The PRC's perspectives on international law are not essentially the same as those of the predominantly Anglo-European international law powers. China's emergence as an active participant in international law and international institutions therefore has great significance for the development of international law. Focusing upon the example of territorial sovereignty, this article examines the competing perspectives and concludes that, while there have been, and remain, significant differences between Chinese and Anglo-European accounts of the international law on sovereignty, there is also growing convergence of views.
