The China-led Belt and Road Initiative and its Reflections: The Crisis of Hegemony and Changing Global Orders

Mehdi Parvizi Amineh

This book analyzes the origins and the impacts of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) on diplomacy, economy (trade, investment, finance), and security among selected host countries and regions in Asia, Africa, and the European Union.

By examining the geopolitical economy of BRI activities, it concisely describes the impact of the rise of China and its BRI policy strategy on the reshaping of world order and global governance. This volume explores the BRI by addressing several key questions including:

- Why did the Chinese leadership set up the BRI?
- What are the activities of BRI projects in the participating countries and related regions?
- What are the challenges to the successful implementation of the BRI in the various countries and regions?

Moreover, through its analysis of the abovementioned questions, it provides novel contributions to the ongoing scholarly debates between Chinese and non-Chinese scholars - among others, the debate surrounding the "rise of China" and its impact on global governance.

Featuring an extensive variety of expert contributors, this study will be an essential reading for students and scholars of International Relations and Global Political Economy as well as Chinese politics and those with an interest in the Belt and Road Initiative more broadly.
