China and Europe on the New Silk Road
Connecting Universities across Eurasia
Keywords:China, Europe, Higher education, Belt and Road Initiative, New Silk Road
This timely edited volume examines the relationship between European and Chinese higher education blocs, which is being strengthened and mediated through the New Silk Road (NSR) initiative. The book gathers together 20 chapters that hit at this topic from different angles, but all still coherently point out the main argument of the book: that the NSR initiative is contributing to the creation of a new equilibrium between the two blocs and that China is emerging as an equal partner in this new equilibrium, moving itself out of being a mere importer of higher education. The volume is a valuable contribution to the discussions of international and multipolar higher education literature.
