15th Biennial Conference of Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS) & NIAS-Nordic Institute of Asian Studies 14th Annual Nordic NIAS Council Conference
Register here by 31 May 2021
China’s power in economic, political, military and cultural terms is mounting. In our contemporary world, this rise in China’s influence has been phenomenal. However, the extent, of its actual impact on Asian countries and societies remain subject to scholarly and practitioner debate. To understand the significance of China’s ascendancy, some would argue, there is a need for concise and accurate analysis of its political, economic, and military engagement, as well as its proclaimed intentions. Tools to conduct such studies on the power and influence of China are, according to some scholars, still missing, and at best, insufficient.
During this two-day interdisciplinary conference, we are welcoming participants to share their findings on how the rise of China occurs, and how China’s rise is perceived, and how different states and societal actors have reacted to it in Asia. Evidence of sinicization, de-sinicization and re-sinicization will be identified and studied.
