Conceptions of Strategic Space in Republican China

Video by Bill Hayton
August 23, 2023

In this video from NBR’s project Mapping China’s Strategic Space, Bill Hayton, Chatham House, examines how Republican Era China conceptualized its strategic space and the evolution, drivers, and instruments used to determine this space.

The video is part of a section on Learning from History that presents a collection of historical case studies, used for comparative purposes, that examine how rising or great powers, including China, have in the past defined their strategic space and the factors that led them to consider expanding it beyond the strict delineations of their national territory.
