Abstract: 中國外交政策策略之一是讓孔子學院在世界各地指數式的增長,以促進中國語言與文化的發展,進而改善其在國際體系中的形象、關係與影響力。本論文探討中國政府如何運用在墨西哥設立孔子學院的外交政策,加強其對墨西哥的權力和影響力,研究這之中實行的軟實力與文化外交之間的關係。透過不同個案,分析作為中國文化外交工具的三所墨西哥孔子學院的功能:奇瓦瓦自治大學孔子學院、墨西哥國立自治大學孔子學院、尤卡坦自治大學孔子學院。
The exponential growth of Confucius Institutes in the world is part of China's foreign policy strategies to promote its language and culture, and in turn improve its image, relationships, and influence in the international system. This thesis analyzes the relationship between soft power and cultural diplomacy implemented by the Chinese government in its foreign policy for the creation of the Confucius Institutes in Mexico as part of their strategy to strengthen its power and influence in Mexico. Through a multiple case study, the functioning of three Confucius Institutes in Mexico is analyzed as instruments of Chinese cultural diplomacy in Mexico: the Confucius Institute of the Autonomous University of Chihuahua, the Confucius Institute of the Autonomous University of Mexico and the Confucius Institute of the Autonomous University of Yucatan.
