China‘s Political and Economic Transformation – Implications for Policies at Home and Abroad
China’s unprecedented transformation in the context of globalization, marketization, and urbanization has led to an urgent demand for a more nuanced and in-depth study and understanding of China’s political evolution.
What are the critical domestic changes and challenges in Chinese politics today?
How does the Chinese leadership seek to respond to them and what are the implications of its institutional and strategic choices for the development of Chinese regional and global foreign and security policies?
Set against the backdrop of China’s political (and economic) transformation processes and its emergence as a major power, the envisioned lecture series will examine the dynamics of Chinese domestic politics and the main issues on the agenda of China’s political development. Furthermore, the lectures will examine the impact of China’s political transformation on politics and security in and beyond Asia.
