About this book

The China Question: Contestations and Adaptations provides fresh perspectives on, and empirics about, China’s international relations through the lens of the local and regional configurations and developments around the world. While China’s foreign policy strategies have received much attention, and in particular the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the local contestations and/or adaptations that China provokes in the countries and regions it engages remain under-researched. In this book, a global collection of scholars examines how countries, societies, and individuals around the world are responding to China‘s rise.
