China's Maritime Silk Road

The European Council on Foreign Relations published in April 2018 a policy brief titled "Blue China: Navigating the Maritime Silk Road to Europe" by Mathieu Duchatel and Alexandre Sheldon Duplaix.

While the focus of the study is Europe, the authors conclude that China's Maritime Silk Road is about power and international influence. Northeast Africa, especially Djibouti, the Red Sea, and the Suez Canal are an important part of this construct.
