• “Mandarins Playing Capitalist Games: How China is Reshaping Global Governance.” Examines how effectively Chinese government agencies and businesses are learning to participate in global economic regimes and what consequences their involvement has on themselves, China as a whole, other countries, and global governance more generally. Areas of focus include regimes for trade remedies, technical standards, cross-border investment, credit ratings, and commodities markets.
• “China Inc.oherent.” China’s economic policy process appears simultaneous to be both highly organized and frustratingly incoherent. This project analyzes the implications of this dynamic for the overall trajectory of economic policy and variation across sectors.
• “Corporate Philanthropy in China.” Carried out with Angela Bies (IU School of Philanthropy), the project examines the emergence of corporate philanthropy in China, with a focus on the sources of its problems and potential to more effectively serve the public good. Components include development of a unique database of corporate foundations, surveys of companies, and case studies.
