China's expanding role in peacekeeping

prospects and policy implications

Bates Gill, Chin-hao Huang

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


China has dramatically increased its participation in United Nations peace operations in recent years. China now provides more uniformed personnel than any other permanent member of the UN Security Council. This timely Policy Paper offers new insights into the development of China’s engagement in multilateral peacekeeping and the factors and debates that underlie it. It also examines what these new trends mean for multilateral peacekeeping and for China’s major security partners. Finally, it makes policy-oriented recommendations on how China and the international community can build on this unique opportunity to strengthen multilateral peacekeeping and to firmly establish a new, more positive international role for China.
