Dr CHAN, Sze Wan Debby
陳詩韻
BA CityU; LLM (human rights) HKU; PhD HKU
 
Visiting Fellow
Debby Chan obtained her PhD in politics from the University of Hong Kong. She researches China’s economic statecraft and public diplomacy. In particular, she is interested in the China-backed Belt and Road Initiative and responses of foreign public to the rising power’s grand strategy. Contrary to state-centric international relations theories, she argues that societal actors can sometimes influence international outcomes even in the context of asymmetrical economic cooperation.
