Von China Erzählen. Eine historische Aufgabe?

Es wird derzeit viel über die vermeintlich „richtige“ China-Strategie diskutiert. Dabei neigt das in Europa und den USA praktizierte China-Bild teils zu extremer Vereinfachung der historischen Gegebenheiten von Chinas atemberaubenden Wandel. Einigkeit besteht, dass wir „mehr“ China-Kompetenz benötigen. Welches Wissen diese aber konkret beinhaltet, und wie wir von China erzählen sollten, sind Fragen, die wir uns nicht nur als Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler und noch dazu auf allen Ebenen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens stellen müssen.
