implications for the political economy

CERDI-IDREC, University of Auvergne, France

[Call for paper] [programme]  

The CERDI-IDREC organizes every two years an international conference on the Chinese economy. The conference attracts participants worldwide to address major economic issues and challenges that China and the world are currently facing.
The theme of this ninth conference is “China as a leader in the world economy: implications for the political economy”. The theme is significant and timely from both the research and policy perspectives.

Meanwhile China plays an ever growing part at the international level: at the centre of Asian integration, new special partner of Africa, lending and investing in Europe. China’s principal interest in other developing countries is access to natural resources, but China’s economic interests are wider, in particular diversify its trade partners. The participants will discuss theoretical, conceptual, methodological and applied issues related to the multiple aspects of China’s economy and its unique economic and political systems. All fields of specialization within economics will be considered.
Papers focusing on the proposed conference themes such as China's economic relations with Asian and other countries will be given preferences. The themes of this 9th Conference are:
  • Dynamics and growth
  • Distributional and equity issues
  • Trade
  • Monetary policy
  • Environment, natural resources and climate
  • Energy supply and security
  • Migration and relations between urban and rural areas
