Abstract : This report evaluates the character and possible future of Chinas engagement with the post World War II international order. The resulting portrait is anything but straightforward: Chinas engagement with the order remains a complex and often contradictory work in progress. In the Maoist era, China frequently maintained an antagonistic posture to the international system. However, since the advent of the reform and opening-up period in the late 1970s, the trajectory of Chinas policy toward the postwar order has been more supportive.
