China's Long March 2.0 – The Belt and Road Initiative as development model, 2018

Uwe Hoering

Is the east wind defeating the west wind? Will China’s “New Silk Roads” initiative lead to greater prosperity and security worldwide? Or does this development model bring with it more authoritarianism and conflict?

China's Long March 2.0

Beijing’s “Belt and Road” initiative ties in with the former global political significance of the “Middle Kingdom” and at the same time draws up a blueprint for future greatness. By expanding transport infrastructure, energy supply and economic corridors between Asia, Africa and Europe, a “new golden age of globalization” is to be introduced.

In eleven chapters, Uwe Hoering traces central aspects of the project and questions whether this development strategy is compatible with democratic conditions, social and ecological justice, the protection of human and minority rights and the reduction of conflicts.

The book is also available in German language.
