Conference Theme:

We invite papers which investigate any aspect of "Greater China" in the midst of Globalization. Papers can address the major issues and challenges (including political, economic, social, environmental, legal, foreign policy, regional security and peace, regional and global governance) facing China, HK, Macau, and Taiwan, particularly with the rise of China in the region, and examine the role of China as a responsible "regional citizen" and "global citizen" with its rising power in shaping a Greater China and the rest of the world, the role of HK and Taiwan in the political economy of reform and development in China, and the role of a greater China in competing with one another and competing possibly as an economic community with the other groups in the era of globalization. Well researched conference papers will have the opportunity: (1) to be published in Journal of Chinese Political Science (JCPS); (2) and/or to be published in edited books flowing from the conference.


All scholars and researchers who are working in the related fields are invited to submit proposals for consideration. Please send proposals no later than 31 December 2007. Paper proposals should include paper title, names of authors, institutional affiliation, title/position, mailing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, and an abstract of 250-300 words – everything in one page. Paper proposals should be emailed to both Dr. Simon Shen at and Dr. Sujian Guo at To facilitate our selection process, we hope you could put " 2008 HKIAPS conference paper proposal" in the subject line of your emails.
