4:00pm – 5:30pm
This session will be in the spirit of a “work-in-progress” research workshop. We welcome faculty and graduate student engagement. A paper will be sent out approximately one week ahead of time, but the session will also include a short presentation.
Register here. A Zoom link will be sent to you the morning of the event.
How does China’s domestic governance shape its foreign policy ambitions and international influence? China is simultaneously a revisionist, reformer, innovator, and defender of the status quo—insisting rigidly on issues that are central to its domestic survival while showing flexibility on issues that are more peripheral. To understand this variation, Weiss develops a framework to illuminate the domestic context of China's approach to world politics, including territorial disputes, climate change, and the promotion of a world safe for autocracy.
