[CFP] Conference 2019 – Political Economy of China’s Development Working Group
Call for Paper 10th Annual IIPPE Conference
Political Economy of China’s Development Working Group
Lille (France) 3-5 July 2019
This year’s IIPPE Annual Political Economy Conference will be a joint conference with the French Association for Political Economy/ L’Association Française d’Économie Politique (AFEP), with the participation of the Association for the Development of Keynesian Studies (ADEK), the Association for Heterodox Economics (AHE) and the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE).
In light of the uneven and sluggish economic performance around the world since the Global Financial Crisis, China manages to continue economic growth and improve general living standards. The government pledges to eliminate absolute poverty by 2020, i.e. to lift around 30 million people out of absolute poverty in 3 years, and to upgrade China’s manufacturing base into high-tech industries by 2025. US trade war even pushed some listed private companies to sell their controlling shares to the state. All this run counter to the trend of austerity and neoliberal practice. The Political Economy of China’s Development Working Group invites you to submit proposals for individual papers or themed panels related to our lines of inquiry of China’s transformation and its impact on world development in relation to neoliberalism, capitalism and imperialism. We welcome contributions on the following themes:
- China’s 40 years of market reform
- China’s response to Global Financial Crisis
- Assessment of China’s Five-Year Plans
- China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its implications
- China-US relations with particular focus on the US policy of China
- China’s industrial policy and its future
- The rise of China and its impact to contemporary imperialism
- Controversies over state responses to separatist nationalism and religious tendencies in the Western region
- “Marxisms” in China – contention between official ideology and self-proclaimed Marxisms of young radicals
We welcome panel proposals and single paper proposals. If you are proposing a panel, all papers need to be submitted individually via the electronic form. In addition, please send an email indicating what papers (with their authors) you would like to be grouped into a panel (give title). This should go to Ourania Dimakou (email@example.com) on the Conference Committee, and please copy in the China working group coordinators, Sam-Kee Cheng (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Niels Hahn (email@example.com).
