February 6, 2019

Drawing on a global database of media articles, we quantitatively assess perceptions of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in different countries and regions.

Interestingly, there is no significant difference in perceptions of the BRI between countries that officially participate in the BRI and those that do not.
