Abstract
Legal scholar Pitman Potter espouses engagement with China on issues of mutual interest, while reserving the ability to respond on disagreements. Quick take:<br>- Although China has lately become more alienated from the international system, neither climate change nor the pandemic can be dealt with effectively without it.<br>- Beijing's COVID response has been a combination of initial containment and control, gradual openness, and tentative international cooperation.<br>- China prioritizes economic interests when considering any climate commitments and is not swayed by international requests.<br><br>Part 1 of a series on the pros and cons of reengagement with China. Read part 2, Engagement with China Is Not an End in Itself
