    The Challenge to the Challenge: The Belt and Road Initiative’s Implications for Liberal Trade and (Digital) Finance and the Response in Other Countries

    This SCRITPS project considers the implications of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for the liberal script. It focuses on two policy areas, namely trade and finance. Both are critical for the potential re-allocation of wealth across borders. The project investigates how governments respond to the challenge of the BRI, and what explains the variation in responses.
