China, Sovereignty and the “Community of Shared Destiny”
This webinar is in partnership with the Lau China Institute.

In October 2017, Xi Jinping unveiled fourteen new fundamental principles that ‘underpin the endeavours to uphold and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era’. The thirteenth principle was declared to be ‘Promoting the building of a community with a shared future for mankind’. This phrase, and its alternative translation, ‘common destiny for mankind’, seems vague to foreigners but it may signal the Chinese leadership’s more ambitious approach to foreign policy and global governance.

At this webinar, the speakers will discuss the emergence and renewal of Chinese ideas of state sovereignty and their implications for global governance. The speakers will debate to what extent the concept 'Community of Common Future’ is an attempt to reshape the existing multilateral order of international organisations and alliances.
