[Webinar] "The Two Sides of China’s 'Wolf Warrior Diplomacy': Factors Influencing China’s Foreign Conduct" (2020-12-22)
The webinar, titled The Two Sides of China’s “Wolf Warrior Diplomacy”: Factors Influencing China’s Foreign Conduct, concerns the political and social factors influencing Chinese diplomacy. China’s coercive approach alongside the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, can be viewed as having become more aggressive than previously.
However, China’s foreign conduct offer glimpses of an otherwise hidden consideration for those other countries behind what is on the face of it an ostensibly hardline attitude.
Why has China’s outward stance consisted of the two approaches of coercion and collaboration and how should we interpret this situation?
JIIA invited Professor Tomoki Kamo from Keio University and Professor Tomoko Ako from the University of Tokyo to discuss these questions, with Kyoko Kuwahara of JIIA, serving as moderator.
