Stockholm Observatory for Global China
The Stockholm Observatory for Global China (previously Stockholm Belt and Road Observatory) is an independent research network dedicated to questions arising in relation to China’s growing global footprint.
Gathering expertise from several leading Swedish institutions, the observatory serves as a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing for actors in academia, government, civil society and the business sector.
The observatory was officially launched at a seminar on 4 June, 2018. The event included discussions about how China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is impacting Sweden and Europe, how the BRI relates to Chinese global leadership, and how to handle challenges emerging from the initiative.
