With a notable focus on China, Economic and Political Studies aims to disseminate significant theoretical, analytical, and empirical research on political-economic phenomena in, or relevant to, China that have wider implications for economic and political studies. EPS encourages solid research findings that may pose challenges to and even revise the existing theories and methodologies. EPS welcomes original researches that analyse the role of economic and political institutions and consider China’s interaction with the world.
