The next set of Research Briefs (RBs) from the CLD project has now been published.

These RBs, available here, have been written by invited Research Associates – a global network of early-career scholars and practitioners who are engaged in different types of work relating to the legal and regulatory dimensions of Chinese outbound capital in developing states. The latest set of Research Briefs provides snapshots of on-going work on a variety of CLD-related issues:

  • “Economic Migration of African Migrants to China in the Era of COVID-19: Tensions and Transitions” - Leigha Crout, Peking University.
  • “Chinese Mining Companies and their Social License to Operate in Zambia” - Jacqueline Muna Musiitwa, Zenizeni Sustainable Finance.
  • “Navigating Investments in Central Asia as Chinese Investors: A Case Study of Kyrgyzstan” - Boguang Yang, University of Pennsylvania.
  • The BRI Legal Frameworks and Caucasian Non-Recognition Obligations” - Otari Kakhidze, Tsinghua University.

  • “China and the Global Economic Architecture: Approaching the Challenges of the 2020s” - Guest contribution from Uzma Ashraf Barton & Douglas Arner, Hong Kong University.


As always, the opinions expressed in the RBs represent the views of the author alone.
