ABSTRACT

How are we to make sense of China’s more active engagement with the United Nations in the last decade or so? This lecture traces this question focusing directly on Beijing’s involvement in one of the more contentious areas of UN activity—human protection—contentious because the norm of human protection tips the balance away from the UN’s Westphalian state-based profile, towards the provision of greater protection for the security of the individual. As an ever-more crucial actor within the United Nations, Beijing’s rhetoric and some of its practices are playing an increasingly important role in determining how this norm of human protection is articulated, interpreted, and in some cases implemented.
