AbstractThis paper explores dynamic processes of (re)negotiation of boundaries of and in China's Belt and Road Initiative. It identifies ambiguous temporal and spatial boundaries which create space for ongoing political and ideological contestation over the shape of the Belt and Road Initiative. The paper suggests that lack of clear geographical scope leaves open multiple futures for China's global relations under the initiative. Chinese imaginaries hint at a world of transnational networks of political economy but one still structured by nation states and intergovernmental regional institutions at a time when the intertwining of the political and the economic is a feature of shifting configurations of global political economy.
