In recent years, the breaking and making of international rules have become the focus of attention of the international community. The dispute over international rules becomes increasingly intense, ranging from Western countries’ intense conflicts with China and Russia on the principles of non-interference in others’ internal affairs, to the U.S. promotion of “Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement "(TPP) to establish the “next-generation” trade standards, to “quantitative index” on climatic change clearly set up by Europe for the developing countries.
The essence of the dispute is the transfer and competition of dominant power in international affairs, which reflects the transition between new and old international pattern and the changes in international balance of power. Multi-polarization and democratization of international relations are the irresistible trend. The financial crisis accelerates the rise of developing countries and the international order with United States and the West as center established after the Second World War has been outdated, which requires tremendous changes and adjustments in the world. At the same time, as Western countries are currently trapped in many crises, they attempt to resolve the problems by modifying existing rules, which arouses opposition and resistance from major developing countries. Therefore, the dispute of international rules has actually evolved into the “dispute between the North and the South” under new circumstance.
