Abstract
This Memorandum is part of a broader assessment of the rise of China and its impact on regional and global security. China’s rapid accretion of geopolitical weight ensures that other great powers will be increasingly wary in their dealings with it. In this context, China’s great power rivals in its own neighbourhood assume growing importance both to Beijing and to Western capitals. This Memorandum examines all but the smallest South Asian states in the context of their relations with China. Particular emphasis is placed on potential flashpoints between China and South Asian states, especially on the Himalayan border and in the Indian Ocean.
