China's Foreign Policy Aggressiveness

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This Chapter analyses the "aggressive turn" in Chinese foreign policy during the 2010–2011 period, including examples and sometimes competing explanations. It also surveys international reactions to shifts in Chinese policy, including a backlash from other countries in Asia. While most of these seem keen to maintain equidistance between China and the United States, the sharp and public debate that China’s foreign policy provoked in Australia illustrates the policy dilemmas that an increasingly assertive China will inevitably generate.
