New Danish article by Tabita Rosendal in Kinabladet

In this Danish article, Tabita Rosendal provides an overview of China's use of Buddhist diplomacy in Sri Lanka, arguing that the CCP is utilizing Buddhist strategic narratives in order to pave the way for the Belt and Road Initiative's (BRI) smooth implementation. She summarizes the BRI's progress in Sri Lanka, China's use of Buddhist diplomacy, as well as China's Buddhist strategic narratives, before providing insights into future obstacles to China's Buddhist strategy in Sri Lanka and elsewhere.
