Summary

This paper aims to examine China's changing diplomacy. To do this it considers how China is approaching its diplomacy in a number of specific contexts. The examples chosen to illustrate its more nuanced diplomacy are the US-China relationship; Chinas relations with Latin America; the Six Party Talks over North Koreas nuclear ambitions; Chinas concerns about energy security and its relations with unsavoury regimes; and Chinas relations with its neighbours.It concludes that China has increasingly been making more effective use of traditional diplomatic practices and norms and that this is a positive sign that China is integrating into the international system of states. Part, however, of China's evident success in its diplomacy has been its unwillingness to use its influence, in circumstances where international rules and norms are being breached, such as over human rights or nuclear proliferation. This, however, poses problems for much of the rest of the world. As China is drawn further into the international system, it will face unavoidable choices. While still looking to protect its concept of sovereignty, China has moved towards greater responsiveness to dealing with such international problems. It will continue to be seen as falling short, however, in its willingness to support intervention as practiced in the West but it seems likely to continue to adjust, if slowly, its diplomacy as it moves to become a responsible great power.
