Ian Holliday (Polititcs, University of Hong Kong) <>


Two key features of contemporary international politics are the rise of China and a heightened interest in global justice. However, the relationship between the two is rarely explored. What impact mightChina's growing great power status have on debates about global justice?How willthe cross-border activism of the past 20 years be affected by Beijing's looming presence in international society? The seminar will address thesequestions by examining Chinese theory and practice in the context ofinternational engagement with issues of global justice.
