As the permanent member of the Security Council with the deepest interests in "pariah states" such as North Korea and Iran, China can either be a major obstacle, or a useful ally, in efforts to target these states through the UN. This lecture will examine the conditions under which Beijing either supports or prevents action against pariah states, stating the implications for U.S. policy and for our understanding of contemporary Chinese diplomacy.
