7th China Goes Global Conference (CGG 2013)

September 25-27, 2013, Jacobs University Bremen, Germany

Globalization is increasingly being shaped by the non-Western world, most notably China. It is a staggering fact that China’s development during the past three decades has outpaced the growth rates of England during the industrial revolution. The country is in the process of becoming the largest economy of the planet and a powerful political, financial and even cultural actor on a global stage.

In this context, we announce the seventh international conference examining China’s globalization. We seek multi-disciplinary approaches, which can include analyses of China’s businesses, economic, social, legal environment, political systems, and ethical and social structures.
