Min Ye, an Associate Professor at the Pardee School of Global Studies and a Faculty Associate at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, recently gave a talk exploring the origins, motivations, and implementation of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), and examined the various impacts of COVID-19 on the future of the BRI.
The talk was based on Prof. Ye’s newest book, titled The Belt Road and Beyond: State-Mobilized Globalization in China: 1998–2018 (Cambridge University Press 2020).
A recording of the talk can be viewed above.
The book explores the motivations and strategies behind China’s global economic expansion and considers the implications of the country’s status as a global power on both China and the world. The book is, in part, a result of Prof. Ye’s work as a Pardee Center Faculty Research Fellow from 2015-2018, where she led a project that included fieldwork in China, annual events, and the development of a network of experts on the BRI.
