Summary/Abstract: Under the fifth generation of leaders, a conceptual shift in China’s foreign policy is becomingabundantly apparent. Xi Jinping is more clearly jettisoning long-standing Deng Xiaoping’s foreign policydictum of “hide and bide,” calling for big power diplomacy and a great revitalisation of the Chinesenation. This is not merely rhetoric. China is becoming more active in its closest neighbourhood andAsia, and is expanding its influence worldwide. Apart from coining new diplomatic catchphrases to winhearts and minds, China is establishing new institutions as an alternative to the Western-led globalarchitecture, to reflect its ascendancy and normative power.
