Is China working with or against the global order? What does the Trump administration's confrontational approach miss about China?
Department professors Scott Kastner and Margaret Pearson recently penned a Washington Post Monkey Cage article along with co-author, Dr. Chad Rector, from Marymount University that provides some answers.
Their piece highlights the nuances of China's engagement with the global order. In particular, they paint a multidimensional picture of China's behavior that departs from the simple 'status quo' versus 'revisionist' power narratives. The article also discusses the US-China trade war and the challenges China faces is assuming greater global leadership.
The article is based on findings from their book (forthcoming) entitled China's Strategic Multilateralism: Investing in Global Governance from Cambridge University Press.
