CHERN’s WG3 (Financial investments, real estate and services) will be holding a joint workshop with WG1 (Strategic sectors and infrastructure development) 7-9 September 2021. We intend to organise a number of WG3 panels held in parallel with WG1 sessions and hope to also hold some keynote/plenary events.
Spaces are limited, so we are asking anyone interested in presenting as part of the WG3 panels (whether in person or online) to submit a short abstract. This can be on any topic related to the financial aspects of China in Europe (EU member states and beyond). Topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Banking and other financial institutions and services
- Official finance
- Portfolio and real estate investment
- RMB internationalisation
- Energy finance and ESG
- Financial governance at national, European and global levels
- Theorising Chinese finance/capital in Europe
- Europe in comparative perspective
This will be a hybrid event, with participation both in-person and online (Covid restrictions permitting). The venue will be the Irish College in Leuven, a self-contained facility providing accommodation and meeting rooms, plus a restaurant and bar, meaning we should be able to maintain a Covid bubble if necessary. For those attending in person, accommodation is available on site and cost of travel, subsistence and accommodation for 7/8 September will be covered (you will receive full details if your abstract is accepted).
Deadline for abstracts is 8 August. You will be notified if your abstract has been accepted by 12 August.
The event will be made available to non-participants to view online. A full programme will follow once finalised.
