Episode details

Danny and Derek are joined by Juliet Lu, assistant professor at the University of British Columbia and co-host of The Belt and Road Podcast, to discuss, you guessed it: China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)! They get into China’s ideological vision for the project, the Sinophobia around it, how the project compares with non-Chinese institutions’ infrastructure development, the soft power angle, different populations’ reactions to Chinese-branded projects, the debt discourse, and more.
