Building Power: China’s Belt and Road Initiative in Historical Perspective

This talk examines the channels through which China’s Belt and Road Initiative might expand China’s political influence in Asia. It draws a particular comparison to Japan’s economic overtures to Southeast Asia in the late 1980s and 1990s to argue that the BRI is unlikely to lead to a Chinese-led economic order.
