Interests and Ambitions of Chinese Foreign Policy

Guest lecture by Pascal Abb at the University of Göttingen


Why do conflicts and incidents repeatedly occur in the South China Sea between China and other littoral states? What interests does the Chinese leadership pursue in the region and what means does it use to enforce them? To discuss these questions, the Centre for Modern East Asian Studies (CeMEAS) at the University of Göttingen will be holding the lecture series "Foreign Policy and Security Challenges in East Asia" this summer term. The series will kick off on May 19 with a presentation by Pascal Abb, Senior Researcher in PRIF's research department "Intrastate Conflict", on the interests, ambitions, and world order conceptions of Chinese foreign policy.

Lecture: "China’s Foreign Policy: Interests, Ambitions, and Conceptions of World Order"

When: 19 May 2021, 6-8 pm
Where: Online Lecture, Attendance via Zoom

Further information on the lecture series and links to access the Zoom calls are available on the CeMEAS website.
