Eurasia Group’s report, analyzing top risks for 2018 has been published in January. According to this professional political consultancy organization, risk number one is China – a rising power which prefers to operate in a power vacuum. This standpoint may contradict other authors who explain that China prefers international stability and predictability, especially given its long-term strategies and objectives. However, according to Ian Bremmer, China may take advantage of present international system plasticity and therefore distort the rules to its advantage. This, in turn, may accelerate process of recreating its external environment.
