COSB35: Global China
This course provides a comprehensive exploration of Chinese globalisation from a variety of perspectives. It delves into the uneven and diverse nature of China’s global push, examining a range of topics, such as labour regimes, environmental issues, logistics/supply chains, digital globalisation, informal/illicit industries, foreign policy, and human rights. Various active actors beyond the state and the Communist Party are also analysed, including state and private businesses, civil society and the media, as well as various individuals in the diaspora. Chinese processes of globalisation are analysed in historical context and with regard to contemporary significance. Emphasis is placed on understanding the ways in which Chinese globalisation is both rooted in Chinese domestic processes and localised in host country contexts. At the same time, the course zooms in on how Chinese domestic developments are subject to shifting patterns of globalisation.
