Introduction of the Lecture:

Under the Premiership of David Cameron, the UK strove to establish itself as China’s best friend in Europe. After the vote in the UK to leave the EU, and Cameron’s replacement by Theresa May, what are the prospects for a continuation of this warm relationship in the future? This lecture explains how different voices and interests try to influence the UK government’s position towards China, and how UK policy has changed over time. While the new leadership has looked again at the basis of the previous policy towards China, the UK remains committed to establishing a good relationship with China, and is keen to benefit from commercial opportunities that Chinese initiatives like the Belt and Road might provide in the future.
