China’s “Peaceful Rise”: Implications and Challenges


China’s rapid rise is the most significant phenomenon in today’s world. But this is achieved not necessarily under the so-called “peaceful rise” strategy, but through Beijing’s constant effort to adapt to an environment in which integrating into, rather than challenging, the international system has been a rational and practical policy choice to sustain China’s development. This has resulted in a new, conciliatory approach in China’s diplomacy in the past decade, with which China’s rise has in general been conducive to international peace and development, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. However, as China’s stake in world peace and prosperity increases, the fundamental in incompatibility between its internal political system and the existing international order, which is based on market economy and led by democracies, has become an essential source of conflicts between China and the outside world. Thus, the extent to which China can successfully reform and restructure its political and economic systems will have a far-reaching impact on not only China’s long-term development and stability, but also the world peace and prosperity.
