‘Peripheral Vision’: The Relationship among the PRC’s Power Projection, Interpretations of History, and Sense of Threat
Date of this Version
Given the People’s Republic of China’s new ‘Peripheral or Neighboring Diplomacy’ efforts to promote the ‘China Dream’ within East Asia, the question remains what this policy shift means to regional security. This project explores the history of China’s peripheral relations, sensitive security relations with the United States and Japan, and the possible implications of the PRC’s recent military and economic courses of action. Next, this paper discusses ways to manage the risks of conflict escalation as well as mitigate arms races and historical mistrust within the Asia-Pacific.
