Tuned-in or Tone Deaf? Beijing’s Response to the BRI Backlash

Grant Year: 2022


Bradley Parks and Ammar Malik will analyze China’s responses to negative reactions to its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). They will expand a database of case studies of BRI projects, examine findings from survey research to identify changes in the perception of China and the BRI in recipient countries, and analyze whether China’s aid policies changed toward those countries. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports.
