THE RISE OF CHINA: ANALYZING CHINA'S GROWING INFLUENCE ON THE GLOBAL STAGE AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR THE EXISTING WORLD ORDER
The rise of China has been one of the most significant geopolitical developments in recent years, with far-reaching implications for the existing world order. This paper examines China’s growing influence on the global stage and its implications for political, economic, and social structures. Using a mixed-methods approach, this study analyzes the factors driving China’s rise, the challenges it poses to existing power structures, and the potential consequences for global governance. Findings indicate that China’s growing influence is driven by a combination of economic, military, and political factors, and that its rise is likely to have a profound impact on the global distribution of power and resources. Recommendations include increased dialogue and cooperation between China and other nations to address the challenges and opportunities presented by China’s rise.
