PKU - The Rise of China and Change in World Politics
4 July – 29 July 2022
Hosted by Peking University
The rise of China is one of the most important and defining themes in changing world politics. This seminar course is intended to allow students to examine major issues and topics concerning the rise of China from a broad theoretical perspective, and to engage in the academic discourse and policy debate about the implications of China’s rise for world politics. The seminar is organised around the central question – what kind of change will China’s rise bring to the international system? – and is roughly divided into three parts: (1) China’s rise and the ‘paradigm change’ in world politics; (2) China’s quest for national identity and rejuvenation; and (3) the impacts of China rising on world order. Under each of these sections, a few specific topics are identified for class discussion.
