520    This book focuses on the implementation of the China-
       Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a multi-billion-dollar 
       infrastructure development project intended to connect 
       Asia with Europe, the Middle East and Africa. By 
       introducing a new analytical approach to the study of 
       economic corridors, it gauges the anticipated economic and
       geopolitical impacts on the region and discusses whether 
       the CPEC will serve as a pioneer project for future 
       regional cooperation between and integration of sub-
       national regions such as Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 
       the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, and Gilgit-
       Baltistan. Further, it explores the interests, 
       expectations and policy approaches of both Chinese and 
       Pakistani local and central governments with regard to the
       CPEC's implementation. Given its scope, the book will 
       appeal to regional and spatial sciences scholars, as well 
       as social scientists interested in the regional impacts of
       economic corridors. It also offers valuable information 
       for policymakers in countries participating in the Belt-
       and-Road Initiative or other Chinese-supported development
       projects
