|Title:||China engages the Global South: from Bandung to the Belt and Road Initiative||Authors:||Liu, Hong||Keywords:||Social sciences::Political science||Issue Date:||2022||Source:||Liu, H. (2022). China engages the Global South: from Bandung to the Belt and Road Initiative. Global Policy, 13(S1), 11-22. https://dx.doi.org/10.1111/1758-5899.13034||Project:||04INS000136C430||Journal:||Global Policy||Abstract:||This article addresses China’s engagement with the Global South regarding the transnational transfer of knowledge and policy. It argues that China’s active participation in the Bandung Conference constituted historical capital in legitimating its (leadership) role in the Global South and as an alternative modernity. The past decade has witnessed the growing importance of the Global South for China. Apart from a geopolitical motive, China’s expanding economic ties with the developing world serve as an overarching framework facilitating transnational knowledge transfer, with the centrality of development reinforced by an institutionalization drive. The essay concludes that China’s engagement with the Global South in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative has been shaped by the complex logics of domestic political economy and changing global geopolitics, not all of which are within China’s control. A stakeholder-centric approach, therefore, will be beneficial to all countries concerned.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/162279||ISSN:||1758-5880||DOI:||10.1111/1758-5899.13034||Rights:||© 2021 Durham University and John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
