The Emerging Political Economy of the 21st Century: The New Rise of China, Neoliberalism, and Neocolonialism

The Emerging Political Economy of the 21st Century: The New Rise of China, Neoliberalism and Neocolonialism
Convener: Allen Chun
From the aftermath of the Cold War era to the 21st century, in an era of global capitalism and neoliberal policy, China’s rapid rise has led to a restructuring of global political economy and the realignment of regional security in East and Southeast Asia. Behind this economic and political restructuring, there lies a complicated history of colonial struggles as well as complex identity conflicts. This development has produced an unequal power structure and engendered hidden injuries of neo-colonialism. This contemporary political and economic situation must be studied from a perspective that views cultural identity, market economy, relations of production, regional security and theoretical discourse as part of an interrelated system.
