Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

This project examines the tension between China’s great power responsibilities and its traditional firm stance on state sovereignty, and how this is reflected in its position towards humanitarian intervention in the post-Cold War period. It will do so by operationalizing Hedley Bull’s great power management theory into indicators that will identify a general pattern in China’s behaviour towards humanitarian intervention in the post-Cold War era. Analyzing 11 cases from the 1990s to 2013 this project concludes that China's position on humanitarian intervention in the post-Cold War era, reflects not a tension, but a modification or merging of its traditional principles of sovereignty with the responsibilities of a great power in the modern day international society.
