Worldviews of Aspiring Powers

“Worldviews of Aspiring Powers” focuses on identifying and tracking the internal foreign policy debates in five countries: China, Japan, India, Russia, and Iran. By understanding how these major and aspiring powers think about their own national security, international economic policymaking, identity and power, and the role of the United States in the world, this project will illuminate the implications for U.S. global leadership in the twenty-first century. “Worldviews of Aspiring Powers” is supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

The Worldviews project consists of two phases:

Phase 1- 2009-2011

Phase 2- 2011- 2013
