Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts China’s Global Engagement

China’s Global Engagement

  • May 11, 2017

Once again, ​China is ​experiencing a period of ​major transition. ​After three decades of dramatic economic ​growth and reforms​, China faces significant economic and political challenges at home while President Xi Jinping ​looks to refashion​ China’s place in the world. ​China is taking a more proactive approach to trade and related international economic affairs, a more vigorous approach to security matters, and a more focused engagement on international cultural and educational affairs. Across these diverse areas, China’s capacity—and desire—to influence events and outcomes have risen markedly. ​What have the results been to date, and what does China’s future trajectory appear to be?  To explore these questions, we are pleased to feature two FPRI Fellows, Jacques deLisle and Avery Goldstein.

Jacques deLisle is the Stephen A. Cozen Professor of Law, Professor of Political Science, and Deputy Director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania, and Director of the Asia Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. His work focuses on China’s engagement with international law and the international order and legal reform in China.

Avery Goldstein is the David M. Knott Professor of Global Politics and International Relations, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania. His research focuses on international relations, security studies, and Chinese politics.
