CSGR China Conference

This week the Hallsworth Conference on China and the Changing Global Order was held in Manchester on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th March. Organized by Catherine Jones, André Broome, Matthias Kranke, and Pablo Rodríguez-Merino from PAIS in collaboration with Shogo Suzuki from the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester, the conference brought together 60 delegates from over 15 countries around the world to discuss new research papers from a range of disciplinary sub-fields across International Relations and International Political Economy. The conference discussions focused on critical questions such as how China’s rise is changing the global order, whether China’s visions for global order represent a viable alternative mode of global governance, and how more Sino-centric global governance institutions will shape international power relations.

Plenary speakers at the conference included: Professor Kerry Brown, King's College London; Dr Lai-Ha Chan, University of Technology Sydney and Princeton University; Professor Rosemary Foot, University of Oxford; Dr Yang Jiang, Danish Institute for International Studies; Professor Katherine Morton, University of Sheffield; Professor Edward Newman, University of Leeds; Professor John Ravenhill, Balsillie School of International Affairs; and Professor Yongjin Zhang, University of Bristol.

A selection of research papers that were presented at the conference will be published online later this year in the Hallsworth China Forum, a special collection within the CSGR Working Paper Series.
