This research project is an endeavor to evaluate China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) critically from legal and politico-economic perspectives. CPEC encounters numerous legal and politico-economic issues at the domestic, regional and international levels. At the national level, CPEC has raised politico-economic issues between provincialism and federalism. Moreover, some legal aspects of the Constitution and national law of Pakistan are in conflict with the corresponding domains of the International Law. Therefore, the focal point of the current work is to delve into various basic legal aspects of CPEC. Nevertheless, the study applies mixed method approach wherein questionnaires and interviews will be distributed and conducted from the legal, political and economic experts, respectively. Quantitative data, collected through questionnaires, will be analyzed through Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) whereas qualitative data, received through open ended interviews, will be textually analyzed. The significance of the study lies in the fact that it will not only explore the issues under study, but also suggest recommendations for appropriately addressing and/or eradicating the same issues so that people’s apprehensions and grievances are finished at the provincial and national levels, and legal and politico-economic hurdles are eliminated for timely completion of CPEC as a very large and direly needed plan.
