Sinostan: China’s Inadvertent Empire
Mr Raffaello Pantucci Senior Fellow
Mr Raffaello Pantucci
This book project examines China’s relations with the five Central Asian powers – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, looking at the relationship through economic, political, security and cultural lenses. It is based on considerable on-the-ground research done over the past decade in all six countries (and beyond in India, Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan). It also seeks to make the case that China’s interests in Central Asia are fundamentally about Xinjiang, and the China’s relations with Central Asia provide a blueprint for the broader Belt and Road Initiative. The book will be published by Oxford University Press in the summer of 2021.
