China as a major strategic factor in the future world
Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Far East, grade: A, Diplomatic Academy of Vienna - School of International Studies, course: International Politics / China, language: English, abstract: The People's Republic of China has risen to become a potential super power of today's world. Its influence has been growing immensely in many fields. It must therefore be regarded as a major strategic factor in the future world order. Changes in the status quo of the Asian-Pacific are of high significance for global politics. Thus, international political strategies, 'long term plan[s] of action designed to achieve [a] particular goal[s]', have to be adjusted in order to cater to China's existence as a new main player in the international system. The maintenance of stability in the Asian-Pacific is harder to achieve than in other regions, such as in Europe, for example: The lack of a multilateral system and interlocking institutions is only one reason. Furthermore, there is no significant regional security organization to be found in the Asian-Pacific. What NATO signifies for Europe, namely a body that through its mere existence discourages the initiation of wars of aggression and guarantees security, does not exist for China and its region.
