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.
