-  This course is titled "Global China and World Order". Limited seating may be available to non-MPPGA students. Please contact the program (mppga.program@ubc.ca). ------ The world is being reshaped by the fourth rise of China, its integration into regional production networks and global value chains, its outward investment and infrastructure projects, the growing presence and influence of overseas Chinese, its diplomatic and military assets, its deepening role in international institutions, and the persistence of its particular form of authoritarian capitalism. Decisions of Chinese officials, citizens, business people, and consumers have impact around the world. At the same time, China is being reshaped by its encounter with the world. Several questions will surface in many of our sessions. What is global China and how does it differ from China earlier the 20th century and the imperial period that preceded it? How can we understand its contemporary behavior in light of its history, domestic circumstances and new connections around the world? What are the implications of its rise for the balance of power as well as international norms, rules and institutions? How does it see its emerging leadership role? Will its rise complement, supplant or undermine what some refer to as the liberal world order constructed after World War II? How should be responding?
