Narrazione, aspettative e politica internazionale. L'evoluzione della politica estera della Cina durante gli anni Novanta


The article investigates the evolution of the narrative elaborated by the Chinese Communist Party during Jiang Zemin's Presidency. It aims at highlighting, through an analysis of the official speeches pronounced by the Chinese political leadership, mainly by Jiang Zemin, how China's posture evolved in international relations from the late eighties to the late nineties. Hence, the narrative also plays a crucial role for setting the foreign policy agenda of a country. Furthermore, such article considers how alterations in national collective memory, which occurred in the narrative elaborated by the Chinese government during the nineties, can be interpreted as compatible with its leaders' expectations about the role of China in international affairs.
