The Relevance and Bnefits of my Research

I am currently studying Chinese theories of world politics. As China keeps rising, Her leading intellectuals are questioning explanations and concepts derived from western theories of world politics, which are based on western historical experience. Chinese theorists are now imagining new ways for understanding the wolrd, and even setting normative altenatives for making it better! It is important to follow this process as these theories offer fresh and interesting insights on Chinese views of world politics. My dissertation will then (hopefully) be useful for everyone interested in China, world politics and the theory of world politics
