China's Fontier: Institutions, Infrastructure and Landscapes in Pakistan's CPEC
As the current centrepiece of the Chinese One Belt-One Road (OBOR) initiative, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor consists of a $46 billon dollar (and growing) commitment to upgrade and build new infrastructure, energy projects and industrial zones across the entire length of Pakistan. The new routes will connect Kashgar in Western China to Karachi and Gwadar ports on the Indian Ocean in Southern Pakistan. This one-day conference is a platform to bring together interested researchers and stakeholders to interrogate broad themes relating to the transforming institutions, infrastructure and landscapes of this region.
