- Kurzbeschreibung<p>The time has come to finally solve the quagmire in Afghanistan. Many recent concerns have been raised regarding the situation. For example, one of the main concerns is whether there could be another way that could lead to Afghanistan's security. This study attempts to address Chinese role in contributing to Afghanistan's stability through economic means. China in many ways should start to be seen as a potential factor that could lead to the stabilization of its own bordering region. Nowadays, many countries are rather afraid of Chinese policies and tend be rather cautious towards it. The solution for that would be that countries rather than being afraid of Chinese policy should take a more opportunistic approach, where China is seen as a country to benefit others. <br>Chinese reluctance to be militarily involved in Afghanistan has presented huge criticisms towards its policy, mainly from the U.S.' point of view. China is even being considered as a 'free rider' in Afghanistan. Meaning that at the expense of others that try to contribute to a more secure Afghanistan, China is getting its economic benefits out of this country without taking too much care to its security. For the time being, it seems like a controversy where China wants to invest heavily into Afghanistan, but does not want to contribute to any military interventions for its security sake. The question that lies ahead is whether China has any interests in a secure Afghanistan and how far China is willing to contribute to the process of stabilizing Afghanistan. Could the economical collaboration become an important aspect that contributes to more security in Afghanistan? Could the capitalist peace theory give some deeper understanding in this respect? Answering these questions is not something that can be done easily. One of the reasons is that in the field of studies about this particular issue, not much has been researched about. Both countries do express some interests in mutual cooperation, however, to clearly come to a conclusion of whether China is or could be an important factor that would lead to Afghanistan's development and stability requires further research. Nevertheless, enough information exists to shed some light on the issue through the presentation of the case study as well as to provide a starting point for broader analyses.</p>

- LeseprobeTextprobe:<br>Chapter 2, China s Foreign Security Policy:<br>This chapter illustrates China s growing economic power and the increased energy demand. To achieve rapid and continuous economic growth, China is seriously planning to look beyond its borders to strengthen regional cooperation and to further unite regional states. The chapter will also show China s desire to promote the concept of a harmonious world consisting of lasting peace accompanied by development; where all countries work together to this common goal. To be sure, mutual suspicion and distrust are obstacles to effectively implementing this concept. Another principle that will be explored is the New Security Concept . This concept is based on the idea that emphasizing common interests will contribute to social progress. The New Security Concept introduces a view of the world, and China s role within it, where force is no longer a valid instrument for conflict resolution. Instead dialogue and mutual cooperation will be used to resolve disputes. Further, the way of promoting such dialogue and mutual cooperation will be used to resolve disputes. Finally, the chapter will show that some critics question the validity of the New Security Concept . This is because they do not believe it can be implemented equally because of social, cultural and economic differences among the countries. Some would even further argue that the New Security Concept is just a tool to pull the wool over Western eyes .<br>2.1, China s Emerging Awareness:<br>Since the late 1970s the People s Republic of China (PRC) has experienced extraordinary economic development through its transformation and opening policies for over 30 years. China s current international significance is to a large extent based on its rapidly growing economy. The Chinese economy became the world s second largest by overtaking Japan; in addition it also became a recognizable world power. China s economic power continues to increase every year with an average steady economic growth of almost 10% for the past 26 years. The country has a great impact on the global economy as a whole. China is the most populated country in the world and its economic power is ever expending, this makes it the world s largest energy consumer, which simultaneously shows that demands for energy efficient resources are enormous. These reasons among many others force China to have close interdependent relationships with the rest of the world and especially with the countries surrounding it. Many countries benefit from these relationships including China itself.<br>Throughout its recent history China has experienced a variety of changes
