The first three contributions to this volume present a thematic discussion on the relationship between law and power in China's emergence as a great power in international relations. China’s current prominence on the world stage is the culmination of a story long foretold. The question how China is going to wield its increasing economic and military power, and whether it is going to do this in accordance with the rules set of the current international order, is discussed against the background of China’s foreign policy and the rise and decline of liberal norms in the international legal order.
