Contini, Carla (2018) La Vocazione internazionale della Cina: attitudine al voto nel Consiglio di Sicurezza delle Nazioni Unite. Doctoral Thesis.
The subject of this research falls within the framework of the International Relations debate on China’s rise in the contemporary international system, through a contribution on the study of its behaviour within international organizations, especially its voting pattern on United Nations Security Council, pursuing the aim of analyzing the nature of its diplomatic conduct. The study of Chinese foreign policy and Chinese use of veto power within the Security Council, allows us to identify a trend in public diplomacy that can be explained in terms of strategic interests and economic top priorities, and puts China among the rational actors whose behaviour can be studied and described using one of the contemporary International Relations theoretical models. Reviewing the various paradigms of International Relations’ concerning roles , functions and relevance of international institutions, we can identify the one that best describes, explains and rationalizes the present dynamics and recent developments occurring in the international society and China’s extraordinary integration within it: the neoliberal institutionalism.
