This year’s Capstone project focused on how countries are employing investment restrictions against a rising China. Countries of focus included advanced industrial democracies—Germany, Australia and Japan. In addition, the team also focused on countries partaking in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, largely across southeast Asia—Malaysia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The Capstone team was tasked with identifying patterns among both the countries and the methods, as well as what that means for investment restrictions against China over both the near and long term.
