Call for Papers for the 12th Australian International Political Economy Network (AIPEN) workshop organised by the School of Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland
The COVID-19 pandemic has not so much changed but catalysed trends in the global political economy following the global financial crisis and the rise of China as an important centre for capitalist accumulation. Key drivers within geopolitical economy are increasingly shaping the nature of global production, investment, trade and development financing. Considerations here could include securing supply chains, cyber-security and the sharing of sensitive technologies, great power competition, and managing state capitalism, which have all come to the fore for policymakers and firms, even as transnational flows remain a central feature of the global political economy. What do these dynamics mean for the future of capitalism? What are the implications for China’s own development trajectory, and its growing global economic footprint?
The 12th AIPEN Workshop welcomes submissions from all areas of political economy, broadly conceived. Submissions relating to the Workshop’s theme are especially encouraged.
