LIU, Tony Tai-Ting  e  TSAI, Tung-Chieh. Swords into ploughshares? China's Soft Power strategy in Southeast Asia and its challenges1. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.spe, pp.28-48. ISSN 0034-7329.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0034-7329201400203.

Since the 1990s, alongside China's economic growth, the international community has fostered a general anxiety towards a "China threat." In order to relieve itself from suspicion, China adopted the dual strategies of "harmonious worldview" and "good neighbor policy." The strategies led to the use of soft power in China's foreign policy. China aimed to reduce security concerns implied by the threat theory by supporting an image that caters to international peace and development. This article seeks to explain how China achieves its interests in Southeast Asia through the use of soft power. The authors address the concepts of "harmonious worldview" and "good neighbor policy" and how the twin strategies and soft power have shaped China's foreign policy in recent years. This article aims to provide insights into China's policy options in Southeast Asia in the near future.

Palavras-chave : China; Good Neighbor Policy; Harmonious Worldview; Soft Power; Southeast Asia.
