China’s Regulatory State: A New Strategy for Globalization

Lecture: Center for Chinese Studies: Institute of East Asian Studies | January 18 | 4 p.m. |  Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)


Roselyn Hsueh, Assistant Professor, Political Science, Temple University

Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS), Center for Chinese Studies (CCS), Center for the Study of Law and Society, Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy


Today’s China is governed by a new economic model that marks a radical break from the Mao and Deng eras; it departs fundamentally from both the East Asian developmental state and its own Communist past. It has not, however, adopted a liberal economic model. China has retained elements of statist control even though it has liberalized foreign direct investment more than any other developing country in recent years. In China’s Regulatory State, Roselyn Hsueh demonstrates that even as the Chinese government introduces competition and devolves economic decisionmaking, the state has selectively imposed new regulations at the sectoral level, asserting and even tightening control over industry and market development, to achieve state goals. This mode of economic integration is contrasted with Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan’s manifestly different approaches to globalization.

Introduced by Stanley Lubman, Lecturer in Residence, UC Berkeley Law School

This talk is part of the IEAS book series "New Perspectives in Asia."
