The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the SAIS Foreign Policy Institute (FPI) at Johns Hopkins University are organizing a roundtable discussion on Domestic Political Economy and China’s 'Going Out' Strategy.

This event is a policy and research roundtable discussion with senior officials and academics, focusing on the connection between China’s domestic political economy drivers of its new activism in foreign financial policy. The experts will explore the domestic sources of the “going out” strategy, the role of China’s domestic institutions in shaping its economic, and the impact of its financial engagement abroad on domestic reform.

Each participant is requested to submit a two-page document ahead of the event with their research in this area. If you have any additional questions on the program please contact Alisha Clancy, Program Manager Global Economy, CIGI: [email protected].
