Briefs | Analyses n°23 – How Is the War in Ukraine Reshuffling the Cards for China?
Beijing has adopted an ambivalent diplomatic position in the face of the Russian invasion. It does not prevent its economic interests in Central Asia from being jeopardized by the war. Professor Markus Taube (Eurics Fellow, Spring 2022), who has conducted extensive research on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), investigates this impact. In the June issue of Briefs | Analyses, he shares his insights, giving us an overview of how the war undermines the BRI, hurts China’s soft power, and could reshape the world’s industrial centers of gravity.
