Sophia Kalantzakos, Global Distinguished Professor in Environmental Studies and Public Policy at New York University-Abu Dhabi, is a Fung Global Fellow, 2019-20, at the Princeton Insitute for International and Regional Studies. She pursues interdisciplinary research focused on environmental governance, public policy and geopolitics, especially resource competition and climate change as threats that are reshaping power politics across the globe. Her most recent books include  China and the Geopolitics of Rare Earths and The E.U., U.S., and China Tackling Climate Change: Polices and Alliances for the Anthropocene. She heads eARThumanities, the Environmental Humanities Research Initiative at NYU-Abu Dhabi. During her time as a Fung Fellow, Kalantzakos will examine how China’s rise, its vision for the Belt and Road Initiative, shifting power relations, and the land and maritime “reunification” of Eurasia and Africa have begun to reshape global institutions, norms and governance structures provoking a renewed intellectual debate over global relations and exchanges.
