The conference and PhD Course are co-organized by <strong>NIAS</strong> and the Center for Markets in Transition (<strong>CEMAT</strong>) and the Department of Management and International Business at Aalto University School of Economics (<strong>Aalto ECON</strong>).

Conference 27-28 November and PhD Course 29-30 November

The conference will mainly focus on the increasingly prominent Chinese economy that has a growing impact both on the regional and global levels. What drives China’s economic and political expansion, and under what circumstances can this growth be assumed to continue? What kind of implications does the ‘rising China’ have in the economic, societal, and political scene in other Asian countries, and elsewhere? What is the relationship between politics and business in the Chinese hybrid economy? Will the strategic sectors of the economy continue to be dominated by large state-owned enterprises under Party control?

The following keynote speakers will inspire our proceedings

  • Chung-in Moon, Professor, Dept. Political Science, Yonsei University
  • Claes Alvstam, Professor, International Economic Geography, Univ. of Gothenburg (TBC)
  • Linda Jakobson, Director, East Asia Program, Lowy Institute for International Policy (TBC)
Hence, the conference will discuss the 'rising China' and its influence on the economies, societies, and politics of wider Asia, as well as other parts of the world.
