Wang Junsheng;the National Institute of International Strategy,the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences;
The concept of the community of common destiny has become a guideline of the new government of China to carry out its diplomacy toward neighboring countries. The concept of the community of common destiny is put forward in the context of China paying unprecedented attention to its periphery as a rising power. See from the leaders' speeches and specific practices,the intention mainly involving the periphery is very obvious,with the connotation including these three levels: a community of interest,new values and ideas,and responsibility awareness. This paper argues that the construction of the peripheral community of common destiny is facing the following difficulties: the historical and territorial issues between China and some neighboring countries lead to a lower political mutual trust,the negative role is being played by the United States,and the concept itself needs to be further clarified. In view of this,in terms of the specific construction of the peripheral community of common destiny,firstly China should take advantage to its economic and trade strength; secondly,a joint research on the community of common destiny should be carried out; thirdly,China should strengthen the people-to-people and cultural ties with its neighboring countries; and fourthly,China should promote the building of institutions.
