“Responsible China” the 11th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS)

Extended Deadline: 31th Mar 2013
Turku, Finland, 11th – 14th Jun 2013


As China develops rapidly it faces a number of challenges with/in its natural environment, social structure, governance system and ethnic policies just to name a few of the more salient fields. How can China’s policy makers, ordinary citizens, companies and popular organizations respond to their changing situations? Ultimately, would a richer and more developed China also require more responsible government towards its citizens, environment and region? At the same time, the world is facing a more powerful and self-confident China. With its might growing also its responsibilities to the rest of the world grow. How should and could the global community support China’s development into a responsible superpower, or is it even possible?

The 11th NACS conference organizers particularly welcome papers or panel proposals touching the theme of responsibility, but as a comprehensive conference bringing together China researchers in the Nordic area and beyond, also proposals on other China-related fields and topics such as, but not limited to, politics, economy, society, history, gender studies, cultural studies and humanities are welcome. The NACS conference organizers welcome individual paper and panel proposals also from non-members. NACS will support Nordic MA and PhD students’ travel costs to the conference.
