CHINA AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER IN THE ERA OF GLOBALISATION
Stelean Ioan BOIA
Abstract. The paper is trying to present a post – realist approach in order to explain the essence of the Chinese foreign policy, its main strategic trends of thoughts, and its perception about the complex contemporary world. Daoist and Confucianism roots within the content of some keyconcepts of the Chinese strategic contemporary trends are also identified as an effort to better understand the Chinese strategic culture and the way it shapes the future of international relations. Accommodating interests of the main characters is not a kind “idealistic objective”, but rather it reveals a new foundation for realizing a “harmonious global society”, by connecting different perceptions of the main civilizations about the ”global governance” and about manking as a ”community of common destiny”. Far from expressing some utopian views ”such as analyzing some of the main Chinese key-concepts as being the ”harmonious world”, a ”New Security Concept” or ”New Type of Relations between Great Powers” it can represent the beginning of a new stage in implementing ”global governance” paradigm.
