NBR Special Report no. 87
An Emerging China-Centric Order
China's Vision for a New World Order in Practice
The Chinese leadership has embarked on a journey to reshape and redefine elements of the existing international system to better fit its worldview and interests. It has therefore become imperative to better understand the types of mechanisms, institutions, norms, and rules that Beijing would like to see emerge as part of a new China-centric order. The essays collected in this NBR Special Report investigate China’s objectives, describe its favored tools to achieve them, and assess the effectiveness of its efforts across a range of countries, institutions, and functional domains.
