I’ll be live-tweeting the @FletcherSchool #WeaponizedInterdependence conference on this thread. You can watch the conference live on WebEx using the following link:
The first panel is on cyberspace, chaired by @NadiyaKostyuk, features Susan Landau, Pasha Sharikov, Martha Finnemore, and @NTusikov. #weaponizedinterdependence
Susan Landau points out that there are chokepoints on the Internet that the United States is not exploiting, because for not it’s not in its interest to do so. Might that change in the future? You betcha. #weaponizedinterdependence

Possiamo affermare senza tema di smentita che #UK abbia una tradizione di eccellenze nella #SciTech (Science & Technology). Se il suo Gov riuscirà a gestire profittevolmente l'opportunità #silkroad #China (col "carburatore" a moneta sovrana £) l'#EZ sarà solo un brutto ricordo.
Il 4-1-2017 lessi (forse fra i primi) questa news: "La #Cina/#China ha appena presentato una nuova linea ferroviaria '#SilkRoad' che arriva fino a #Londra. Gli Stati Uniti dovrebbero essere preoccupati". Era chiarissima la sua portata economica.🚆💴💷💵…
Il piano avrebbe aiutato la #Cina, così come l'#Asia, ad acquisire solidi legami commerciali nel mondo. La #SilkRoad equivale ai collegamenti terrestri e la "strada" si riferisce a una rotta commerciale marittima con 71 paesi che fanno già parte del progetto, tra i quali 🇷🇺 e 🇳🇿.

Why frequent confusion about China's Belt & Road Initiative?
Answer: Failure to understand Chinese domestic politics

At @ForeignAffairs I highlight 2⃣domestic drivers 🚘 of #BRI #BeltandRoad

Paywall-wall 🆓 this week
The confusion surrounding BRI defies a stereotype of China’s leadership as strategic and coherent.

Because China is an autocracy, many assume that its leaders formulate farsighted grand strategies, which subordinates work to faithfully execute.

🇨🇳 Chinese regime is FAR FROM COHERENT

National agendas are formulated at top & proclaimed by leaders...

Yet implementation is left to a litany of committees, ministries & local governments, tasked with translating grand vision into concrete policies and projects

La Cina è vicina.

#Cina, navi da guerra di #Pechino in #Africa…
La Cina è vicina.

L'inaspettato volto umano della #Cina che sta "colonizzando" l'#Africa.
#Pechino non è solo il primo investitore nel Continente africano. Sono un centinaio le #Ong impegnate nel sociale.

La #Cina è vicina.

L'#Africa è già una colonia cinese.
Le multinazionali di #Pechino proseguono indisturbate la conquista del continente nero. Con un piano di investimenti da oltre 60 miliardi di dollari. E scarso rispetto per i diritti dei lavoratori

Word that @WhiteHouse plans to nominate #DavidMalpass to run the @WorldBank has several implications, which I'll touch on in this thread.
First, Bank staff will reel from the widespread frustration many felt w/Jim Kim's "big ideas" and reform agendas, now likely to be shred.
Second, Malpass shares many of ideas forwarded by GWBush-appointed @WorldBank leader Wolfowicz, including disdain for globalization, dislike of typically liberal development programs, and little respect for the expertise of Bank economists. He's on record anti-#WTO .
Third, Malpass is cut more from the cloth of Reagan than #Trump , which in the scheme of things is good news. But he shares @POTUS disdain for Xi's #beltandroad economic scheme and sees China as a threat. This could set the WB in >er competition w/China Development Bank.
