China plays an increasingly important role in global politics and is Australia's biggest trading partner. Its international relations generally and foreign policy in particular have attracted growing interest from scholars and students alike. 

Specifically, this unit will examine the sources and nature of Chinese power, Chinese views of its national identity, global role and responsibility, Chinese nationalism and strategic culture, China's major foreign relationships and regional responses to China's rise, as well as the impact of these interactions on the U.S., regional balance of power, global political, economic and normative order, energy and resources, environment, and Chinese domestic political economy.
