Released in cooperation with the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College, this volume explores other PLA missions, including disaster and humanitarian relief, United Nations peacekeeping operations (UNPKO), counterterrorism and border defense, and outer space and cyberspace security. Chapter authors consider the interplay between China’s armed forces and its increasingly complex foreign policy and international security environment. They shed light on how these interactions affect China’s policy toward the wider Asia-Pacific region and the implications for U.S. strategic interests.
