Abstract

In line with the culture-oriented approach, the major contribution of this chapter is to establish a new concept of “International Leadership with Chinese Characteristics” (ILCC). More specifically, this chapter identifies that “the logic of relationality,” derived from three Chinese IR-related political culture (Tianxia, Humane Authority, and the State of Equilibrium and Harmony), is the core element of shaping the Chinese worldview of IR that is characterized by three major features of relationality, processuality, and inclusiveness. Based on the Chinese worldview of IR and the logic of relationality, the chapter conceptualizes the ILCC as a triad framework consisting of facilitative leadership, constructive leadership, and exemplary leadership. This conceptual framework is regarded as an interpretive approach to understanding China’s influence on the existing architecture and process of global governance.
