Globalisation at the Crossroads: China and International Economic Law

Back to search results
China’s integration into the world economy has been one of the most remarkable phenomena in the process of globalisation. China is now among the most influential players in utilising and shaping the international economic law (IEL) order. In face of the backlash against globalisation, it is important to understand China’s domestic policy and regulatory responses and global economic activities, and the implications for other nations. Therefore, the project seeks to attract original and quality research in the key IEL areas – i.e. trade, investment, and finance – to explore how China may contribute to institutional development, rule-making, dispute resolution, and international collaboration.
