Oxford CHEW Conference 2016
20-21 May 2016
Submissions are now open for the third annual CHEW Conference. The CHEW Conference 2016 is based on the premise that while China has been experiencing rapid economic development in the last decades, this has inevitably brought about major imbalances and inequalities. China is facing major challenges to its health system, natural environment and human welfare. The conference aims to provide a forum for discussion on these pressing issues.
The 2016 CHEW Conference brings together graduate students, young researchers as well as established academics from across the social sciences and humanities as well as policy and civil society actors working on a range of contemporary issues relevant to China’s health, environment and welfare. Submissions are welcomed that cover themes including, but are not limited to:
Social and environmental justice
Environmental politics
Political ecology
Critical accounts of environmental disputes
Demographics, health and welfare
Civil society
Sustainable urbanisation
Ecological civilisation
Changing role of Chinese consumers
Rural-urban divide
China and the world (e.g. China-Africa, China-Russia, China-USA relationships)
Welfare in the Xi Jinping era
Both theoretical and empirical submissions are encouraged
Deadline for paper and panel submissions (300 words max):
1 March 2016
Organised by Oxford China’s Health, Environment and Welfare (CHEW)
Hosted and funded by
