The concept of a ‘community of shared future for mankind’ seems to be thriving and  inspirational, since it focuses on the shared responsibility of States (and other actors) to create a shared future for mankind. This shared responsibility is to a certain extent in line with the solidarity and responsibility sharing in the EU (e.g. the SRS reflected in the modified Dublin system), USA (e.g. the cooperation with UNHCR to resettle refugees) and Australia (e.g. the cooperation with Nauru and Papua New Guinea to host refugees in offshore centers). 
 
Nevertheless, it seems that the asylum regulations, and Court decisions in “the West”  have become more restrictive in allowing asylum seekers in its territory. Consequently, for the asylum seekers, who would qualify as refugees, it might be more difficult to access a life in safety and dignity.
 
Even more, since temporary restrictions are set, partially because of  the  large  movements of refugees and migrants. Similar to China, “the West” donated millions of US dollars or goods to refugees (camps or projects), established funds, and provide assistance to third countries within the region in order to deal with large movements of refugees.
 
Thus, the level of impact and effectiveness to respond to global challenges, like large movement of refugees, is highly dependent on the effort, responsibility and willingness of each State. Considering China’s expressed commitment and multiple donations, (additional) funds, and political will, it seems that China has been taking a key role to deal with the large movements of refugees.
