Summary: The aim of this essay is to offer an academic analysis of China’s efforts to become a global player, reflecting on the implications, meanings and scope of these efforts on the existing international order. To achieve this, this paper will focus not only on the formal dimension of foreign policy that the Chinese regime has followed, understood in part as a reflection of its domestic political circumstances and trajectory, but also on the actions undertaken so far by Beijing in the regional and global sphere, seeking to explore and integrate critical bibliography in a balanced way.
