How to Run the World: China's Evolving Role in Global Governance


Talk at the Library with Jue Wang of Leiden University

China and Global Governance

As China has developed economically over the last 20 years, it has also stepped up its engagement in global governance. It took on a leading role in the G20 group of countries, as well as in organizations like the IMF or the World Bank. Increasingly, China is developing its own vehicles for global governance: Be it institutions like the Beijing-based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) or more amorphous initiatives like the Belt and Road.

Will China eventually be able (and willing) to fill the perceived gap in global governance left by the U.S.? What is the thinking that underpins China's global engagement? And how does a world order according to Beijing look like?

Join us for a members-only conversation with Jue Wang, Lecturer at the University of Leiden and expert on China's role in global governance.
