Title Leveraging EU Soft Power to Shape the Rise of China.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 38p
Personal Author R. L. White
Abstract To explore potential forums, international institutions, and establishedbi- lateral/multi-lateral institutions in which the United States can coordinate and collaborate with our European partners in the form of theEuropean Union (EU) to influence China's behavior in the future to conform to international norms and avoid future conflict. The EU is China's largest trading partner; its members hold influential seats in multiple international organizations to include the UN Security Council as well as participate in ASEAN. Such leverage can be utilized by the U.S. to engage European soft power in order to assist in shaping China'saccent as an up and coming world power. The intent is not to retard China s rise, but to show China the benefits and responsibilities of being a rising world power far outweigh its current practice of realpolitik. The combination of EU and U.S. influence can curb Chinese ambitions and promote world stability while allowing China to pursue economic prosperity. Voltaire once said with great power come great responsibility; shaping China s rise now as a responsible member of the international community and a regional source of stability will be a benefit to all.
