Ye discusses the evolution of the American-Chinese narrative in politics


Min Yes, Associate Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed for a Politics article on China and how the narrative around it must change under President-elect Joe Biden.

In the article titled “It’s Time for the West to Revisit Its Chinese Narratives,” discusses the growing discussion about China and its global influence, the Trump administration’s attempts to curb its growth, and what the Biden administration to move forward. He also asked a number of academics – including you – what the United States needs to change in the way it talks about China.

Ye said the United States needs to revise “the debt trap policy narrative as a description of China’s outgoing investments / loans / projects.” Ye said this idea has been debunked and described as offensive and condescending to ruling elites in countries receiving Chinese investment.
