China y la gobernanza global: a tres años del inicio de las operaciones del Banco Asiático de Inversión en Infraestructura

Diego Telias


Un debate creciente en la literatura de relaciones internacionales es el de la contestación a la gobernanza global. Dentro de esta discusión sobresalen los artículos que analizan cómo se ha relacionado China con la gobernanza global. Esta investigación se inserta en este intercambio y busca ahondar en ¿cuál es la estrategia mediante la cual China se involucra con la gobernanza global? Para contribuir a esta discusión este artículo propone un estudio del caso del Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank. Tras analizar los objetivos de la creación del banco, su diseño institucional, su relación con otros organismos, los países que lo integran y su funcionamiento en los primeros tres años, se concluye que la estrategia de China hacia la gobernanza global en este caso es a través de nuevas iniciativas que adhieren capas adicionales para complementar las instituciones actuales.
