The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been exerting many visible impactson globalization, urbanization and development since its inauguration in2013.While BRI is framed by China as an inclusive platform of multilateralcooperation, it has been met with mixed perceptions in Europe. 


These disputing narratives necessitate a sober analysis of thenature, dynamics and influence of the BRI: to what extent has BRI shapedthe pattern of infrastructure connectivity, urban development and regionaland spatial integration? How can we reimagine this connectivity plan as akey driving force of new globalization? And, what are the scope and depthof impact of COVID pandemic on the cross-border engagement associatedwith BRI?


In this webinar, Prof. Chen Xiangming, a renowned scholar in global urban studies, will present his newpoints of view and analysis on these critical issues.This will be based on his latest BRI book projectpublished jointly by Taylor & Francis and the Regional Studies Association. Prof. Jørgen Delman of University of Copenhagen will share his insights on BRI’s green dimension and local dynamics. Senior ResearcherHans Jørgen Gåsemyr from Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, as the commentator, will be offeringa Nordic perspective.
