The Global Security Initiative (GDI) — Study Materials

The Global Security Initiative (GSI) is one of the three mutually-reinforcing initiatives launched by President Xi Jinping in recent years to foster a global community of development with a shared future.

Through the GSI, China calls for adapting to the profound changes in the international landscape through solidarity, addressing traditional and non-traditional security risks and challenges with a win-win mindset, and creating a new path to security that features dialogue over confrontation, partnership over alliance, and win-win results over zero-sum game. The initiative aims at building a security community.

China released the Global Security Initiative Concept Paper, which expounds the core ideas and principles of the GSI, and identifies the priorities, platforms and mechanisms of cooperation. Through the mediation of China, Saudi Arabia and Iran achieved historic reconciliation, setting a fine example for countries in the region to resolve disputes and differences and achieve good neighborly relations through dialogue and consultation. On hotspot issues like the Ukraine crisis and the Palestine-Israel conflict, China has always promoted peace talks and negotiation, championed political settlement of crises. China also worked to enhance global climate governance and released the Global AI Governance Initiative, making its contributions to coping with various non-traditional security threats.

China’s actions to implement the GSI have been firm and resolute, which continuously enhances the initiative’s appeal and influence. So far, over 100 countries and international organizations have voiced support for the GSI.
