May 24, 2023

China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been a double-edged sword for countries on the receiving end of Beijing's financial assistance. While the BRI remains an integral part of Beijing's foreign economic policy, it reflects China's broader goal for engaging with the Global South through economic development and garner support for its international security interests. In particular, the informal economic engagement stemming from BRI departs from China's established economic policy and yields unexpected consequences for host states.
