China-Angola energy diplomacy

English Abstract

In the 21 century, there are two lethal threats posed on human beings, which are the continual existence of nuclear weapon and global climate change caused by human. China, as a country possessing nuclear weapon and with the heaviest carbon emissions, is actively participating in the stream of global governance. China voluntarily shoulders her responsibility of pollution control and meanwhile wields her power based on regulations. Thus, the way China action to global warming is of value to conduct a research on. In this way, it can be figured out that what the position and role China is playing in global governance and what kind of pattern suits for China. Also, the future prospect of relevant actors can be known. Furthermore, some opinions and suggestions from a different angle on China’s participation in global governance is brought up by doing this research. Researches on global governance have been being done for more than 30 years. Lots of experts, scholars, politicians and participants of international relation made their contributions to the splendid references. In the thesis, the author adopts the classic global governance theory and the researching references from Chinese scholars in recent years, with innovative theories from Europe and Japan as a supplement. Therefore, the thesis is constructed as followings. Firstly in the Chapter one, the governance dilemma of global warming will be introduced and the key issues of the thesis will be brought up. With regard to global warming, what is the position and role that China playing in global governance? What is the suitable pattern of governance in China? And how China and non-state actors related to China continue to take part in global governance in the future? And then, the thesis will make a review on the development and changes of global 5 governance theory as well as relative researches made by China when dealing with global warming. In the next chapter, three governance patterns which are traditional, normal and dynamic and the choices of patterns made by different countries will be introduced. The thesis is going to bring up three governance hypotheses in short term, middle term and long term based on current situation of governance in China and developing trend. And then, combined with The 2014 Annual Report on Policies and Actions Made by China in Climate Change and the practical examples of developing carbon trade market in China, three hypotheses will be verified and the three questions will be answered. In the final chapter, both the hypotheses and problems indicate that China is actively exploring her own pattern of global governance and the situation of lacking governance main body can be compensated by establishing and optimizing carbon trade market
