Abstract

The Belt and Road Initiative is gradually moving China and its economy beyond the reach of Western sanctions and reducing the economic impact that a US naval blockade could have. Christer Ljungwall and Viking Bohman contend that, without a measured Western response, this could increase the likelihood of Chinese aggression in regional territorial disputes.
