TIU International Affairs Seminar Series Event: "From 'Golden Era' to 'Seriously Poisoned'"

This event has ended

As recently as 2018, the UK government was continuing to describe the UK-China relationship as being in a 'golden era', following a deliberate effort to position the UK as China's number one partner in Europe even before the decision to leave the EU was taken. By the summer of 2020, China's ambassador described the relationship as 'seriously poisoned' following a series of UK policy decisions that negatively impacted on China. Rhetoric aside, the trajectory of the UK-China relationship has changed substantively in a relatively short space of time. In this talk, I identify key developments and explore the reasons behind the sudden shifts. As permanent members of the UN Security Council, key players in global institutions and forums, economic heavyweights, and possessors of considerable power projection capabilities (including nuclear), their bilateral relationship is one of the most significant on the global stage. To understand UK-China relations, we need to consider what both sides want and the relative importance of ties for each. A central contention will be that the UK-China relationship has to be placed in the wider context of EU/Europe-China relations, the transatlantic relationship, and the UK's attempt to construct 'Global Britain' as a viable role for itself in the aftermath of departing from the EU. There is no single factor that provides a satisfactory explanation for recent changes in the relationship, necessitating consideration of the complex interplay between competing perceptions, interests, and values.

TIU Global Dialogue 13: Tibet Question in China-Ascendant Geopolitics?

This event has ended

While China-ascendant geopolitics becomes an increasing reality, and the focus in Asia and beyond is on how other states can cooperate, compete, adjust or contain China, what is often missed is the weaponization of emotions, sensitivity, and "hurt" by the Chinese state. Any criticism of China on Uyghurs, Hong Kong, or Tibet leads to a reaction along the lines of "this is our internal affairs", or "this hurts our national sentiments." In this book talk, Prof. Dibyesh Anand will discuss how "hurt", "national humiliation," and "national sensitivity" are politically constructed foreign policy tools for China, arguing that there is a fundamental disjuncture at the heart of modern nation-state project in China. The speaker will describe China as anti-imperialist in its foreign policy rhetoric while being beneficiary and even practitioner, rather than the victim, of imperialism and colonialism.

Finally, Prof. Anand will explain how the modern nation-state of the People's Republic of China is colonial in what it sees as its periphery. With a focus on Tibet, this talk will argue for a critical understanding of China as an emergent global power."
