Presentation: Partners and Rivals: China’s Role in the New World Order

Discussions about China's role on the international stage often lack historical and cultural context and depth. Dr. Matthias Niedenführ’s presentation endeavours to provide an objective and fair picture of China in examining questions concerning the ways in which China’s traditional self-perception influences current PRC policies and the extent to which ambitions to (re)gain superpower status hold sway.

Location: RWS Forum, Balinger Str. 36, 72336 Balingen
