  • Descrição: The evolving dynamics of Southeast Asia-China relations in the twenty-first century is an outcome of fundamental changes taking place in (a) the global and regional structures of power; and (b) the attributes and priorities of the actors operating within and influencing the regional strategic landscape. These trends have contributed to significant shifts in the character of China's bilateral relations with ASEAN member states, substantially enhanced the Chinese shadow over Southeast Asia and introduced considerable strain on ASEAN's efforts at a consensus-based approach towards a rising China. While Southeast Asia continues to debate whether China's rise is a peaceful process or not, three important trends have shaped the relationship of China and Southeast Asia. First, the rise of China offers a huge opportunity for the economic development of the region. Second, the asymmetry in the balance of power between China and ASEAN is increasing. Third, rising China has shown greater assertion in its relations with Southeast Asia, forcing ASEAN countries to develop appropriate strategies to manage China. These developments have resulted in a multi-tiered structure of relationships connecting domestic, regional and systemic equations.
