What does China mean by realizing a “Strong Military Dream” and “Strong Military Goal”? What does China aim to achieve? Why doesn’t the People’s Liberation Army seek to defect from the Chinese Communist Party? This seminar will explore China’s military-strategic goals, economic statecraft, and what China calls the “overall national security concept” under the Xi Jinping administration. It will examine the country’s domestic politics, ideology, and financial resources, which hold the key to the robustness of the party-military relationship under Xi’s leadership. This forum will also assess the possibility of China’s further military expansion—particularly when the country’s economic growth is slowing down—and its implications.
