The Belt and Road Research Platform brings together researchers and everyone who is interested in all aspects of China’s Belt and Road Initiative. The website beltroadresearch.com independently provides easy access to information, news, and expert analysis related to the BRI from global perspectives. For example, the Clingendael Silk Road Headlines are published here every week. At the same time, this website is the ideal place for international researchers to publish their work on BRI-related topics, to connect with one another and to gather the attention of a large audience.
