Further Challenges for
China’s Role in the World
At 70, the People’s Republic of China has traversed a long road in its foreign relations and role in the world to become a major global power. Yet Beijing faces a new set of regional, global, economic and institutional challenges. David Shambaugh, an internationally recognized authority and award-winning author on contemporary China, highlighted what he sees as the most significant opportunities and obstacles in China’s foreign relations.
Professor Shambaugh is the Gaston Sigur professor of Asian Studies, Political Science & International Affairs, and director of the China Policy Program in the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. As an author, Professor Shambaugh has published more than 30 books, including most recently China’s Future and The China Reader: Rising Power (both 2016). His next book China & the World will be published in December by Oxford University Press.
