Event description
Insurmountable Asymmetry? Influence and Agency along China's Belt and Road

About this Event

What is China’s Belt and Road initiative (BRI) and is it distinguishable from China’s broader foreign policy in the developing world? Are the vast asymmetries between China’s power and that of its smaller and weaker BRI partners insurmountable, or can they at least partially be overcome? Please join a group of experts on China’s foreign policy in the developing world to discuss the latest thinking and research on these issues. Professor Joshua Eisenman (HNC ‘02, SAIS ‘03), Associate Professor, Keough School of Global Affairs, University of Notre Dame , will open the program with an overview of BRI and his research on China’s relationship with African countries, followed by discussion of the topic with a SAIS panel.

Moderator: Professor Carla Freeman ,Associate Research Professor and Director of FPI, SAIS

Panelists: Daniel Markey, Senior Research Professor, SAIS ; Yoon Jung Park, Associate Director, China-Africa Research Initiative, SAIS
