Trym Aleksander Eiterjord on China, Russia, and academic research:
"Beijing may gain more relevance in the bloc of non-liberal countries—in which the academic world includes Russia—and, consequently, worldwide."
In a recent article by Catarina Brites Soares for the Portuguese news outlet Expresso, Predoctoral Fellow Trym Aleksander Eiterjord talks about the current war in Ukraine. The article argues that, although Beijing's tacit support of Russia seems obvious to most observers, government officials deny the claims. Eiterjord highlights the potential benefits China could experience by keeping up this quiet endorsement.
