In terms of financial contribution, China provides about 3 per cent of the peacekeeping budget, significantly less than most other Security Council members. 42 Consequently, China will need to increase its financial contributions if it wishes to play a role commensurate with its Security Council and global status. Moreover, China’s increasing social interactions in the UN peacekeeping regime means that there will be expectations of China to expand its troop commitments in areas where there are critical needs.

14 What much of these analyses miss, however, is China’s desire to be seen as both a member of the developing world and as a ‘responsible great power’ that seeks to uphold the military and normative status quo of the international order, and how this may be reflected in Chinese foreign policy. The two identities can lead to very different and contradictory policy discourses in the PRC, and it is imperative that these are analysed in greater detail to get a fuller picture of how China formulates its foreign policy.
