At a time when the economic transition in China is casting shadows on the weak world recovery, and the country is further increasing military spending at double-digit rates, it is key to assess how far President Xi has gone in fulfilling the “China Dream” of ascendance to cultural, economic and military power.
Even more important is to try to figure out what the substance of the “China Dream” is likely to be in the near future. The current risk is that the Chinese people and the Chinese government are dreaming different dreams, and that Xi’s “China Dream” might be more a dream for the country and much less so for the people.
China has recently reached a series of symbolic milestones: the Yuan’s inclusion in the IMF’s SDR basket; the new China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB); the market economy status by a number of countries. The 2016 Chinese G20 Presidency will provide a timely occasion for China to better define its role in global economic governance. However, progress on reforms is lagging behind expectations and international tensions are on the rise.
This volume explores the viability of the China Dream and analyzes its major challenges.

Nato ottant’anni fa, l’ISPI è un think tank indipendente dedicato allo studio delle dinamiche internazionali, con l’obiettivo di favorire la consapevolezza del ruolo dell’Italia in un contesto globale in continua evoluzione. È l’unico istituto italiano – e fra i pochissimi in Europa – ad affiancare all’attività di ricerca un altrettanto significativo impegno nella formazione, nella convegnistica e nelle attività specifiche di analisi e orientamento sugli scenari internazionali per imprese ed enti. Tutta l’attività è caratterizzata da un approccio interdisciplinare – assicurato dalla stretta collaborazione tra specialisti in studi economici, politici, giuridici, storici e strategici, provenienti anche da ambiti non accademici – e dalla partnership con analoghe istituzioni di tutto il mondo.
The Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI) is an independent think tank dedicated to being a resource for government officials, business executives, journalists, civil servants, students and the public at large wishing to better understand international issues. It monitors geopolitical areas as well as major trends in international affairs.
Founded in Milan in 1934, ISPI is the only Italian Institute – and one of the few in Europe – to place research activities side by side to training, organization of international conferences, and the analysis of the international environment for businesses. Comprehensive interdisciplinary analysis is achieved through close collaboration with experts (academics and non-academics alike) in political, economic, legal, historical and strategic studies and through an ever-growing network of think tanks, research centers and Universities in Europe and beyond
