Comparing U.S. and Chinese Infrastructure Development Abroad

Grant Year: 2016


Francis Fukuyama and Raymond Levitt will lead an effort to examine whether the United States can become more effective at projecting its influence around the world through the support of infrastructure projects. To assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of U.S. capabilities, they will compile a database of infrastructure projects and commission a series of comparative case studies on infrastructure projects carried out by the United States and China. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
