Wang Xinsong is an associate professor at the Beijing Normal University School of Social Development and Public Policy. His recent research focuses on the political risks of China’s overseas investments and their impact on the governance of developing countries.

Since its unveiling in 2013, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has developed into a sweeping global project with profound implications for the international financial system, China’s own growth model, and governance in China and in countries along the Belt. The cornerstone of President Xi Jinping’s effort to reposition China as a global economic leader, the BRI has the potential to deepen international integration and alter financial standards and good governance practices.

Despite China’s promises of communal contributions and shared benefits, many in the West remain uncertain whether the BRI will reform or merely maintain preexisting norms and values. To what extent will the new China-backed financial institutions, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and New Development Bank, compete with the traditional Bretton-Woods organizations? And how will the internationalization of China’s economy shape the nation’s domestic financial systems? Finally, how can China promote transparency and accountability within and beyond its borders as the BRI develops?

Reconciling Markets and Politics in a Globalized World:

Views from China and the West

The world’s three largest economies—the European Union, the United States, and China—are engaged in an increasingly contentious and high-stakes debate over whether to grant market economy status to China at the end of this year. China maintains that being granted this status was a guaranteed term of its entry into the World Trade Organization. Yet, last week, the European Parliament passed a non-binding resolution against granting China market economy status, a move that many observers see as a precursor to a binding vote later this year. This ongoing policy debate has enormous economic, commercial, and political implications for key strategic capitals, as well as for broader diplomatic relations between China and its leading trade partners.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion about the significance of these recent developments and what they mean for China’s trade ties and broader diplomatic relations with Europe, as well as with other major economies like the United States.

Arnaud Viviant, Cui Zhiyuan, « La pensée maoïste et les intellectuels, regards croisés entre la France et la Chine », 31 mars 2016

Le Centre Franco-Chinois en sciences sociales de l’université Tsinghua a le plaisir de vous inviter à une conférence-débat en présence d’Arnaud Viviant et de Cui Zhiyuan.

YMBArnaud Viviant

Journaliste, écrivain et critique littéraire français, spécialiste de la politique française et des milieux intellectuels en France.

YMBCui Zhiyuan

Professeur en administration et politique publique à l’université Tsinghua, représentant éminent de la Nouvelle gauche chinoise et ancien conseiller de Huang Qifan (maire de Chongqing)

La pensée maoïste et les intellectuels,
regards croisés entre la France et la Chine

A l’occasion de la venue à Pékin d’Arnaud Viviant, le Centre Franco-chinois en sciences sociales de l’Université Tsinghua (CFC) organise un débat questionnant l’influence du maoïsme sur les intellectuels français des années 1960 et 1970 et les intellectuels chinois des années 2000. Comment la pensée maoïste a-t-elle été ou est toujours mobilisée par les intellectuels dans la construction de leur pensée et dans l’élaboration d’approches alternatives tant dans les domaines littéraires et artistiques que dans le champ socio-économique ? Tandis qu’Arnaud Viviant reviendra sur le parcours des maoïstes français pour qui le maoïsme prit d’abord la forme d’un « anticommunisme de gauche » en rupture avec l’Union soviétique, puis une source d’inspiration littéraire et artistique ; Cui Zhiyuan expliquera comment la pensée de Mao l’a inspiré dans la conception de réformes socio-économiques inédites pour la Chine contemporaine.

Jeudi 31 mars 2016, de 13h30 à 16h30
Université Tsinghua, Xin Zhai Building, salle 353

Le débat sera animé par Chloé Froissart,
Directrice du Centre franco-chinois de l’université Tsinghua

Table ronde : « La perception de la Chine dans la Françafrique » – Centre Tsinghua Carnegie – 03 avril 2013

In recent years, China has supplanted the United States as Africa’s largest trading partner and claims significant investments in francophone Africa. As China’s footprint on the continent grows along with its domestic energy requirements, its quest for natural resources brings it into contact with varying African governments, companies, and local populations. This presence has naturally resulted in diverse public perception of China in francophone Africa, and holds broader implications for Beijing’s relations with France and on the African continent. The pending roundtable discussion will serve to highlight that public perception and use it as a lens to examine evolving Sino-French relations and China’s presence in Africa more broadly.

The Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy and Tsinghua Sino-French Center cordially invites you to attend a roundtable discussion with Professor Jean-Pierre Dozon. The event, “Perception of China in Francophone Africa”, will take place on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. Carnegie-Tsinghua’s Zhang Chuanjie will moderate the roundtable. It will be open to public and dinner reception will be held at 18:00 p.m. after the discussion.

Professor Jean-Pierre Dozon is a resident historian and anthropologist of Franco-African relations at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences based in Paris, France. Dozon’s academic foci include the development of Sino-African diplomatic relations and the links between religious movements and state power in Africa.

The Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy hopes you will be able to join us at this event. The Carnegie-Tsinghua Center’s contact information and address are attached. If you have any questions, please contact: Liang Xiao 15210563916 Email:
