China has been committed to the reform in economic and political systems over the past three decades, which has resulted in tremendous transformations in the economy, society and politics in China. In this era of transformation, China’s relationship with the rest of the world is playing a critical role in shaping the directions for the economic development and political reform in China.
This series aims to gather the perspectives of top Chinese scholars on important issues of global economics and politics and make them available to English readers, so as to promote discussions and dialogues on the relationship between China and the world as well as the challenges and opportunities globalization has brought to each country and region. Each volume in this series includes important and influential articles of top Chinese scholars, selected from top quality journals and periodicals in the field. Scholars, policy makers and leaders who are interested in the economic and political development of China and its relationship with the world will find this series interesting and helpful.
Will the twenty-first century be the Asian century? Will the People’s Republic of China (PRC) overtake the United States as the leading global superpower? Will an institutionalised Third Bloc emerge in international relations and challenge the transatlantic alliance that has dominated world politics for such a long time? While opinions on the details differ strongly, there seems to be a certain consensus that the East Asian region, roughly defined as
Northeast Asia (Greater China, the two Koreas, Japan and the Russian Far East) plus
Southeast Asia (the ten members states of ASEAN), will be globally significant in the years to come and see its role growing. Such a role includes almost all fields such as economics, science and technology, migration, culture, and international relations. These issues are interrelated and often overlap.
This series, therefore, takes as its main focus the field of international relations post-WWII that pertain to the region and in particular the question of collective security and related issues, including options for institutionalised mechanisms of a joint regional security policy. The need for such a focus has become increasingly obvious: shifts in the global balance of power, as well as a multitude of conflicts in the region, some old and unresolved, some new and emerging, actual or potential, call for ongoing detailed appraisal and sustainable solutions.
The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
