Diplomacia pública China como herramienta de Soft Power para el fortalecimiento de las relaciones con Argentina del 2008 al 2015
Rios Corredor, Angie Tatiana
Public diplomacy is an information and communication strategy used by governments to influence public opinion. China has used this tool to project its Soft Power in order to mitigate the fear of some states over its economic rise. Hu Jintao’s policy of peaceful rise is proof of that. Beginning in 2004, China began to relate differently, showing a more harmonious image of himself. The research presented here explores the relationship between China and Argentina, as marked by this type of diplomacy, assessing the relevance and the extent to which this has had in strengthening its relationship with states like Argentina. Thus, through the study of power resources (culture, political values and foreign policy) we can, firstly, know better the nature of the concept, and secondly, determine the impact of the Asian giant in Latin America, especially in Argentina.
