In May 2019, colleagues from all three campuses met in UNNC to finalise a research application on the Belt and Road Initiative. Colleagues included Professor Katharine Adeney (Politics and International Relations), Dr Afzal Ashraf (Politics and International Relations), Dr Ben Barton (Politics, History and International Relations), Professor Ahimsa Campos-Arciez (School of Environmental and Geographical Sciences), Dr Faith Chan (School of Geographical Sciences), Professor Emilian Kavalski (School of International Studies), Dr Chun-Yi Lee (Politics and International Relations), Dr Christian Mueller (School of International Studies) and Professor Xiaoling Zhang (School of International Communications).
The purpose of the visit was to finalise a grant application on the Belt and Road Initiative, in particular an assessment of, and engagement with, its historical, environmental, political, financial and geopolitical impacts. It builds on previous tricampus discussions held at the Lahore University of Management Sciences in May 2018, a workshop on the UK campus in September 2018 and a roundtable at UNM in January 2019.
This workshop was made possible by the Faculty of Social Sciences Inter Campus Mobility Fund, the School of Politics and International Relations, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, GISRS, the Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies and the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute.
