Call For Papers - Special Issue on Financial Openness of China and the Global Economy


Economic and Political Studies (EPS), an ESCI and Scopus listed journal hosted by Renmin University of China and published by Taylor & Francis Group, is calling for papers for a special issue on “Financial Openness of China and the Global Economy”.

As China's economy has grown in size and it has become more integrated with the rest of the global economy via foreign trade, also China's importance for global capital markets has grown. However, China's steps to liberalize its capital flows have been much more cautious than its trade liberalization. Nevertheless, the past few years have seen more concerted efforts to foster integration of Chinese capital markets into global markets as well as to encourage international use of the Chinese currency, the renminbi. While there have been some setbacks on the way, the general trend towards more liberal regime is clear. Therefore, Economic and Political Studies now invites contributions to a new special issue on “Financial Openness of China and the Global Economy”. Some of the papers can be presented in the RMB Forum in July 2019 at Renmin University of China. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

•Capital account liberalization in China
•Can other countries be used as examples for China in capital account liberalization?
•How ready are China's financial markets for capital flow liberalization?
•Use of the renminbi in international trade - trends and causes
•Use of the renminbi as an investment currency
•What explains the use of different currencies in global markets?

Some of the papers will also be invited for a workshop on the same theme to be held in Renmin University in July 2019.
