Learning outcomes

The course deepens students' knowledge on China's economic foreign policy and its impact on global economic governance.


Over the past decade, China has emerged as a global economic force. The old adage about the USA sneezing and Europe catching a cold increasingly applies also to the relationship between China's economy and that of other economies, especially in Asia. China's global economic effects were first apparent in cross-border trade networks, attraction of inward direct investment and commodity purchases. Now these effects cover most aspects of global trade, investment and finance. It is therefore more pertinent than ever to pay close attention to the economic aspects of China's foreign policy and how it impacts on global economic governance structures, processes and modes of operation. This lecture course highlights both the domestic origins of China's foreign economic policies and their multifaceted impacts on global economic governance. Topics such as the political significance of China's state-directed cross-border investment, China's emergence as a major player in development assistance, as well as the internationalisation of the Chinese currency, will be tackled during the course.
