Aalborg University and University of International relations in Beijing are currently co-hosting an international workshop revolving around ‘The Chinese rise and the existing liberal world order’.
On September 20-21, Aalborg University and University of International Relations in Beijing are co-hosting an international workshop focusing on the opportunities and challenges the existing liberal world order faces in the wake of the Chinese rise. Besides Chinese and Danish researchers from universities and think tanks, the seminar also included a number of foreign scientists.
Danish Ambassador to China, Mr. Friis Arne Petersen, took part in the opening ceremony as key note speaker. In his speech, Ambassador Petersen emphasised China’s increasing global commitments, among these contributing to the management of the global economic crisis, as well as the peace keeping missions of the UN and strengthening of the multilateral architecture in a multipolar world, influenced by new rising powers.
The workshop is the first offshoot from a number of cooperation agreements made by the two universities aiming at advancing research cooperation and student exchange.
