Higher Seminar in International Relations: Understanding China’s ‘Belt and Road Initiative’

November 26, 2019 - 13:00-14:30

China’s massive ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ (BRI) – designed to build infrastructure and coordinate policymaking across Eurasia and eastern Africa – is widely seen as a clearly-defined, top-down ‘grand strategy’, reflecting Beijing’s growing ambition to reshape, or even dominate, regional and international order. Is this view mistaken and if so, what does it say about the realities of Chinese foreign policy?

Speaker
Jinghan Zeng
is Chair Professor in China and International Studies in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University. He specialises in China’s domestic politics and foreign policy.
