The Drivers of Chinese Foreign Policy
Wednesday, October 06, 2021 at 12:00pm to 1:30amVirtual Event
SSP Wednesday Seminar with speaker Arne Westad, Yale University.
Over the past decade China’s foreign policy has become significantly more assertive, both in a regional and a global context. What are the drivers for this change? What is the interplay between ideological and perceptual changes and bureaucratic politics? Are there clear links between China’s domestic challenges and its foreign policy behavior? And how do we best evaluate change in Chinese foreign policy, given the increasing difficulties with getting information from within the system itself?
