[CFP] Conference 2023 – China Working Group

13th Annual IIPPE Conference
The Chronicles of Multiple Crises Foretold
Call for Paper from the Political Economy of China’s Development Working Group
Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid, Spain 6 – 8 September 2023

With the looming global recession and accelerating poverty worldwide followed by the lingering impacts of the Covid pandemic and ecological degradations, the impacts of multiple crises unfolding in the capitalist world cannot be overlooked. China’s continuous growth and investment, albeit on a slower rate compared to previous years, forms a stark contrast to the capitalist powers. Is China’s plan for further modernisation and development for “common prosperity” able to protect itself from the deterioration of the capitalist world or will it heighten hostility from the West? 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 path to modernisation for other developing countries? 

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 path to modernisation and its challenge/submission to global capitalism
  • The political economy of China’s development, especially at times of looming global recession and accelerating poverty worldwide
  • Assessment of China’s Five-Year Plans, “two centennial goals” 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

We welcome panel proposals and single paper proposals. If you are proposing a panel, all papers need to be submitted individually via the link below and sent also by email to the working group coordinator with the titles of all papers. If you have any questions, please contact the China working group coordinator Sam-Kee Cheng (iippechina@gmail.com)
