Deepening Research on China’s Road and Strengthening China’s Discourse Power

  • Honghua Men


Since entering the twenty-first century, the global community has been discussing and paying closer attention to China. Thus, “China’s Road” continues to be the focus of hot discussions, of which various perspectives emerge. From the “Beijing Consensus” proposed by Joshua Cooper Ramo to Martin Yacques’ prediction of “China’s domination of the world,” the world both looks forward to China’s Road and is concerned about China’s future development direction. Regarding the evaluation and prospect of China’s Road, there are various versions of the “China Threat” theory and “the Collapse of China.” However, the “China Responsibility” theory is more commonly discussed and commentary about “China’s Opportunity” and the “China Contribution” theory continue. This includes not only an objective analysis of China’s Road but also many misunderstandings, exaggerations, and even intentional distortions. Many developing countries closely follow the experience of China’s Road, while numerous Western scholars have used their inherent theories to explain the phenomenon. However, they are unable to provide an objective analysis and always present views mingled with ideologies and political bias.
