    China’s Strong Arm: Protecting Citizens and Assets Abroad

    29 May 2015. 

    China has long adhered to a principle of ‘non-interference’ in other states’ affairs. However, as more of its companies have been investing in projects overseas, and millions of its nationals are travelling abroad, Beijing is finding itself progressively involved in other countries – through the need to protect these interests and citizens.

    Mark Fitzpatrick: South Korea nuclear cooperation deal not as simple as 123
