Unformatted text preview: SDI 2010 1 AT: Chinese Containment Tournament Updates ***Aff Answers to Chinese Containment*** AT: China Rise China won’t rise- no desire. Even if they do rise it’s a long way off Nayyar 6/9 (Dhiraj, research Scholar in Political Economy of India, Trinity College, Cambridge 6/9/10, “ Will not seek to be a hegemon: China’s Binggou”, http://www.financialexpress.com/news/Will-not-seek-to-be-a-hegemon--China-s-Binggou/631198/ //da:7/28) China made a strong pitch for greater democracy in international relations at the third summit meeting of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA). Speaking at the summit , state councillor Dai Bingguo , who is also responsible for border talks with India, said, “Where we live today, is a world witnessing growing trends towards pluralism, diversity and multipolarity, a world adapting to globalised allocation of resources and movement of capital, goods and people. Such a world can no longer tolerate hegemony of any form or a single value system.” Dai Binggou also sought to allay fears about the rise of China, particularly its role as a potential hegemon. “China will never seek to be a superpower and will never seek hegemony in the world.

Three years ago, Jim Mann's provocative book of that title identified the "China Fantasy" as the dogmatic belief of many Western political and commercial elites that China's economic liberalization and growth would lead inevitably to democracy at home and responsible conduct abroad. The operative word was "inevitably" -- the assumption being that China's remarkable economic success would automatically produce a middle class that demanded greater political rights, and that China's growing integration with the global economy would produce benign and responsible international behavior. Based on this assumption, the corollary policy prescription for the West was to pursue a policy of engagement and encouragement towards China's rise. This paradigm seems to be shifting. I recently participated in a conference in Europe on China, attended by a cross-section of policy, academic, and commercial leaders from Europe, the United States, and China, and came away struck by palpable...
