Abstract [en]

In September 2005, President Hu Jintao called for a 'harmonious world' at thesummit for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. Followinghis call, the Chinese government issued a white paper on China's peacefuldevelopment road, in which 'building a harmonious world' is valued as the'lofty goal' in taking the path of 'peaceful development'. In the latest Five-YearPlan (2011–2015), Chinese foreign policy continues to hold high the banner ofpeace, development and cooperation and to build a harmonious world featuredby enduring peace and common prosperity together with other countries inthe world. This article will examine the doctrine of 'harmonious world' to seewhether it is practical in conducting international relations between China andthe rest of the world and how China should adjust its foreign policy thinkingto better cope with the more complicated world. It is timely and meaningful todiscuss the topic at the time when China changes its leadership.
