On the newest episode of China Pivots West, ANDREW SMALL discusses the topic of his new book The China-Pakistan Axis–the often neglected relationship between Beijing and Islamabad. As someone who has traveled and done research in the region, Small is uniquely qualified to comment on this important facet of Chinese foreign policy. We also touch on the complicating roles of Afghanistan and Xinjiang.
Andrew Small is a transatlantic fellow with the Asia program at the German Marshall Fund of the United States, which he has helped lead since 2006. His research focuses on U.S.-China relations, EU-China relations, Chinese policy in South and South-West Asia, and China’s role in “problem” and fragile states. He was based in GMF’s Brussels office for five years, where he established the Asia program and the Stockholm China Forum, GMF’s biannual China policy conference.
