1.IB DIPLOMA: History- (18 January 2011)   How did China‘s acceptance of the unequal treaties from 1942-44 (Nanking Treaty, Treaty of Bogue, Treaty of Wanghsia and the Treaty of Whampoa), in particular the acceptance of fixed tariffs and extraterritoriality, exhibit a lack of understanding of European state’s right of “national sovereignty?”

In answering this question review China’s concept of international affairs through the eyes of the Chinese tribute system.  Compare China’s tribute system with the European concept of national sovereignty.  For a better understanding of the European concept of national sovereignty and the basis of modern international law, see “Westphalian sovereignty” (Wikipedia) ” Peace of Westphalia” (Wikipedia)Answer how the Nanking Treaty and subsequent treaties imposed on China impinge on China’s national sovereignty.
