With the beginning of a phase of generational transition, China’s new leadership change in 2012 with is undoubtedly one of the most significant internal developments in the contemporary history of the country. This change has huge ramifications for not only the internal social, economic and political dynamics of China, but also for regional security.
The transformation has been peaceful so far, with a focus on economic and political reforms. However, several paradoxes and contradictions still exist within Chinese society, domestic politics and foreign policy. In collaboration with the India International Centre (IIC), Department of East Asian Studies in Delhi University and the Centre for East Asian Studies in Jawaharlal Nehru University, the China Research Programme (CRP) at the Institute has been observing these developments closely through its research, discussions, conferences and annual dialogues at the national level. The essays in this volume on political leadership, social and economic issues are the subsequent result of a series of discussions and debates.
With overarching themes based on political developments, the new leadership transition, social change, and economic crisis, this volume aims at focusing on issues that need further discussion and debate to understand what is happening within contemporary China.
With the rise of the India, China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia, Asia today is the center of international relations and undoubtedly, this is an Asian Century. While, on the one hand, the economy and political influence of states within Asia has been witnessing a tremendous growth, potential hotspots that could destabilize the said growth have also been expanding. North Korea, South China Sea, Sino-Japan and Sino-Indian relations, Afghanistan and Iran are some of the regions that remain volatile. The fact that Asia has more nuclear States-de facto and de jure- than the rest of the world, further complicates the evolution of any security architecture in the region.
The institute has been working on the above issues relating to Asian Security through its four Programmers-Nuclear Security (NSP), China Research (CRP); Southeast Asia Research (SEARP) and Regional and Internal Security (IReS). In collaboration with Samskriti Publisher, the Asian Security Series is part of the Institute’s endeavor to observe and follow various regional developments closely, through research, publication and dissemination.
Forthcoming volumes in the series will include China, India and Border trade in Sikkim; Emerging Security Architecture in Southeast and East Asia, and Nuclear Asia.
