and its neighbouring countries and discuss the possibility of China providing more international public goods.
Professor Wang Yizhou is an expert in China’s diplomacy and international relations, and his work has been translated into many foreign languages. His concept of Creative Involvement has widely influenced discussions on China’s foreign policy among academics and policymakers.
