The CLD project is engaging with a number of Research Associates to help build a broader network of scholars working and sharing information on the state of the field. A series of Research Briefs has been initiated to kick-start this process, with Research Associates writing about current topics and specific aspects of their research related to the legal and regulatory challenges to Chinese outbound capital in developing states, including the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The next set of five Research Briefs, covering a wide range of topics, is now available.
