China as a Responsible Stakeholder? A Decade Later

In 2005, then-Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick used the term “responsible stakeholder” to address how China should wield its influence in the coming future. In his remarks, he classified the U.S.-China relationship as one that must be built on not only shared interests but shared values. A decade later, how has China contributed positively to the international system and met US expectations as a responsible stakeholder? Going forward, what challenges, changes, and concerns will shape China’s developing role in global and regional affairs?

This conference brought together an expert panel to identify and assess areas where China challenges the existing international order and offered recommendations for a U.S. response to reinforce the pre-existing security and economic architecture in the Asia-Pacific.
