Tabita Rosendal

Tabita Rosendal Ebbesen is a PhD student at the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies at Lund University, Sweden, where she also lectures on China’s modern history as well as contemporary Chinese politics and society.

Tabita’s research concerns China’s domestic and foreign politics, with a special focus on the Maritime Silk Road, part of the Belt and Road Initiative, and its implementation and success in different ports. Through a combined foreign policy analysis and governance approach, she analyzes the role and agency of Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in China and Sri Lanka in a bid to provide a nuanced account of Chinese strategic interests.
