Abstract:

The basic question is whether the practice of the Peoples Republic of China with respect to international law has changed since it was seated in the U.N. in 1971. A sub-question is what it regards as having useful precedential value in the field. The essay explores sovereignty and territorial acquisition, China and the U.N., The Law of Treaties, Extraterritoriality, and doing business with China. The paper concludes that as an emerging major power, the PRC will more and more adopt modern Western views of international law as most closely fitting its needs.
