Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


China’s ascent as a new imperial global power seems to be unstoppable. Originally built on business, globalization, technological advancement a “newer” focus on an imperialistic national rejuvenation has taken place under its leader, Xi Jinping. These developments have gone mostly unchecked by the West (with the exception of the United States and now the present Scott Morrison government in Australia) due to reliance on China as a global economic powerhouse and trade partner. China aims to gain a lead position in the strategic competition and primes its strategic preconditioning by a combination of intentional, multidimensional, and integrated use of the different instruments of diplomacy, power, investments, and technology.
