China became a formal strategic partner of almost all the world powers, including the USA, the EU, and Russia, and launched its ambitious global developmental project the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). How can we understand the Chinese global role and how to read China’s self-perception? Is China willing to challenge the West-dominated liberal order or is the rising Asian power more likely absorbed by its domestic internal problems? Do we grasp China well?
