Gauging Chinese Public Support for China’s Role in UN Peacekeeping

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The world has witnessed an increasing number of states disintegrating into civil wars and anarchy in recent years. Against this backdrop, the international community has urged China to step up its effort to provide much-needed support for peacekeeping, both in terms of personnel and financial contributions. Simultaneously, there is an ongoing debate inside and outside China regarding the implications for China’s expanding participation in UN peacekeeping, given China’s long standing foreign policy principle of mutual respect for sovereignty. However, the discussions have been focused only on the thinking of the policy elites in China; little attention has been paid to the Chinese public’s preference toward such issues and its implications. With the explosion of Internet news outlets and the usage of social media and network assisted by technological innovations, the Chinese public has become increasingly vocal on domestic and foreign policy issues. The country’s increasing participation in peacekeeping missions will inevitably result in the images of Chinese personnel casualties spreading on the Internet, along with the perception of success and failure of such missions. Understanding where the Chinese public stands on the issue, therefore, will provide a window into the domestic motivations and constraints that China faces as it considers its future role in peacekeeping operations.
