The challenges of China's international integration

The main aim of our China Project organized and implemented by the International Center for Development and Democratic Transition (ICDT) is to assess China’s integration into-, and relation towards the current global status quo. The end goal and output of the project will be a complex study examining the subject, while also serving as a source of ideas regarding the future, which then might be used by different policy makers.


The position of Hungary in this global setting will also be assessed, which will complete other findings of the study. The data needed will be gathered from different experts through online workshops and interviews.


Regarding the structure of implementation, the study will be consisting of three distinct study areas, all with the goal of providing a better understanding regarding the differences and similarities of the Western world and China, closely focusing on U.S./Europe – China relations.


The three areas are: economic-, strategic-, and political – institutional dimensions.


As a first step, each of these topics will be discussed in the form of online conferences, resulting in useful information, which later will be summarized as a draft study. This will provide the basis for a second, complementary online conference, which is supposed to produce more precise findings, being completed in written format. The partial studies will then be used as the basis for an online conference discussing the ways Hungary could positively influence the examined processes and situations.


As a closing act of the project, a final, written, complete study will be summarizing and communicating the findings of previous conferences and documents.
