On Monday, March 6, from 10:30-11:30 on Zoom, Dr Audrye Wong will present a talk entitled “Subversion and Seduction: China’s Economic Statecraft.” See the attached flyer for more details.
Dr Audrye Wong is Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Southern California. Her research examines how China uses non-military means, including economic and informational tools, to gain geopolitical influence.
In this talk, Dr Wong asks, when and how do economic capabilities translate into actual geopolitical influence? Drawing on evidence from field interviews, case studies, and a survey experiment, she shows that although economic statecraft has the potential to change the nature of great power competition and allow rising powers such as China to make strategic gains without turning to military conflict, it has also incited backlash, pointing to a bumpy road ahead for China’s efforts to expand global influence.
Please spread the world! We hope you, your colleagues and/or students can attend!
