China’s Precarious Global Power Status

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 10 febbraio 2016

MunichFor the first time, the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) will be present at the Munich Security Conference. The Berlin based think tank will focus on current contradicting developments in China with two events. China’s diplomats have never been more active on the global stage than in the past two years. The Chinese government has expanded the scope of its activities in the region as well as its global reach. By abandoning traditions of relative restraint and adjusting key priorities of its foreign policy, Beijing has embarked on a new course in global affairs. Yet there are fundamental challenges to China’s expanding international role. “China is turning into a precarious global power as it confronts an increasingly complex international environment at a time when it undergoes the most challenging period of its domestic economic transformation for decades”, said Sebastian Heilmann, President of MERICS. “The way in which the PRC leadership applies its domestic policy approaches to international issues will be the ultimate test of its global leadership aspirations.”
The Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) in Berlin was set up by Stiftung Mercator in 2013. MERICS has grown into one of the biggest independent institutes of its kind around the world, dedicated to the policy-oriented research into and knowledge of contemporary China.
MERICS strives to provide a more nuanced and better-informed perspective on China in Europe. Based on in-depth research and up-to-date analysis, MERICS aims to enrich and improve the public debate on China. It serves as a key contact for the media on a broad spectrum of China-related issues. At the same time, MERICS provides analysis to European decision-makers in politics, business and other areas of society.
