dc.description.abstractThis thesis sets out to explore China’s use of soft power in Myanmar. It examines the different policies China is carrying out in the country, and considers the effects of these policies in three particular areas: cultural diplomacy; political values and ideology; and legitimacy and moral authority. Linking China’s use of cultural diplomacy together with its foreign policy and legitimacy creates a framework to allow us to gain a broad understanding of its uses of soft power in Myanmar. Although the long-term effects of China’s attempts to exercise soft power policies in Myanmar are still unclear, it has so far struggled to achieve success, particularly because of a failure to align its rhetoric and actions. Nevertheless, throughout this thesis I suggest that China has recognised the importance of the use of soft power, and because of Myanmar's economic dependency on the country, China has sometimes been able to adapt and ‘experiment’ with how soft power policies can best be combined with hard power to achieve its aims.nob
