  • Theoretical Connotation and Historical Significance of Building a New Model of International Relations/ Xu Bu

    As an essential element of Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy, building a new model  of international relations characterized by mutual respect, fairness and justice, and  win-win cooperation is the Chinese solution in response to the changing international  balance of power and the deficiencies of the current global governance system, which  is highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also urgently needed to address the  challenges of globalization as it enters in-depth development. China is ready to work  with all global partners to build a new model of international relations and foster a  community with a shared future for mankind.

  • The Shanghai Cooperation Organization and China’s Multilateral Diplomacy in the New Era/ Sun Zhuangzhi

    As a multilateral cooperation mechanism founded and developed in the post-Cold  War era, the SCO has great significance to China’s multilateral diplomacy and plays  a unique role in international and regional governance. Over the years, China has  taken an active part in safeguarding multilateralism while engaging in cooperation  in various fields within the SCO framework. The development of the SCO has  fully embodied the “Chinese wisdom” and “Chinese solutions.”

  • Five Years of Lancang-Mekong Cooperation: Progress, Challenges and Deepening Paths/ Ma Jie

    Over the past five years, Lancang-Mekong Cooperation has achieved fruitful  results in mechanism building and practical cooperation, but the mechanism is  also facing challenges brought about by conflicting interests among regional  countries, increased uncertainties in their foreign policies, intensified great-power  competition, and the COVID-19 pandemic. It should strengthen top-level design,  uphold openness and inclusiveness, and improve the supporting framework, thus  generating more momentum to usher in a new Golden Five Years and promote the  Lancang-Mekong community of shared future for peace and prosperity

  • Borrowing Power: Climate Governance in the Pacific Islands Region/ Chen Xiaochen

    The Pacific Islands is the region in the world most threatened by climate change. Despite a lack of strength to directly address their serious disagreement with the  regional hegemon, these countries have managed to translate external resources into  tangible outcomes, thus contributing to regional climate governance. However,  this process may be constrained by the shift of focus away from climate change,  the region’s integration into the Indo-Pacific strategy, and the strengthening of  Australia’s control over the Pacific Islands during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • EU and US Climate Change Policies: Divergences and Cooperation Prospects/ Dong Yifan & Sun Chenghao

    As the Biden administration actively rectifies Trump’s climate policy, climate  cooperation and coordination between the US and the EU is expected to witness  significant progress. Although the convergence of transatlantic climate policies will  have a positive impact on global climate governance, but with their fundamental  dispute over policy orientation left intact, interaction between the two sides can still  be plagued by their respective domestic politics and different economic interests.

  • ASEAN’s Perception of and Response to China-US Competition/ Yang Yue

    In the face of China-US strategic competition, ASEAN, choosing not to take sides  and instead upholding its centrality by promoting inclusive and pragmatic regional  cooperation, is trying to play a constructive and mediating role between the two  major powers. Such a balanced approach is the best solution for ASEAN to enjoy  sufficient strategic independence in advancing its own agenda. However, it should  also take into account the uncertainties arising from evolving ASEAN policies of  China and the US as well as its own inherent challenges.

  • Japan’s Diplomacy toward China from the Perspective of Regionalism/ Cai Liang

    Amid the challenges of a changing international order and driven by a traditional geopolitical mindset, Japan has proposed its Indo-Pacific vision as a framework for  regional order. Japan intends to forge a multi-level security system targeting China,  while building a multilateral institutional framework economically for compatible  competition with China. China should be aware of Japan’s strategic intent while  strengthening communication and coordination with Japan to manage the bilateral  relations on the basis of mutual respect and seeking common ground.
