On the New Silk Road

„I’m a perpetually traveling writer and documentary filmmaker who focuses on New Silk Road development. I’ve been on the road since ’99, reporting from over 90 countries. I am the author of „On the New Silk Road,“ which tells the story of the three years that I spent traveling across Eurasian on the various corridors of the New Silk Road / Belt and Road.“ Wade Shepard

Dossier: The New Silk Roads

China is pursuing ambitious plans with its “Belt and Road Initiative”—in Asia and beyond. Long-established as an economic powerhouse, the country along these New Silk Roads is also making a name for itself as a player in development policy. Many observers are already speaking of an alternative era of globalization. The West, however, remains skeptical. The fact is that relations to China shape debates and political action worldwide—reason enough to take a closer look at both the opportunities as well as the risks. Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung

Silk Road Headlines

Die Silk Road Headlines sind zwar kein Blog im engeren Sinne, aber die wöchentliche Zusammenstellung des Clingendael Institute (Niederlande) von Artikeln und Studien, die frei zugänglich sind, ist eine gute Informationsquelle.

The People’s Map of Global China

„Using an interactive, open access, and online ‘map’ format, we are collaborating with nongovernmental organisations, journalists, trade unions, academics, and the public at large to provide updated and updatable information on various dimensions of Global China in their localities. The Map consists of profiles of countries and projects, sortable by project parameters, Chinese companies and banks involved, and their social, political, and environmental impacts.  This is a ‘people’s’ map in two ways. First, our content attempts to trace the global imprint of China focusing on the experiences of the people most affected by it. For this reason, you will discover that our profiles have a strong focus on issues related to labour rights, environment, land, Indigenous communities, etc. Second, our map relies on the input of a growing network of people who often hail from the places they are discussing, who have been conducting in-depth research on the various facets of Global China in their localities, and/or are working directly with communities impacted by these projects.“ THE MAP Editorial Board
