Nov. 7: Talk with Prof. Shahar Hameiri (University of Queensland): "Fractured China"


Poster Talk Shahar Hameiri
Dear students and colleagues,

We kindly invite you on 7th November at 12 o´clock to a talk with Prof. Shahar Hameiri hosted by the ERC Infraglob project.
In this talk, Professor Shahar Hameiri will discuss his new co-authored book "Fractured China" (Cambridge University Press 2021). The book intervenes in the central debate in International Relations today: Is China’s rise a threat to the established international order?

Fractured China shows that it depends on what one means by “China”. For China is not the monolithic, unitary actor that many assume. Forty years of state transformation – the
fragmentation, decentralization and internationalization of party-state apparatuses – have profoundly changed how its foreign policy is made and implemented. Today, Chinese behavior
abroad is often not the product of a coherent grand strategy, but results from a sometimes-chaotic struggle for power and resources among contending politico-business interests, within a
surprisingly permissive Chinese-style regulatory state.

Shahar Hameiri is Professor of International Politics and Director of Research in the School of Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland. His work mainly examines security and development issues in Asia and the Pacific.

Please see the poster attached. No registration necessary. We are looking forward to seeing many of you!
