CfP (2020 call for papers)
The 14th Annual China goes GlobalTM conference will be held at will be held at beautiful Vancouver, Simon Fraser University, Beedie School of Business, in Vancouver, Canada.
We encourage paper writers, panel presenters, book authors, professionals, representative of firms and PhD students studying China’s globalization to submit their work on our website (http://www.chinagoesglobal.org/conference/paper-submission).
The rise of China is nothing less than spectacular, lifting millions of people out of poverty, modernizing the economy, and building a world class infrastructure. At the same time, China has built a network of economic and political links via the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and has developed plans to become a world leader in key technological areas, dubbed the Made in China 2025. At the same time, the emergence of China as an economic power has created uncertainties regarding global governance while its state-led development model has challenged orthodox thinking regarding the role of the state.
We seek to understand the globalization of China’s political economy through research from a multi-disciplinary (business, economics, politics, etc.), multi-method (qualitative/quantitative) and multi-level analyses (people, firms, industries, regions, global). Best papers from past conferences have been published as Special Issues and Edited Books in the past.
