Brief | Analyses n°16 : Recalibrating the Global Balance of Power?

2021

2049 will be the next symbolic milestone for China with the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. What does Xi Jinping aim to achieve by then? How does the Chinese Communist Party want to change the balance of power in the international institutions? Is technological decoupling possible? Are Chinese authorities likely to attack Taiwan by military means? Would that be a red line for the U.S? In this special issue, three specialists of China dialogue and share their respective analyses of these matters: Andrew Nathan, Professor of Political Science at Columbia University; Juliette Genevaz, Associate Professor of Political Science at Lyon 3 University - EURICS Fellow 2021; and Paul Irwin Crookes, Professor of international relations at the University of Oxford.

This interview is based on a roundtable discussion at the conference The Chinese Communist Party’s 100-Year Trajectory organized by EURICS, Inalco, IFRAE, and Oxford School of Global and Area Studies. It was conducted by Pierre Haski, geopolitical columnist at France Inter and president of the association Reporters Without Borders. Edits by Aurélie Louchart.
