Many puzzles and contentions exist about China’s changing role in the global governance across a range of issue areas from regional financial integration to global climate change. While there has been a considerable focus on the implications of these changes for the rest of the world, the domestic drivers of such change - domestic actors’ political preferences and economic interests - remains understudied. This workshop aims to bridge the gap between the domestic and foreign dimensions of China’s global governance role and discuss in depth how various domestic interest groups’ political and economic preferences and China’s domestic institutional environment influence China’s global ambitions and actions (and vice versa).  It also discusses how Chinese policy makers achieve their goals through participation in international institutions (and at times the creation of new ones) and considers how China’s changing role in these international institutions affects the dynamics of global governance.
