In the Liberal International Order since the end of the Cold War, China has been adapting itself and adopting a wide range of prevailing norms and rules. With the rise of China, China has new willingness and capacity to proactively engage in the reshaping of international rules, though as one of the key rule-shapers. China prefers the concert strategy in its co-shaping strategy, hoping to shape the rules within inclusive regional and global institutions. However, it also feels the need to to shape new rules and institutions from outside, like the AIIB and NDB. How to balance these two strategies is of critical importance for the future of international order.
