Abstract

The announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013 has expanded China's economic and political footprint globally. The main question, to which a burgeoning body of literature has devoted its attention, is whether China and, more generally, non Western, rising powers are undermining and challenging the US-led, Liberal International Order. Situated within these debates, and drawing on a discourse analysis of official statements from politicans, parliamentary debates and newspaper articles, this chapter assesses how Chinese narratives on key issues pertaining to the LIO are entering the Italian political discourse and whether political elites take on board such narratives.
