Abstract:

As a result of implementing its Belt and Road Initiative, China is forging a new developmental path. To capture its essence, a new theory is called for. I shall call this theory ‘geo-developmentalism’. I shall define it and discuss its ten core features, including the win-win principle. Based on this new form of development, I will explore some future directions for research. These include making the case for the rise of neo-transnationalism and neo-globalization. These new developments challenge yet complement the existing neoliberal order. In the ensuing evolution, is a new world order in the making?
