The monograph looks at the socioeconomic and political implications of the CPEC for Pakistan and attempts to provide a novel academic perspective to an area of study that has long been dominated by journalistic, news-like articles. The research gives insight into some of the most pertinent challenges of governance the CPEC raises but also highlights the diverse set of opportunities the mega-project has to offer. It advocates for urgent policy reform in the management of CPEC projects in order to prioritize the potential of local economies and pushes for a human development based approach in the design and implementation process. The monograph’s unique selling point is its objective analysis of the CPEC that will hopefully provide readers multiple perspectives on a highly contentious yet highly relevant policy issue.
