How does China’s domestic governance shape its foreign policy ambitions and international influence? China is simultaneously a revisionist, reformer, innovator, and defender of the status quo—insisting rigidly on issues that are central to its domestic survival, while showing flexibility on issues that are more peripheral. To understand this variation, Weiss develops a framework to illuminate China’s approach to global governance, homeland issues including Taiwan and Hong Kong, and the spread of authoritarian practices and democratic corrosion.
