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

Grant Year: 2021


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 twenty-three recipient countries, and analyze whether China’s aid policies changed toward those countries. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports.
