Formująca się wielka strategia Chin: Ku dominacji w Azji Wschodniej, ale bez walki
China's emerging grand strategy: dominating East Asia without fighting
Languages of publication
Since late 2002, Beijing has implemented an increasingly integrated new grand strategy. It incorporates domestic policy, foreign policy, and cross-strait policy in way of synergy to augment their combined benefits. With it, Beijing has achieved some noteworthy success in foreign affairs, despite daunting domestic dilemmas China is facing. As the country grows into a status quo power, Beijing has begun to encounter untried challenges. One of Beijing’s aspirations under this emerging national security framework, albeit officially unsaid, is to dominate East Asia and nudge out the hitherto leading US influence without a war, but instead with mainly economy and culture. China’s rapidly modernizing military capabilities, which Beijing wished to have fully prepared but preferably not used in actual combat, are intended to strengthen the effects of Beijing’s extra-military instruments. The article answers the following questions: How has the grand strategy developed? What does it contain? What assumptions is it based on? What characterizes its approaches? How has it manifested in PRC–US/Japan/Taiwan relations? What challenges has it encountered? The article ends with the table of Beijing’s post–Anti-Secession Law cross-Strait soft offensives.
