Rethinking global power
Political economist Dr Jue Wang on economic superpower China and its increasing influence.

In recent decades, China has developed into an economic superpower and an important player in world politics. What actually is China’s role in global economic governance? And is war in Europe an opportunity for China to increase its influence? Political economist Dr Jue Wang (Leiden University) outlines China’s economical rise on the international stage and will discuss some important benchmarks. Furthermore, she will elaborate on the origins and implications of China’s recent economic slowdown.

In cooperation with Utrecht Centre for Global Challenges/Contesting Governance and SIB Utrecht.
