China’s use of its growing power

On Wednesday 30th April 2014 Professor CHEN Zhimin, Dean of the School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University, China, presented a seminar to over 120 people on How China uses its growing power in the foreign policy debate both in China and around the world. This seminar covered what factors are included in China’s power resources? How should China apply these resources? Does the way that China applies its resources have any of its own characteristics, especially compared with other major international actors? What goals should the power strategy serve – to defend or shield China from external interference or to shape the outside world and how its future power strategy will evolve?
