As China continues to rise, a key question will be whether and to what extent China is able to translate its economic prowess into comprehensive national power and global influence. This Hybrid CoE Paper analyses the rise of a new geoeconomic world order and discusses how economic power is organized and wielded within a context of complex interdependence. The paper explores how China is becoming increasingly present and unavoidable in the global economy and then turns to a discussion on China as a revisionist power, exploring the way in which it presents systemic risks for liberal democracies.
A finalized piece of analysis on a topic related to hybrid threats, based on one or several research questions. May be either a conceptual analysis or based on a concrete case study with empirical data.
