Foreign-Focused Propaganda: China’s Belt and Road Initiative

In this episode of Building the Future, Joshua Eisenman, author of Red China’s Green Revolution and Assistant Professor at the Keogh School of Global Affairs at Notre Dame, sits down with Dan Runde to talk about the specifics of China’s development narrative, and how the country leverages this narrative to advance its strategic objectives in the rest of the world. The two also discuss where the U.S. fits in within this dynamic, and how it should frame its own role in the developing world going forward, especially in Africa.
