Miller publishes a column on the influence of BRI beneficiary countries
Manjari Chatterjee Millercurrently a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and on leave from the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations, published an op-ed in Hindustan time China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
In his article, titled “Beneficiary countries hold the key to the success of China’s BRI,” Miller dissects China’s global infrastructure development strategy and how recipient countries can influence it. She points specifically to South Asia where BRI results have been mixed. For example, the policy has been adamantly opposed in India, which “when disgruntled can and does pressure its smaller neighbors to reject overtures from China”. In conclusion, Miller asserts that “the BRI, its functioning, its successes and its failures should not simply be assessed by looking at China’s goals and interests.”
