Go east? The political economy of China and the future of South-North relations
We will explore the following questions:
- What is the driver for China`s capital export?
- Is China an “alternative globalizer”, creating a new context of development, or does it repeat old patterns of colonial exploitation?
- China is the center of manufacturing exports in the global economy. Is this growth model sustainable?
- What are spatial, social and economic limits to capitalist accumulation posed by a region as big as China?
Officials, scholars, students and members of NGOs interested in global political economy and development are cordially invited to attend. The workshop will be held in English. For organizational reasons please register: firstname.lastname@example.org
