The notion of crime as an illegal act that is punishable by a government authority implies a clear differentiation between right and wrong. Mass incarceration further symbolizes the concept that a physical space drawn in bars and walls can impose a simple order onto a world that defies borders and neat categories. The purpose of punishment is to avenge, to incapacitate, and to deter, but does it work? Is justice served more than it is not? And might the abuses of mass incarceration be inherent to its practice? This series of international films takes a closer look at different interpretations of crime and punishment and what they say about a country’s values, collective identities, and understanding of history.

One Belt, One Road: Examining China's Development Agenda and Foreign Policy
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM


One Belt, One Road: Examining China's Development Agenda and Foreign Policy

Thursday, November 8, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

The Belt and Road Initiative was announced by Chinese President Xi in 2013, ushering in a new phase of Chinese engagement regionally and globally. With broad goals to enhance China’s trade relationships through Central Asia and into Europe, as well as East Asia, Oceana, and Africa along maritime routes, the Initiative has the capacity to make China the most significant global power in the 21st century. What will this mean for China’s neighbors, trading partners, and other global superpowers? What could be the long-term economic impacts of Chinese infrastructure development in African and Asian countries - and these countries’ role as consumers of Chinese exports? And as China increases the development of large scale physical infrastructure across Asia and into the Arctic, what new security threats might countries such as the US, India, Japan, and Australia face as a result? Join CGA for an examination of the shifting landscapes of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Moderator: Carolyn Kissane, Clinical Associate Professor and Academic Director, NYU SPS Center for Global Affairs
