IB2017/22: Pacific Island Countries, China & Sustainable Development Goals Part 3: Chinese scholarships in the Pacific

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This In Brief is the third in a four-part series that explores China’s development cooperation with Pacific island countries (PICs) according to the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The previous two parts focused on China–PICs broad engagement on the SDGs and the Belt and Road initiative. Building on the authors’ research, supported by a recent survey of 46 PIC recipients of Chinese scholarships, this paper analyses the role that increasing numbers of scholarships play in projecting Chinese soft power, encouraging better understanding of Chinese foreign policy and culture, supporting capacity building in PICs, and the potential to support SDG implementation in the region.
