Call for Papers on "Spatial Political Economy of Regional Development"
The world is experiencing widespread changes unseen in a century. Meanwhile, China’s economic development is entering a new stage, but our society is still facing significant challenges triggered by imbalanced and insufficient development. The spatial patterns of China’s economic development are undergoing profound adjustments. Adhering to coordinated regional development strategy, improving development systems, and building a high-quality land-space layout have proven to be effective ways to promote coordinated regional development. However, there are various obstacles to further progress. In-depth research that combines spatial economics and political economy is therefore urgently needed to reach a comprehensive understanding of these issues.
In order to promote the development of spatial political economy and provide research support for the development of China’s regional economy, School of Economics in Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE), Shanghai Institute for National Economy (SJTU), and Young Economist Society (YES) are co-organizing a workshop to identify the important frontier issues in China’s regional development and seek serious research from academia. The workshop is strongly supported by theChina& World Economy (SSCI Journal). The outstanding papers in the workshop will be published in the journal after anonymous reviews.
The workshop calls for papers on the following topics:
1.Urban agglomeration construction and cross-regional coordination mechanism
2.Integrated mechanism, optimized factor allocation efficiency, and metropolitan area construction
3.Institutions, policies, and their impact on market integration
4.Coordinated urban and rural development and equalization of public services
5.Impact evaluation of place-based policies
6.Urbanization based on county towns and optimal urban system
7.Impact of central-local relations on regional development
8.Population, land policy, and rural revitalization
9.Other issues related to the spatial political economy of regional development
Note that the papers submitted to the workshop do not need to cover all the above topics. Cutting through from a certain perspective for in-depth analysis is strongly encouraged.
Submitted papers must be original and unpublished works by the author(s), in Chinese or English. For English papers, please refer to the submission style of theChina& World Economy. For Chinese papers, please refer to the submission style of theJingji Yanjiu (Economic Research Journal).
Authors should submit the preliminary draft or completed draft of their papers to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 7, 2021 and indicate "submission to regional conference" in the letterhead. The conference committee will notify the authors of selected papers by May 21, 2021. The workshop will be held at the Central University of Finance and Economics on June 5, 2021. Outstanding papers selected at this workshop should be revised based on the reviewers’ comments, and the revised English version must be submitted toChina& World Economy before July 5, 2021. Then, the submitted papers will enter the anonymous review process.
The workshop organizer will provide accommodation for participants, while the travel expenses are borne by participants themselves.
