The National Security and Human Rights Dimensions of China’s Presence in U.S. Capital Markets

Grant Year: 2019


Roger Robinson and Andrew Davenport will examine the extent to which the United States should restrict or regulate the access of Chinese firms to Western capital. They will track the presence of Chinese firms in U.S. debt and equity markets and assess whether those firms engage in activities undermining U.S. interests or violating human rights. The team will engage financial and government leaders to develop options, based on disclosure requirements or other regulations, to prevent malign actors from accessing Western capital markets. The project’s findings will appear in a monograph and a series of briefings.
