Upcoming External Event: China after COVID-19 and a changing world order

This conference gathers researchers and postgraduate students in Denmark to be part in this conference on China after Covid-19 and a changing world at DIIS - Danish Institute for International Studies on Friday 26 November 2021, 9.30-17.00.


As the world gradually emerges from the health and economic crises brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is time to reflect on one of the major actors in world affairs – China. We are standing at a historic juncture, where China’s domestic developments and its relations with other countries will have long-term impacts on world peace and development. Domestically, China is exploring a new way of development and governance. How China handles its domestic economic, political, social, and environmental challenges will have deep repercussions both at home and abroad. Internationally, there is a widespread feeling of uncertainty with the rise of China and the changing world order. China under Xi Jinping’s leadership is conducting a more assertive foreign policy, and smaller states are caught in the rivalry between the US and China. Yet, global challenges like the environment crisis, pandemics, nuclear safety, poverty and inequality can only be met by coordinated efforts. Not only great powers but also smaller powers have important roles to play in determining the future of the globe.
