The 27th Annual Meeting and International Symposium

At the University of Kansas, Lawrence Kansas on September 22nd and 23rd, 2014

 

 

 

Introduction

 

The Association of Chinese Political Studies (ACPS) will hold its 27th annual meeting and international symposium, September 22-23, 2014, in Lawrence, Kansas on the campus of University of Kansas (KU).  The conference is hosted by the ACPS and co-sponsored by the KU Political Science Department, Center for East Asian Studies and the KU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

 

 

Conference Theme

 

The Fifth Generation of China’s leadership has a significant influence on China’s domestic and international relations.  However, it is unclear what kind of changes in local, national and international policies may occur. Will the new generation shift China’s domestic policies towards sustainable development, environment or political liberation?  Will China’s foreign policies towards developed and developing nations as well as foreign investment, and international institutions change?  Some scholars and policy makers see more assertive central elite in the domestic and international policy realms delinked from past policies and relationships.  Yet others see continuity in China’s domestic and foreign policies given China’s present internal and global circumstances.

 

We invite papers that examine these topics and analyze China’s contemporary international and domestic policies.  In the domestic policy realm, we invite papers that include political, economic, social, educational, and cultural challenges.  In the international policy realm, we welcome papers that investigate China’s growing international presence and the policies that China has developed to respond and manage global challenges.

Exemplary conference papers will have the opportunity to be published in any edited volumes flowing from the conference as well as to be considered for publication in the ACPS’s flagship journal, the Journal of Chinese Political Science (JCPS).
