外交政策分论坛 Foreign Policy Panel 2016

Evolving Diplomacy in the 21st Century

In 2012, Xi Jinping took office as President of China. Over the last three years, we have seen internal reforms, such as tougher stances on corruption, coupled with a more assertive foreign policy. Xi Jinping has also taken a tougher stance on disputes with neighbors and continued initiatives to expand influence. We ultimately want to examine how these internal reforms coupled with a more assertive external presence is shaping China’s image in the world.

自2012年习近平主席执政以来,中国国内开展了包括打击腐败在内的多项政治改革。与此同时,中国的外交政策也变得更加强势有力,在与邻国的争端中也显得立场更加坚定,不断努力扩大在国际舞台上的影响力和话语权。中国国内外政策的改革与变化将如何影响中国在世界舞台上的形象和地位?这将是论坛着重探讨的话题。

We also want to look at China’s relationships with foreign countries in the context of Chinese investment (FDI) in these countries. In the context of these actions, an examination of the effects of China’s recent economic struggles on these foreign relationships would not only help to unravel the complicated state of Chinese economic policies and performance, it could lead to a discussion on future forecasts and potential solutions for Chinese development.

此外,我们将在中国对外投资的大背景下探讨中国与世界各国的关系以及中国在海外的影响力。通过分析解读中国的对外投资政策和具体案例,我们将重点研讨中国在非洲、南美、和美国等地不断扩大的投资计划。我们相信这样的讨论将不仅有助于理解中国近年来经济发展与外交关系相互作用的关系,更会让我们对中国未来的发展和方向做出更加清晰的判断。

 

Panel Questions:

  • How is Xi’s foreign policy different than that of his predecessors?
  • How is Xi’s consolidation of power shaping China’s foreign policy? (could potentially include note about China’s internal reforms against corruption as well?)
  • How is Chinese investment in Africa, South America, and even the United States shaping its influence in these respective regions?
