GGR432H1: China in the Global Political Economy


Set against the backdrop of the rise of China, and following the perspective of geographic political economy, this seminar course examines the interactions between and mutual transformations of the Chinese economy and the global economy. We will focus on the evolving political and institutional foundations of China’s post-Mao, hybrid, hierarchical market-authoritarian system. Key sectors – telecoms, Internet, semiconductor, and automobile – will be examined to understand the nuances of China’s integration into the global production through state-directed uneven domestic development, and in turn the challenges raised by escalating international conflicts.
