The Kadir Has University Center of International and European Studies (CIES) Commentary series offers op ed style insights on topical issues of interest to the research areas the CIES focuses on. In a recent commentary, Dr George Tzogopoulos analyses China’s policy in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. In particular, he explores whether the increasing number of Chinese investment might give Beijing the opportunity to foster integration as well as to politically capitalise and undertake a leading diplomatic role.
