Dr Benjamin Ho Assistant Professor and Coordinator of China Programme, IDSS; Deputy Coordinator of MSc (International Relations) Programme
Dr Benjamin Ho
This study examines the concept of Chinese exceptionalism and how it frames China’s international relations, particularly its claims to being “different” and “good” compared to the Western-led international system. Among others, this study analyses how exceptionalist thinking is manifested in various aspects of China’s global interactions: (i) in its international relations theory, and (ii) in its self-identity and its national image. Empirically, it will look at China’s relations with its neighbours, relations with the diaspora as well as the Belt Road initiatives.
