[CFP] Conference 2022 – China Working Group
12th Annual IIPPE Conference
Socio-Ecological Crisis and the Political Economy of Sustainability
Call for Paper from the Political Economy of China’s Development Working Group
Bologna, Italy 7 – 9 September 2022
China’s continuous economic growth and the preservation of lives and health of the population during the pandemic contrast sharply with the falling living standards and decline in life expectancy in the Global North. Is China’s plan for industrial upgrading and common prosperity a challenge to neoliberal capitalism? What are the impacts of China’s continuous development on world capitalism and on the shape of the international order? What lessons can be drawn from China’s zero-Covid strategy in combating present and future socio-ecological crises?
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 into China’s impact on world development in relation to capitalism and imperialism. We welcome contributions on the following themes:
- China’s Covid strategy and its challenge to Western consensus and values
- The political economy of China’s development and global socio-ecological crisis
- Assessment of China’s Five-Year Plans and plan for Common Prosperity
- China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its implications
- China’s industrial policy and its future
- The rise of China and its impact on contemporary neo-imperialism
- The impact and possible outcomes of the US-China rivalry and/or Russia-China relations
- Marxism in China and its response to neoliberalism and/or Western ideology
