Along the recent trend of globalization, perhaps one of the most significant focal points is the study on issues related to “Greater China,” a notion that originally entails potential economic integration of China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong (including Macau) and has lately been broadened to include Singapore, Southeast Asian Chinese communities, and overseas Chinese in other countries. Despite some political repercussions, Greater China has become an indisputable economic reality today. But economy is not the strongest element at play; rather, a more prevalent and consequential factor is culture and the underlying formal institutions and informal social customs.
This conference is designed to study the causes and consequences of globalization from cultural, institutional and socioeconomic perspectives, focusing more on topics related to Greater China.
All sessions will be held on the Chinese University of Hong Kong campus, December 12-13, 2008.
