China’s Peaceful Development and Transformation of International Order (1985–2015)
The creation and gradual improvement of China’s peaceful development road depends not only on the implementation of domestic strategies but also, to a great extent, on successful international engagements. Thus, this represents the joining of domestic and international arrangements. At the international level, China’s road shares a natural relation with the reform of the international order. It can be said that the achievement of a stable international order symbolizes a great power’s true success. The construction of an international order is a strategic and diplomatic topic that every rising great power should address. As China ascends, the world is looking to see how China will address and participate in reshaping the international order (RIO). It will also become an important template for those countries waiting to see the effect of China’s rise.
