Abstract:This bachelor's thesis focuses on analyzing the relationship between China and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a prominent multilateral platform. The objective is to examine the extent to which China utilizes the SCO for its own enrichment and interests. Through a comprehensive study, it has been established that the organization operates on the principle of mutual benefit, where all member states utilize the platform to achieve their personal goals. The aim is to answer the research question which is: "Is China aiming for hegemony in the Central Asian region through its cooperation with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization? A case study analyzing China's influence within the SCO." There is no substantial evidence indicating that China intentionally exploits the other member countries within the SCO.
