CFP: 6th Annual Nordic NIAS Council Conference

China's Economy and Society: Regional and global implications of a growing Chinese influence

Aalto University, 27-30 November 2012

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

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)
