Chapter Summary

Over the past three decades, the Chinese international relations (IR) community has developed self-consciousness for the independent status of academic discipline, for the importance of contending thoughts, and for excellence in scholarship. The thirty years since 1978 has witnessed rapid development of the IR discipline in China, a remarkable time of learning, exploring, and reflecting. This chapter discusses the progress and problems of International Relations Theory, henceforth known as IRT, development in China. The chapter is composed of three parts. The first defines the framework for analysis and its basic elements; the second reviews the progress that IRT research has made so far in China; and the third analyzes the problems in China's IRT studies. The chapter concludes with a prediction for the future development of IRT research in China.
