Call for Papers
"Chinese Exploration" and the World Economic Order

03-05 November 2012, Renmin University of China, Beijing, China

Many discussions have emerged in recent years regarding the rise of China and its impact on the structure of global governance and international relations. Because of the financial crisis and the consequent global recession, China's case is getting increasingly interesting to both scholars and policy makers. While much of the west is still struggling with the crisis showing no sign of quick recovery, China with its enormous state resources and strong capacity in steering its economy came out of the economic downturn basically unscathed.

Hanban and Renmin University of China are jointly organizing a workshop with the theme "Chinese Exploration" and the World Economic Order. This workshop is part of the third World Conference on Sinology. The aim is to provide opportunities for academic researchers to present results of their research work, encourage discussions on important issues concerning social and economic development in a fast changing world economy, and promote co-operations between Chinese and foreign research institutions. Participants of the workshop are encouraged to focus discussions on the social and economic development in China during the past three decades and how China has and will change the world economic order.

TOPICS: Submissions of papers on one of the following topics are particularly welcome:
(1) China's economic success and its ideological implications (e.g., Confucianism and/or alternative economic systems)
(2) Growing China and its impact on the structure of global governance
(3) Sustainability of the emerging market economies and international relations
(4) China's contributions to the theory of economic development and transition

PUBLICATION: All papers accepted for the conference are eligible for a special issue of the SSCI journal Emerging Market Finance and Trade (EMFT). Papers will be reviewed for the EMFT upon receipt using its normal criteria. Note that the acceptance of a paper to the conference is not a guarantee of publication by the EMFT.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Complete papers should be sent to: ructhsce@gmail.com by September 1, 2012. Feel free to address any enquiries to this address as well.

PARTICIPATION: There is no registration fee for the conference. Presenting authors (one for each paper) will be provided three nights of accommodation at the Renmin University of China. Announcement of accepted papers will be made Sep. 10, 2012.
