Speaker(s): Professor Barry Buzan, Professor Arne Westad
Chair: Professor Michael Cox

Recorded on 7 October 2014 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Despite the widespread view that China does not have a coherent grand strategy, China has already articulated one that is based on the home-grown idea of ‘peaceful rise/development’ (PRD). The key issue is whether the logic of this grand strategy, and the contradictions within it, are fully understood, and whether China has sufficient depth and coherence in its policy-making processes to implement such a strategy. This lecture will explore key issues arising from the idea of ‘Peaceful Rise/Development’.
