Keynote speakers: Charles Sampford and ZHU Guanglei

Professor Charles Sampford studied philosophy and law at Melbourne, combining them in his 1986 Oxford DPhil. In 1991, Griffith University approached him to be their Foundation Dean of Law and he established the curriculum and research culture, reaching number 43 on one global ranking and number 38 on another. He bid for and led the only Australian Research Centre (ARC) and only ARC network in law or governance. He is currently Director of the Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law, a multi-university strategic research centre at Griffith, established on the initiative of the United Nations University. Visiting appointments have included a Senior Fellowship at St John’s College Oxford and Senior Fulbright Award to Harvard. In June 2008, his work on ethics and integrity systems was recognized by the ARC as one of the 20 researchers across all disciplines who had had the greatest impact. He convened the World Ethics Forum in Oxford in 2006 and the first three Integrity 20 summits. He has written over 150 articles and chapters and has completed 32 books and edited collections with OUP and other leading international publishers. He is currently completing Building the Rule of Law in International Affairs for OUP. Charles is also a barrister and company director and has been consulted on governance issues by numerous governments, parliamentary committees, international agencies and NGOs. He has argued that ‘universal values are at the asymptote of infinite dialogue but that all such dialogue promotes either convergence or an awareness of difference‘. He put this into practice in speeches in New York, Tokyo, Beijing, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.

Topic: Building the international rule of law for governance of global justice

Abstract: We are used to debating the governance values that should guide peoples and polities within sovereign states – liberty, equality, fraternity, citizenship, democracy, human rights, the rule of law and, more generally, ‘justice’. However, as the world ‘globalizes’, a key question is what values should guide the emerging global order. Should they be Western versions of those values writ large? Or the result of dialogues between long-standing cultures in which the dialogue promotes convergence of values and, in some cases, the recognition of difference? Some governance values are hard to apply at the global level (e.g. democracy and citizenship). Some are the subject of radically different conceptions (especially ‘justice’). Some make the transition reasonably easily. At the 2005 United Nations World Summit, member states unanimously recognized the need for ‘universal adherence to and implementation of the rule of law at both the national and international levels’ and ‘reaffirmed their commitment to “an international order based on the rule of law and international law”’ (often shortened to ‘a rules-based international order’).
We then consider the arguments for adhering to the international rule of law – with strong pragmatic arguments for superpowers as well middle-ranking powers. It will emphasize that the rule of law is a value that all states must apply to themselves as readily as they criticize others.
But, if the rule of law is to come to international affairs, it will require more than lip service. What would need to change and how would that change come about? One way of answering the first question is to examine those factors which give strength to the domestic rule of law and ask whether similar factors are present or could develop. The paper will argue that the domestic rule of law is strong where two kinds of supports are present. First, the rule of law forms an important part of the ethics of key groups of actors or potential actors in the domestic polity, including a range of professionals and office bearers – soldiers, judges, civil servants, lawyers and, to an extent, police, corporate executives and elected officials. The relevant ethical precepts are built into their everyday practice. Second, there are a significant number of institutions which support the rule of law courts, parliaments, integrity agencies (such as ombudsmen, auditors-general, ICACs, etc.) and generally oppose its breach (the legal profession, civil society and the media). The two kinds of support are mutually reinforcing and together provide good reasons for general (if not universal) adherence to the rule of law.
The particular groups and institutions may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. At the international level, they are, and are likely to remain, different. They are collectively much weaker than in effective liberal democracies. But they are stronger than in weak democracies and are arguably growing stronger.
The final part of the paper will consider how the rule of law needs to be supplemented by other governance values if we are to seek ‘global justice’.

Topic: Differentiation and inclusion: the current situation and future trend of structural change of social stratifications in China

Abstract: 1. Differentiation: The main line of structural changes of Chinese social classes in the past 40 years.
The number of agricultural workers continues to decrease, and will continue to decrease in the process of industrial restructuring.
The number of workers continues to increase. ‘Outward-going migrant workers’ have become the basic components of the working class, while ‘Migrant workers on the land’ are the marginal and transitional components of the working class.
The number of private entrepreneurs and individual labourers continues to increase, and the social members who are employed ‘outside the system’ are already the majority.
The ‘generalization’ of the term ‘intellectuals’ is decreasing, while ‘intellectuals’ are divided as a class, and ‘professional and technical people’ have become a relatively independent social class.
2. Inclusion: Important direction of promoting the structural change of Chinese social classes
The structural change of Chinese social classes is a historical process of ‘from identity to contract’. This is a positive and progressive social movement, an important part of reform and opening up, a fundamental for China's long-term development, as well as the basic social foundation for the development of democracy and the rule of law.
Faced with these changes, especially when confronted with the negative elements arising from these changes, people can choose conflicts or choose to be tolerant when dealing with class relationships. In today’s China, the best subjective choice is toleration, and it is also ‘tolerable’ between each class that is participating in this process objectively.
The most fundamental basis for the choice of inclusion is that most of these negative problems are problems that need to be resolved in deepening reforms and continuous development. For example, China has three ‘Gini coefficients’ of national, rural and urban, exhibiting a kind of gourd-shaped income distribution difference. Therefore, the situation is very complicated and it can only be solved in the process of gradually dissolving the ‘dual society’. As another example, there have been relatively more debates on ‘class solidification’ in academic circles in recent years. The problem is actually not more serious than in other countries. Social mobility is still in active progress. There is indeed a ‘solidification’ phenomenon, but it cannot be said that the society has ‘solidified’.
When dealing with class relationships, if you choose to be inclusive, you are required to:
politically adhere to the thought of ‘not queuing, not wearing a hat, not rushing, not picking up things’, as well as insisting on dealing with social contradictions in the course of democracy and the rule of law;
avoid dealing with problems with the thought of ‘class struggle as the core’, and also avoid using ‘fairness’ and ‘equality’ as the focus of thinking and dealing with problems;
make the three major forces that promote the structural changes of social stratum, i.e. industrial restructuring, the socialist market economy system construction and urbanization, continue to function and form a synergy;
build a service-oriented government in the process of transforming government functions.

Topic: Governing education systems for excellence with social justice

Abstract: How education systems are governed matters in every society. They are both the one institution all members of a society must pass through, and are central in shaping futures. How in any one society do its members come to participate in debates about how education should be governed, and how and where are decisions made around the distribution of opportunities, as well as how inequalities are mediated? How much say should global actors have in relation to any one country’s education system when education is a national concern? What is the best governance model to ensure economic development, on the one hand, and social justice, on the other? Are these compatible objectives or are they in tension with each other? Some countries have increasingly turned to the market as supposedly a neutral arbiter of interests, and as a source of innovation via competition. Other countries have taken the view that the state needs to oversee education to ensure planning and deliver on longer-term social and developmental objectives. In this intervention, I consider the challenges and risks of ‘too much’ market and the negative effects of excessive competition for education systems, when quality, equity and other social justice questions are placed more centrally in the frame.

Topic: Nurturing further opening up and development, with inclusive culture

Abstract: Among the world's four major sources of civilizations, only the Chinese civilization has persisted uninterrupted and in an orderly fashion. The fundamental reason is the inclusive nature of traditional Chinese culture. While adhering to its traditional characteristics, the inclusive culture, with its open mind, continuously absorbs and draws on the nourishment of foreign cultures, is tolerant and inclusive like the sea accepting hundreds of rivers, forming a profound culture, with particular emphasis on ‘gentlemen being at the same time harmonious and different’. Whether it is the need to analyse the history of the shift of the Chinese economy from high-speed growth to high-quality development, or to deal with the emergence of counter-globalization and the impact of a global trade war on the evolution of the political economic landscape, further advocacy and the promotion of an inclusive culture will have a particularly important strategic significance in promoting global openness. China has proactively proposed major initiatives from four perspectives to expand and open up with high quality, supporting the construction of the whole Hainan Island pilot free trade zone, exploring the construction of a free trade port with Chinese characteristics, further promoting investment and trade facilitation, entering the 3.0 era of high-quality open development, as well as injecting new impetus into the new globalization. The idea of building a ‘community of human destiny’ proposed by Xi Jinping is also rapidly spreading across the world and taking root everywhere. We believe that inclusive culture is the ideological foundation for promoting open development. China has already launched the new era of high-quality open development, and has to actively promote a higher level of globalization, while new globalization needs the nourishment of inclusive culture.

Topic: Is China refashioning the established global order?

Abstract: A framework of institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF has guided the relationships between countries since the 1940s. They take a multilateral approach but leave the United States and other neoliberal states with great influence. In recent years, Chinese has tried a new approach towards international engagement, focused more on bilateral, transactional exchanges of resources. The so-called ‘China model’ has already had a huge impact in Africa and Southeast Asia. Does it mark a process by which China is refashioning the established order? Will the Chinese Renminbi one day overtake the US dollar as the dominant global currency? And how can China engage in global programmes alongside countries that have political systems very different from its own?

Topic: Cooperative governance at macro-regional and global levels: global justice for the poor

Abstract: The presentation deals with the issue of macro-regions concerning governance for global justice. In particular, it will analyse the potential for global transcultural consensus among states and cultures by means of international and transnational macro-regional cooperation and dialogues on poverty and other problems. It is a contribution towards overcoming the confrontations between states and cultures and the eradication of the coercive imposition of restrictions. It requires a formulation of governance based on the interests and values of individual states and macro-regions and the dialogue among them. The interpretation of the paper is a contribution to creating ‘unity in plurality’, i.e. a universality of global justice within the plurality of states and cultures.
The Belt and Road is an example of an initiative that contributes to this kind of global cooperation based on a synthesis of traditional bilateral and multilateral cooperation and a new macro-regional cooperation. The presentation will explain the importance of macro-regions in this framework, focusing mainly on a comparative analysis of macro-regional institutionalized cooperation: the specific economic corridors, 16+1 Cooperation (Central and Eastern European Countries + China), CAREC (Central Asia Regional Cooperation), FOCAC (Forum on China–Africa Cooperation), and China–CELAC (China–Latin America and the Caribbean States Forum). Overcoming one-sided unilateralism, the presentation will stress the multipolar and transpolar world that would develop global governance in order to avoid conflicts and to reach a higher quality of living for all the people.

Topic: Integrating environment and health into China's development strategy: new normals and new challenges

Abstract: Addressing the effects of environmental pollution on public health is now firmly on the policy agenda in China and strong new measures have been introduced across the environmental protection, health and other policy streams. However, progress will be challenged by the reliance of many poor regions on polluting industries and the human capital and other constraints on rapid upgrading of the economic structure. Effective implementation will require not only stronger environmental regulation and enforcement, but also policies to ensure that the costs of reducing pollution do not fall disproportionately on poor regions and communities.

Topic: A study on the characteristics of ‘environmental justice’ in China from CNKI bibliometric data: 2008–2017

Abstract: Based on research papers from 8,000 Chinese academic journals and dissertations and theses from 752 institutions in CNKI during 2008–2017, the bibliometric statistical results were analysed with paper titles (or keywords or abstracts) that had a focus on ‘environmental justice’ or ‘ecological justice’. The results showed that in May 1981, CAI Shouqiu from Wuhan University published a paper ‘Environmental ethics should be promoted’ in the Journal of Wuhan University (SS edition), in which the concept ‘environmental ethics’ was first introduced. But the concept of ‘ecological justice’ was first reported in 1988, in the article ‘On ecological morality’ written by ZHOU Hong from Yunnan University in Thinking (Sixiang Zhanxian). In it, he wrote: ‘Ecological justice means that the behavior of individuals or social groups conforms to the principle of ecological balance and the people's desire to protect the environment.’ Ten years later, in 1998, CAI Shouqiu published ‘On the development of contemporary environmental law’ in Studies in Law and Business, in which he first introduced the concept of ‘environmental justice’. From 2008 to 2017, studies on this theme increased very rapidly, from 97 (in 2008) to 168 (in 2017), finally reaching a total of 1,321 papers in journals. At the same time, the number of dissertations and theses reached a total of 445, from 27 (in 2008) to 47 (in 2017). Hunan Normal University, Wuhan University and Zhongnan University of Economics and Law are the top three universities publishing papers on such topics. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences published the greatest number of relevant papers, while the Academia Sinica (Taiwan) had the highest number of citations/paper and downloads/paper.  For ‘environmental justice’ studies published in journals, WANG Yuchen from Zhongnan University of Economics and Law has received the most total citations and total downloads. As for graduate theses, the graduate tutor XU Xiangmin from Ocean University of China has received the largest number of total citations and total downloads. The hot keywords appear to be ‘environmental justice’ (623), ‘ecological justice’ (246), ‘ecological civilization’ (209), ‘justice’ (79) and ‘ecological crisis’ (76).  During the past 10 years, the most cited journal paper (total 82 citations, of which 43 are from Master’s degree theses, and 35 are from journal articles) was written by WANG Caibo from Jilin University, ‘Analysis of the challenge of NIMBY conflict to the government: analysis from the perspective of environmental justice’, published in Social Science Front in 2012. It emphasized that the adverse consequences of NIMBY facilities are not borne by all but only by a small number of people. The NIMBY conflict reflects the inconsistency between those who bear the consequences of NIMBY facilities and those who enjoy social welfare, which runs counter to the idea of environmental justice.  The most downloaded journal paper was ‘On ecological Marxism and the study of ecological civilization theory in China’, written by WANG Yuchen from Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, which was published in Studies on Marxism in 2011. He emphasized that, ‘on the basis of historical materialism theory, we should regard the realization of environmental justice as the value principle of ecological civilization theory research, effectively safeguard China's environmental rights and developmental rights, and promote the sustainable development of China's economy and society.’ The most cited dissertation for a PhD degree (96 citations) was ‘A legal philosophy study on environmental justice’, written in 2005 by Dr M. A. Jing from Jilin University; it also got 3,583 downloads. The most downloaded dissertation was ‘Research on ecological ethics and ecological ethics research’, written in 2013 by Dr WANG Shunling from Beijing Jiaotong University; it got 4,355 downloads. CNKI's database can help us make a historical evaluation of the academic impact of research results in this field.

Topic: Global environmental governance for a digital world

Abstract: Digitization is changing the shape of the global economy and the way humans relate to the world. Information technology provides new tools, new means and new models for global environmental governance. In a digital world, we call for an inclusive, pluralistic model of global governance, open and transparent cooperation in the economic and social fields, achieving the sharing of resources among countries, strengthening infrastructure and market connectivity, exerting optimal efficiency of resources, relieving global environmental pressure and constructing the human destiny community that can benefit the people of the world.
At the same time, the era of the digital economy has come. Internet, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and other technologies have accelerated the digital economy to the pinnacle of development. Information technology has greatly promoted the development of productivity, and data resources are becoming the energy and wealth of the digital economy. The popularization of information technology has promoted the overall digitization of society, and data and information assets are infiltrating into all aspects of production and life. On the other hand, as people become more and more dependent on data and information technology, information brings people great convenience and high efficiency. At the same time, the digital world will also bring problems, such as false information, digital garbage, network pollution and so on. Therefore, the establishment of a digital world environmental governance system has become an urgent and important issue.

Topic: Understanding Chinese investments and how European progressives build strategies with regard to China

Abstract: It is very important to understand how China carved out a new role for itself in the current stage of global capitalism. China is now seen as globalization’s new champion, with growing investments not just in the developing countries but also in Europe and other advanced economies. Rather than creating divisions along nationalist lines by China-bashing, progressive movements and organizations should find ways to forge common ground with the millions of workers and rights campaigners inside China to increase the global demand for an end to global inequality, injustices, exploitation of workers and the destruction of our planet.
Challenging the power of capital (whether Chinese or not) must not take the form of populist measures that raise fear and hatred against others. Rather, it should take the form of building collective working class power at a global level. For movements and NGOs, the primary questions are whether the new powers and wealth of Chinese companies/the Chinese state are serving the interests of the workers and the poor in China, as well as in the core countries and the periphery where it invests and trades. If not, how do we raise our concerns about the increasing power of corporations in general and do away with the asymmetry of power between governments, corporations and people?

Topic: Social exclusion and the role of guanxi against the background of social stratification: case studies of land distribution in two Chinese villages

Abstract: This paper is based on two case studies of residential land distribution in two Chinese villages (in Zhenjiang and Guangdong province, respectively) between 2015 and 2018. Here, residential land allocation has shifted from a household-based process to a market-based process, resulting in spatial segregation and social exclusion of the poor. Three spatial divisions are clearly formed in both villages, with an area of villas for the upper class, peasant apartments for the middle class and old houses for the lower class. Five features of this exclusion are identified. 1) Some rich villagers use guanxi (personal connections) with village cadres to acquire more land and apartments in order to increase their profits, leading to exclusion of the poor who do not have guanxi. 2) Since poor young men can no longer obtain land in the traditional way for free, as was the case under the previous method of land distribution, and cannot afford to buy an apartment, and young women require their groom to have a new apartment or house, poor young men are excluded from the marriage market, resulting in shrinking guanxi networks, poor social capital, and loss of face. 3) The poor are excluded from ritual activities, since it is traditionally believed that a person with good luck will bring good luck to others, while a person with bad luck will bring bad luck; this leads to a decline in the ritual capital held by the poor. 4) Owing to the symmetrical characteristic of the renqing ethic, the poor are excluded from holding ‘renqing activities’ (traditional reciprocal activities such as banqueting and gift giving). As the rich have significantly increased the expense of such activities beyond the ability of the poor to reciprocate, the poor lose face and their social circles are narrowed. 5) With socio-spatial segregation between the rich and the poor, gossip, which in the past could affect the whole village, now becomes less effective. However, since the rich dominate the politics of the village, their gossip may become the public voice, and gossip by the poor does not result in social supervision and social sanction by the village cadres and the rich. Thus, guanxi and renqing exacerbate social exclusion, which in return shrinks the guanxi networks held by the poor and weakens their social capital, leading to the perpetuation of inequality. Although this phenomenon of social exclusion inside villages may have its institutional causes, its cultural causes cannot be neglected.

Topic: From ‘embedment’ to ‘integration’: Chinese migrant workers’ road to citizenization, from a spatial justice perspective

Abstract: he integration of migrant workers into cities in China has become a difficult problem for the sustainable and coordinated development of our society, owing to its huge scale and its unprecedented concentration in terms of time and space in the history of human urbanization. One of the key breakthroughs in this study is to creatively refine the concept of the ‘embedded state’, which is a highly symbolic and constructive category, based on the core concept of ‘spatial production’ in Western space sociology and in view of the reality of the process of urbanization of migrant workers in China. The mechanism for progression along the evolutionary path of migrant workers from ‘embedding’ to ‘integrating’ has transformed spatial sociology from Western social critical theory into social construction theory with Chinese characteristics.
‘Embedded’ survival is the representation of the living conditions of Chinese migrant workers at this stage, which reflects not only vividly but also profoundly the real picture of migrant workers' personal experience in the urban social space. This study analyses the current situation of migrant workers' citizenization in China from the point of view of four dimensions: living space, communication space, right space and spiritual space. The study shows that the average value of the objective degree of ‘embedding–integration’ (four first-level indicators, 11 second-level indicators and 38 third-level indicators) and the subjective degree of ‘embedding–integration’ (10 indicators) are 52.03 and 51.64, respectively, indicating that Chinese migrant workers have passed through the difficult ‘surface embedding’ and ‘moderate embedding’ stages and have advanced to enter the critical period of ‘deep embeddedness’, which gradually evolves in the direction of ‘basic integration’.
Floating ‘embedded’ survival is the direct representation of the living conditions of migrant workers in the construction industry. Low-quality living space, the absence of the right space, the separation of communication space and the lack of spiritual space directly reflect the ‘embedded’ life of these workers. The ‘floating’ nature of the living space of migrant workers in the construction industry, especially the ‘floating’ nature of residence, is an important reason for the significant differences between them and other migrant workers in the right space, communication space, spiritual space, integration and other aspects, making them the most difficult group of migrant workers to integrate into the city. The cost to the government of the citizenization of migrant workers is a matter of great concern to academics and policy-makers. This study also constructs a standardized model of migrant workers' citizenization.

Topic: Migrants’ right to the city: small property rights housing in China

Abstract: According to UN-Habitat, more than one billion people worldwide live in informal settlements (e.g. slums), which lack legal security of tenure. In recent years, a large amount of informal housing has been built in suburban or urban villages in China, which has been termed ‘Small Property Rights Housing’ (SPRH). The SPRH cannot be granted legal title or security of tenure according to the Land Administration Law. With rising house prices in China, an increasing number of low-income groups such as migrant workers are interested in purchasing such informal housing, thanks to its affordability. According to unofficial data, the total SPRH amounts to 6.6 billion m², consisting of the homes of 80 million inhabitants. As an emerging phenomenon of informal settlements in China, much about SPRH remains unknown. Based on empirical data, this research finds that the lack of legal title does not affect SPRH dwellers’ behaviours and daily life on the ground, which is examined from the perspectives of investment, access to credit, transaction value and probability of eviction. For example, despite the lack of de jure security of tenure, it is common to find that SPRH dwellers spend a significant amount of money on renovating, decorating and furnishing their houses. Therefore, the SPRH, which has emerged by means of self-organization or spontaneously, grants migrants rights to the city, especially housing rights.

Topic: Rethinking sovereignty in the age of atrocity crimes and multiple internal and inter-state conflicts

Abstract: I will dissect Myanmar’s internal conflicts and international state crimes against the backdrop of the tensions between the predominantly Western discourses of human rights and the absolutist perspective on sovereignty espoused by formerly colonized, semi-colonized or subjugated countries such as China, ASEAN nations and Japan. I will ground my reflective analysis in my 30 years of first-hand involvement in international politics and human rights activism.
In the progressively inter-connected world of commerce, conflicts and (global) communities, the idea of state sovereignty vis-à-vis state responsibility (of states over the well-being of human persons within their territorial confines) needs serious and urgent rethinking. This need is more pressing in cases where states are credibly accused of atrocity crimes (specifically, crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide, which have been established as legal crimes). The rethinking of sovereignty in the face of atrocity crimes committed by member states of the current world order clustering around the United Nations is not simply an academic exercise, but an act that can potentially have life-and-death consequences for millions of humans in wretched conditions, including conflicts, wars and systemic oppression. One such contemporary case involves the UN member state of Myanmar, which, according to the ICC Prosecutor’s Office, forcibly deported 700,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar (formerly Burma) at the lightning speed of 100,000 per week on to the soil of a neighbouring sovereign state, Bangladesh, in the autumn of 2017. Sino–Burmese border instability is another permanent spill-over impact of Myanmar’s internal conflicts on China along the 1,000-mile-long border, where Myanmar armed forces – the Air Force and the Army – are engaged in what the British used to call a ‘pacification campaign‘ against the autonomy-minded communities, such as Kachin Christians, a local Han Chinese group named Kokang and others in the country’s highlands.
Finally, I will attempt to offer a more human-centred approach to resolving contemporary conflicts and international state crimes.

Topic: Conflict resolution in international relations: a classical Chinese perspective

Abstract: Knowledge production in international relations has entered an unprecedented era. The use of classical Chinese resources for innovation in global governance has increasingly drawn attention from scholars in Chinese international relations and beyond. This speech critically reviews knowledge production in global justice and points out three features of rethinking the world and innovating new perspectives on global justice, namely decentralization and fragmentation; transformation in the global political landscape; and emergence of the Chinese international relations narrative. In terms of international conflict resolution, it is possible to excavate useful resources from Chinese civilization and to invite them to dialogue with current global understandings of the origins and causes of conflict, the peaceful ending of conflict and retribution, and reconciliation. This may bring us better versions of peacemaking, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, good offices, mediation, negotiation, diplomacy and arbitration. One beginning point is to build global moral consensus on the platform of universal conscience. This presentation will discuss the ideas of liangzhi and ceyin in Confucianism, also findings in Chinese Buddhism to illustrate how classical resources can be applied. It concludes that scholars of China and the West should focus on our common understanding of morality and reason – something of which both China and the West have great traditions.

Topic: The adjustment of China's labour relations and its related social creation in the context of globalization, equity and justice

Abstract: The adjustment of labour relations in Chinese society has a specific historical background, that is, the background of the transition from the traditional unit system to a post-unit system and from a planned economy to market economy. The contradiction of labour relations is mainly reflected in the following aspects: 1. How a large number of laid-off workers in the process of reforming state-owned enterprises obtain the labour security offered by enterprises; 2. In the Chinese context, the rise of private enterprises is in conflict with the growing material and cultural needs of labour workers; 3. The management mode of a large number of foreign-funded enterprises is in conflict with the behaviour mode of local Chinese labour workers. In the past, in China, the adjustment of labour relations and the governance of labour issues exhibited the following characteristics: 1. Modification of the Labour Contract Law and reform of the labour employment method, with an eye to globalization; 2. Adjustment of the social systems of labour relations in the direction of fairness and justice to make them more inclusive, including adjustment of the labour security system, the minimum wage system and the tripartite consultation system; 3. Making benign adjustments with social creativity regarding labour relations, including the construction of non-public enterprise labour unions with Chinese characteristics and the EAP plan for corporate social work. However, the adjustment of labour relations and the governance of labour issues are not smooth sailing. In the future, the improvement of the working mechanism of China's labour relations requires the government to increase support, the active participation of the working people, the vigorous development of social organizations, the improvement of the social environment, the improvement of labour ethics and the development of a corporate culture. With the continued vision of globalization, the orientation of fairness and justice, the foundation of inclusive social development and the impetus of social creation, the aim is constantly to improve labour relations and promote labour–management unity.

Topic: Urban governance in Hong Kong: the challenges to social justice and the emergence of new pathways to social creativity

Abstract: This paper focuses on the socio-spatial politics of land redevelopment and displacement in Hong Kong, with particular attention to the last two decades. It offers both an investigation of the dominant ideology of economic prosperity (Tang et al., 2011), through an in-depth study of its impact on the daily lives of local residents, and an analysis of the forms of social activism and resistance to the urban planning interventions that have determined the transformation of the physical and socio-economic structures of retailing and dwelling in colonial–global Hong Kong. The selected focus is the progressive annihilation of street markets to create space for ultra-modern, luxury high-rise buildings.
Street markets offer a unique lens to investigate the political discourses of the urban (Lefebvre, 1970) and to analyse the negotiation processes between the vertical strategies of gentrification and the horizontal tactics of urban resistance. Street markets are barometers of equity and economic development, collective sociality and sustainability, living heritage, social prosperity and community cohesion (Watson, 2005; Stillerman 2006; Shepherd, 2009; Marinelli 2018).
This paper will concentrate on the Sham Shui Po markets area in Kowloon, Hong Kong, to analyse two main elements: 1) the nexus between politics and policy, as well as policies and practices; and 2) the critical role that place-shaping and people-making play in the construction of collective identity in public space. Located in a district characterized by a high number of post-war public housing estates, Apliu Street is well known for its hawkers’ stalls and shops selling electronics and electrical components. However, the wider area has progressively witnessed increasing numbers of formal, semi-formal and informal street-level economic activities (e.g. the Yen Chow Street Hawkers Bazaar, also called Pang Jai, the Tung Chau Street so-called ‘temporary market’, etc.), which are now operating for at least 18 hours a day. In this paper, I engage with the concepts of stratification, precarity and democracy in action, both in a spatial–temporal and a political sense, to unpack the multi-layered identity of the Sham Shui Po markets area. This angle of analysis will enable us to better understand the role of concerned civil society organizations vis-à-vis government authorities in the battle ‘to save the market’ and create alternative pathways to social creativity.

Topic: Industry 4.0 and 5G using the example of the German automotive industry

Abstract: Reference to ‘Industry 4.0’ was made for the first time at the German Hannover Trade Fair of Industrial Technology in 2011. In general, Industry 4.0 includes the development and integration of innovative information and services; which involves the utilization of communication technologies in industry. In fact, Industry 4.0 actually means the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’. The first began with the development of the steam engine and the introduction of heavy mechanical manufacturing equipment in England. The second was characterized by the utilization of electricity, which allowed the use of the conveyor belt and the assembly line, and the third industrial revolution brought about the automation of production processes through the massive use of electronics and information and communication technologies. Ultimately, the evolvement of cyber technologies and their integration into digital ecosystems is the basis for the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. German industry is currently among the world leaders in the automotive and other industrial fields. Along with its global suppliers, it provides jobs and prosperity not only for the workers in Germany but also for millions of workers around the world. This makes the notion of industrial and political isolationism all the more ridiculous. My short presentation will concentrate on how the German automotive industry will be using 5G network technologies – the Internet of things – which in future will be the ultimate key to industrial globalization.

Topic: A new era of global interconnected manufacturing

Abstract: Technology drives the world to rapid changes, and the rapid development of technologies such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and mobile networks is increasingly connecting the world into a whole. This has changed our society and life, and has enabled humanity to usher in a new era of unlimited integration of ‘Heaven, Earth, Humans and Things’. At present, the consumer Internet is shifting to the industrial Internet. In such a change, global interconnected intelligence will no doubt become the focus of development, as well as one of the cores and commanding heights of competition among all sectors, all industries and all countries. In such a big scene of transformation and changes, economic and social development will inevitably face many new problems and new challenges. At the same time, it will also obtain new opportunities never previously found.

Title: ‘Democracy’, ‘digital traces’ and ‘digital humanities’

Abstract: This presentation uses the case of Brexit in the UK to ask how ‘democratic’ the West is in today’s digital age. It discusses the challenges/opportunities in reflecting and understanding the general public with complexity and dynamics; and the various issues with regard to ‘digital traces’, such as ownership, accessibility and governance. It argues that China has already built a more integrated cross-platform digital infrastructure than the West. However, turning digital data into meaningful ‘digital traces’ needs interdisciplinary research – ‘digital humanities’.

Topic: The big data economy reshapes the global economic pattern: diversification and integration driven by policy competition and the scale economy

Abstract: The transformation of the big data industry has forged the direction of the development of the world economy. The sustainable development of the big data economy depends on a relatively sound data ecology and industrial layout. It is significant to explore the social changes and cultural transformation of global society by big data, in view of the challenges to the social structure of global society from the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union and the United States’s withdrawal from many international organizations. The demand for traditional labour in the data industry has fallen sharply. Labour costs are no longer an important factor affecting the distribution of investment by developed countries in developing countries. The data industry strategy will enable traditional industrial countries to regain their status as manufacturing powers. The United States has taken the lead in the field of artificial intelligence, and traditional European industrial countries such as Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom have also actively explored the transformation enabled by big data. Data economic policy competition will further accentuate the development and differentiation between emerging economies. The ‘data gap’ and the data infrastructure gap will also become important constraints for the transformation of the economy in areas where the development of the big data economy is lagging behind, as for instance in Mexico. Emerging economies, such as China, South Korea and India, are the most typical examples of big data development that have established advanced industrial systems and will become leaders in the digital economy. China has been at the forefront of digital development in the world in many fields. In addition to promoting the integration of the Internet and traditional business forms, China has also begun to actively explore in the field of advanced manufacturing.

Topic: Why are other countries afraid of the IT revolution in China?

Abstract: China has set a national goal of becoming the world’s leading technology nation by 2025. It has already taken great strides in the advanced use of information technology and big data. In this presentation, we’ll hear how the United States has responded to this situation by trying to restrict Chinese exports to America as part of a trade war. President Trump and his advisers claim that Chinese companies often steal key ideas and show little respect for the rules of international trade. The presentation will then turn to how two major Asian countries, India and Japan, view China’s new status as a technology leader. For Japan, China is something of a rival but many famous Japanese cooperate with their Chinese counterparts on technology projects. India fears disruption to its service sector by competition from China and is also pressing China to open its markets to more Indian companies, such as telecom firms.

Topic: The academic development of philosophy and the social sciences in China over the last decade based on the big data of literature (2006–2015)

Abstract: Based on more than 7 million articles from 6,268 academic journals in CNKI from 2006 to 2015 and CNKI China Knowledge Resource Integrated Database as the statistical data source, using bibliometrics and comparative analysis methods, CNKI has quantitatively analysed the evaluation indexes and data on philosophy, the social sciences and other major subjects in China in statistical years from different dimensions, such as development trends, the current situation of the disciplines, institutional statistics, scholar analysis, research hot-spots and influential literature. The findings show that, in the last decade, the overall academic output of philosophy and the social sciences has increased and is now making steady progress, and the quality of research has improved greatly. Outputs in economics and pedagogy are the largest, while management science, Marxism, psychology, military science, archaeology and religious studies have attained less output. Institutions of higher education are the mainstay of academic research on philosophy and the social sciences in China at present. The overall quality of the articles from academies of social sciences and other scientific research institutions is high. The increase in researcher numbers has gradually stabilized, but over 90% of them have published fewer than five papers in the past 10 years. These big-data-based analytical methods and findings provide a valuable reference for managers of academic research in making decisions, for academic institutions in making development plans, for scholars in choosing research directions and for academic journals in soliciting and publishing work.

Topic: An analysis of the measurement and path of improvement of Chinese culture’s international influence

Abstract: Cultural influence is embodied in the size, direction and role of the various elements of culture in the thoughts or actions of others. Measuring the international influence of Chinese culture consists mainly of the following aspects: the cognition and sensitivity of cultural symbols; the radiation and force of cultural carriers; the influence of cultural traditions; the spread of ideas and the penetration of ideas. To enhance the international influence of Chinese culture, we should focus on the following aspects: exploring traditional culture, promoting cultural innovation and rallying public support for the concepts and spirits of Chinese culture; from the perspective of contemporary culture, vigorously spreading contemporary Chinese values; responding to other cultural challenges and demonstrating the unique charm of Chinese culture; constructing a communication system to show the appeal, attractiveness and force of Chinese culture; promoting development through exchanges, strengthening ties with overseas Chinese, leveraging the role of friends who know about and are friendly to China, and exploring overseas cultural trade; lining up with the international cultural market to enhance international competitiveness; strengthening cultural diplomacy and giving play to the role of public cultural construction; participating in all endeavours to improve policies and providing safeguarding measures.

Abstract: The history, current situation and trend of Chinese studies at home are closely related to those of Chinese studies overseas, and the relevant literature overlaps and partly integrates these two fields.
Nowadays, Chinese studies are being paid more attention around the world, and the increase in Chinese emigration shows the trend of globalization.
In this context, it is necessary to determine and compare the general situation and characteristics of overseas Chinese research institutions in the world, as represented by the Jinan University Library – The Archive for Overseas Chinese Study, in order to provide a more effective and convenient knowledge service for scholars and research institutions.

Topic: Academic publishing experiences with China and the vision of the ‘Belt and Road initiative’ in international publishing collaboration

Abstract: In the West, it is widely accepted that China is a successful economy but few people know why. In the West, many experts talk about China but Chinese experts have no voice in the West. In the West, everyone realizes that China makes nice objects but 5,000 years of Chinese culture are not understood. China will develop as a nation when its historical, cultural, social and technological wealth is understood and appreciated globally. We feel that this is the time with the greatest global potential for international collaboration in academic publishing. Paths International is a British publisher that has spent the last eight years publishing academic books and journals about China written by scholars and researchers from China. During this period, international demand for these titles has grown. There is increased acceptance for books from China published in English. China has a wealth of academic capability and leads the world in research about that country. Increasingly important subjects are history, philosophy, international relations, social sciences and architecture, as well as business, government, economics and finance. Drawing on the vision and background of the ‘Belt and Road initiative’, The Belt and Road Initiative Journal is now in its second year. This journal discusses China's international vision for growth, development and cooperation throughout Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. The authors are researchers from China and practising experts in the Belt and Road initiative. International academic scholarship is a truly global endeavour and we are fortunate that China has emerged as a global player.
Key points:

  • Eight years’ experience in academic publishing with China
  • Challenges and opportunities of international academic publishing collaboration
  • Vision of Chinese academic publishing development under the ‘Belt and Road initiative’

Topic: Translating Chinese knowledge to the globe: the case of Intellect China Library

Abstract: In this presentation, we will introduce the idea and ethos that underpin the Intellect China Library, a book series that was launched in 2015 by Intellect, to publish English translations of current Chinese scholarship in art and culture. So far, the series has collaborated with major Chinese institutions such as the Beijing Film Academy, the China Film Archive, Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences and the China Academy of Sciences. In the course of these collaborations, the Intellect China Library has encountered a number of theoretical and practical issues concerning cultural and linguistic translation. What is the best way to translate Chinese scholarship for Western readers and to help them participate in international debates? The Intellect China Library is, to a degree, an experiment in practice-led research itself, and is evolving its own answers to these questions. While the number of English translations of Chinese scholarship will certainly increase in the future, how such cultural and intellectual diplomacy should be conducted is also an urgent topic that requires discussion and debate to achieve some form of consensus between academia and the field of academic publishing. This presentation will share some of the challenges that the Intellect China Library has faced to date and the solutions that it has adopted to tackle these challenges and to take this debate further.

Panel III Academic research, knowledge services and digital publishing

Chair: Dr Baozhen Luo

Dr Narisong Huhe is a Lecturer in Politics at the University of Strathclyde. His research is inspired by a central question: how can we understand the formation and impact of public attitude and opinion, particularly in those societies with rapid socioeconomic changes and technological advancements (e.g. the Internet and social media)? His research unfolds along two different yet closely related lines. The first line of research extends the work of his dissertation and focuses on how various personal and contextual characteristics affect the formation of public opinion. The second focuses on the potential impacts of new media (e.g. the Internet) on public opinion. His recent works have been published in European Union Politics, Political Research Quarterly and the British Journal of Political Science.

Topic: How is research funded in social science? An exploratory study

Abstract: Scholars across the world rely on research funds to support their research. While there are many different sources of research funds, the governments have always been the main sources. This is particularly true in China. To understand how government funds can affect social science research, this presentation examines funds approved by the National Foundation of Social Science (guojia sheke jijin). The findings from the study on which this is based have important implications for our understanding of the developments in social science research in China.

Topic: Theme distribution and knowledge production in China's international relations journals

Abstract: Since the reform and opening up, and owing to its own development and progress, China’s relationship with the world has become much closer and China has gradually integrated into international society. China's diplomacy has become more active and effective. In this process, China's international relations (IR) research and its journals have also grown rapidly. There are now more than 50 academic journals in IR research in mainland China. They pay attention not only to theoretical innovation and normative research in IR, but also to the observation and analysis of the development of international relations from the perspective of China. Their international reach and influence are also being advanced substantially. However, the knowledge production and dissemination of China’s IR journals still have many problems and challenges to meet.
With the support of CNKI’s big data platform, this presentation reports on a study collecting and analysing the research topics of China’s IR journals in the last decade (2008–2017). On the one hand, it tries to present changes in the agenda and topics of China's IR research, while on the other hand comparing the domestic and international citations of the top journals such as World Economy and Politics, Foreign Affairs Review and International Studies, to further illustrate the effectiveness and influence of the production and dissemination of knowledge in China's IR journals, revealing the relationship between China's historical background, academic system and knowledge production from a specific perspective, and understanding more profoundly the process and vision of China's relationship with the world.
In short, knowledge production of China's IR journals has been caught in the tension between internationalization and localization. How to build a platform, bridge the gap and promote communication and understanding between China and the world is our real mission and responsibility in the new era.

Ms GUAN Xiaolan, Deputy General Manager of CNKI International Branch Company. Ms Guan obtained her Bachelor’s degree, majoring in English, in 2005 and her Master’s degree on Library Science in 2010. She has worked for CNKI, the leading E-resources and knowledge service provider in China, for over 10 years and has rich knowledge and experience in digital publishing and the library service in China. Ms Guan has been head of CNKI’s international marketing since 2010 and focuses on building CNKI as a first-class world publishing and knowledge service brand.

Topic: Technology is changing academic research – CNKI’s transformation

Abstract: The digital revolution in education is going full steam ahead, and is affecting everything outside and inside of the classroom. Academic research is experiencing a high-tech makeover, and also requires active interactions with product innovation. In China, the industry of E-learning is rising and affecting every family and person. With the new technology of the Internet, any child or adult can learn and practise English anywhere at any time; with new technology, students can learn not only from dry textbooks but also from video and interesting animations. New trends require new digital publishing and a new service. During the last two years, CNKI has primarily focused on how to enhance and improve the user experience by a new publishing model and knowledge service of the new generation; in addition, it recognizes that research into work flow should be more concentrated, because most research tools are used in the context of actual research. The report will share the exact application of new technology to CNKI’s service, by a deep analysis of the developing background, as well as its features and utility for the real research environment. Finally, the presentation will also raise the possibility of a future framework and prove the importance of convenience, interconnection, collaboration, knowledge segmentation and centralization for research products.

Topic: How do Western media report China, how do Westerners perceive China?

Abstract: China receives a huge amount of coverage in the international media. The focus is often on political issues, especially the role of the President and the CPP. Many Chinese people to feel the international coverage is unduly negative. Yet reporters within China frequently complain that constraints on their work are becoming tighter, as the authorities prevent them from gathering information. In this talk, we’ll hear about the perception of the role of the press in China and elsewhere and the battle of ideas which takes place through the media.

Topic: A hidden treasure in university internationalization: Chinese studies libraries

Abstract: Internationalization has been a topic of discussion and debate in UK higher education for more than a decade. The internationalization of higher education advocates for the integration of a multicultural and global dimension into the goals and functions of higher education. While these discussions focus on the ways in which the ethos of multicultural and global citizenship is integrated into the curriculum, academic programmes and institutional culture, discussion about the potential role and contribution of academic services, such as libraries, archives and museums, has been largely absent, especially in the context of educational research. In this presentation, I use a case study approach to illuminate the rich and historical content of a UK Chinese Studies library and the ways in which the Chinese Studies library collection, as an embodiment of Chinese material culture, is embedded into university internationalization goals and processes. I demonstrate that with the development of theoretical debates on internationalization and ever deeper penetration of the value and practice of internationalization into UK higher education, the role and function of Chinese Studies libraries is also being rapidly transformed from a niche area studies focus into the mainstream academic disciplinary field. This transformation provides an opportunity for both the Chinese Studies libraries to reinvigorate their central role in education and research and provide a significant base for universities to internationalize research and education. Not only do Chinese Studies libraries hold collections of books and cultural objects, but also, and perhaps more significantly, they have experts with knowledge, skills and experience. If the opportunity is seized, university academic services can contribute significantly to university internationalization and at the same time provide academic library resources and expertise with an opportunity for a new and exciting role.

Topic: Bridging the digital divide: online participation and government responsiveness in China

Abstract: The widespread use of information and communication technology (ICT) has reshaped the public sphere in the digital era, creating both digital democracy and a digital divide in political life. The Internet is widely touted for its potential to facilitate government responsiveness and reduce inequality in political influence among citizens, by lowering the participation cost and amplifying the pressure from below, but little research has examined the online opinion–policy nexus. Based on a series of big data analytics of a mass of administrative data on online citizen–government interaction in China, the study on which this presentation is based provides new micro foundations for both the facilitating effect and equalizing impact of Internet-based participation in local government policies at the regime level. The study finds that the Chinese government is considerably responsive to citizens' opinions, exhibiting a rapidly growing response rate at both individual and policy level, and the popularity of online participation-led local government to produce pro-redistributive policy, which disproportionately benefits the lower class.

Professor Xiangqun Chang is Director of the Global China Institute, a global academic institute for advancing the study of China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective, Editor of the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP), Editor-in-Chief of Global China Press and Senior Consultant to the Global China Thinktank, a knowledge-based think tank for social consultancy. She is also Honorary Professor of University College London (UCL), Professorial Research Associate at SOAS, University London, Visiting Professor of the University of Westminster, and holder of several Professorships and Senior Fellowships at Peking, Renmin and Fudan Universities in China. In the past two decades and more, Xiangqun has conducted over two dozen research projects. Her academic publications amount to over two million words (in English and Chinese), including Guanxi or Li shang wanglai?: Reciprocity, social support networks and social creativity in a Chinese village (Chinese 2009, English 2010).  Based on the above thorough and detailed ethnography of a Chinese village with longitudinal comparisons, and borrowing and adapting Chinese classical and popular usage of li shang wanglai (礼尚往来), she has been developing a general analytical concept – ‘recipropriety’ (互适), the mechanism by which Chinese society and Chinese social relations operate, thereby contributing to existing theories of reciprocity, social exchange, interaction, relatedness, social networks and social capital with characteristics of ‘ritual capital’.

Topic: The globalization of Chinese social sciences and the publication of the ‘Globalization of Chinese Social Sciences’ book series in English and Chinese languages

Abstract: This presentation draws on the assertion that Chinese social sciences have not been accorded their rightful prominence in general social science studies. It introduces Chinese social sciences, discussing their institutions, resources and methodology, and explains why we are keen to promote the globalization of Chinese social sciences in dual English and Chinese languages, with five published volumes as examples.

主旨演讲嘉宾:查尔斯·桑普福德、朱光磊

查尔斯·桑普福德(Charles Sampford)教授毕业于墨尔本大学哲学和法学系,1986年荣获牛津大学哲学博士。1991年,格里菲斯大学任命查尔斯·桑普福德为法学基金会会长,在此他设立了学术课程和研究文化,全球排名第43,另一项排名第38。查尔斯获得支持并领导了仅有的一所澳大利亚研究中心(ARC)及其法律,治理网络,他现任道德,治理和法律研究所所长,该研究所是在联合国大学倡议下成立的格里菲斯多校战略研究中心,同时任职牛津大学圣约翰学院的高级客座研究员,荣获了哈佛大学的高级福布来特学者奖。2008年6月,查尔斯在道德和诚信体系方面的工作被澳大利亚研究中心认为是最有影响力的所有学科中20名研究人员之一,他于2006年在牛津召开了世界伦理论坛,并举办了前三届诚信20峰会。查尔斯撰写了150多篇文章和章节,并与牛津大学出版社和其他领先的国际出版商共同完成了32本著作和资料汇编,目前正在为牛津大学出版社建立国际事务法治。查尔斯也是大律师和公司董事,并就众多政府,议会委员会,国际机构和非政府组织的治理问题开展相关咨询。他认为,普世价值观是无限对话的渐近线,但所有这些对话都促进了融合或对差异的认识,之后他在纽约,东京,北京,雅加达和吉隆坡的演讲中将此论点付诸于实践。

议题:建设全球正义治理的国际法

摘要:我们习惯于讨论主权国家指导人民和政体的治理价值观:自由,平等,博爱,公民身份,民主,人权,法治以及更普遍的“正义”。然而,随着世界“全球化”,一个关键问题是什么价值观来引导新兴的全球秩序。应该是西方版本的那些显而易见的价值观吗?或是历久弥新的文化之间的对话结果,对话在此中促进价值观的融合,某些情形下,对差异的认识和某些治理价值观很难应用到全球层面(例如民主和公民身份),有些是截然不同的概念(尤其是“正义”),有些则轻而易举的合理过渡。在2005年联合国世界首脑会议上,成员国一致认识到“在国家和国际层面普遍坚持和实施法治”的必要性,并且’重申了“基于法治和国际法”的国际秩序的承诺’(通常简写为”以规则为基础的国际秩序“)。
下一节将考虑坚持国际法治的论点:对超级大国以及中等国家的强有力的实用论点。它将强调法治是一种价值观,所有国家必须像批评别人一样乐意批评自己。但是,如果法治涉及到国际事务,需要的就不仅仅是口头服务了。要改变什么以及这种改变将如何发生?解决第一个问题的一种方法是检查那些有助于国内法治的因素,并询问是否存在或可能形成类似的因素。本文认为,在存在两种支持的情况下,国内法治是强有力的。首先,法治是国内政体中关键行动者或潜在行动者群体道德规范的重要组成部分,包括一系列专业人士和官员:士兵,法官,公务员,律师,以及在某种程度上,警察,企业高管和民选官员,相关的道德规范已经融入到他们的日常实践中。第二,有相当多的机构支持法治法院,议会,廉政机构(如监察员,审计长,廉政公署等),并且一般反对其违法行为(法律专业,民间社会和媒体)。这两种支持是相辅相成的,它们共同为一般(如果不是普遍的话)遵守法治提供了充分的理由。
特定群体和机构可能因司法管辖权而异,在国际层面是这样,可能也会不同。他们总体上比有效的自由民主国家弱得多,但它们比弱民主国家更强大,并且可以说是越来越强大。最后一节将考虑如果我们要寻求“全球正义”,法治如何需要得到其他治理价值观的补充。

议题:分化与包容:对中国社会阶层格局变迁的一个解读

提要
1、分化:四十年中国社会阶层结构变迁的主线
农业劳动者的数量持续减少,而且在产业结构调整的过程中还会继续减少。
工人的数量持续增加,“外出农民工”已经成为工人阶层的基本组成部分,“在地农民工”是工人阶层的边缘和过渡部分。
私营企业主和个体劳动者的数量持续增加,所谓在“体制外”就业的社会成员已经是大多数。
“知识分子”一词的“概括性”在下降,“知识分子”作为一个阶层在分化,“专业技术人员”已经成为一个相对独立的社会阶层。
2、包容:推动中国社会阶层结构变迁的重要方向
中国社会阶层结构变迁是一个“从身份到契约”的历史过程。这是一个积极的、进步的社会运动,是改革开放的重要组成部分,是中国发展长期向好的一个重要的基本面,也是民主和法治进程的基本社会基础。
面对这些变化,特别是面对这些变化所衍生的消极成分,处理阶层关系时,人们可以选择冲突,也可以选择包容。在目前的中国,最佳的主观选择是包容,而且在客观上参与这一过程各个阶层之间也是“可包容”的。
选择包容,其最基本的依据就是,这些衍生的消极问题大多是改革和发展中的问题,需要在深化改革和不断发展中来解决。比如,中国存在着全国、农村和城市三条“基尼系数”,又是一种葫芦形的收入分配差距,所以情况非常复杂,只能在逐步消融“二元社会”的过程中来解决;又如,近年来学术界议论较多的“阶层固化”,问题实际上并不比其他国家严重,社会流动仍然处于活跃状态,“固化”现象确实有,但不能说社会已经“固化”。
处理阶层关系时,如果选择包容,就要求:
在政治上坚持“不排队、不戴帽、不着急、不挑(tiao3)事”的思路,坚持在民主和法治的轨道上处理社会矛盾;
既要避免以“以阶级斗争为纲”的思路来处理问题,也要避免动辄以“公平”、“平等”来作为思考和处理问题的着眼点;
使产业结构调整、社会主义市场经济体制建设和城市化这三个推动社会阶层格局变迁的主要力量继续发挥作用并形成合力;
在转变政府职能的过程中建设服务型政府。

演讲者:苏珊· 罗伯逊(Susan Robertson)、张占仓、马雷克·赫鲁贝克(Marek Hrubec)

苏珊·罗伯逊(Susan Robertson)教授,剑桥大学教育学院教育社会学教授。在此之前,她曾在澳大利亚,新西兰和英国担任学术职务。她发表了150多种刊物和著作,广泛撰写了国家,教育政策制定和教育机会之间的关系。苏珊·罗伯逊教授是《全球化,社会和教育》的创始编辑,还是是院系《文化,政治和全球正义》研究集群的召集人。苏珊向政府,基金会和教师工会提供政策建议,尤其是在教育政策和治理方面。

议题:用社会正义治理卓越的教育体系

提要:如何治理教育系统对于每个社会都很重要,这是社会所有成员都必须通过的体制,也是塑造未来的核心。社会成员如何参与关于如何治理教育的讨论,如何围绕机会分配做出决策,在哪里做决策,以及如何调解不平等决策?当教育是国家关注的问题时,全球行动者应该对任何一个国家的教育系统有多少说法?确保经济发展和社会公正的最佳治理模式是什么?这些兼容的目标是否相互排挤?一些国家越来越多地将市场视为中立的利益仲裁者,并通过竞争成为创新的源泉。其他国家则认为,国家需要监督教育,以确保规划,实现长期的社会和发展目标。在这场干预中,我考虑到“过多”市场的挑战和风险以及过度竞争对教育系统带来的负面影响,质量,公平和其他社会正义问题会更加集中在框架中。

张占仓教授,1958年5月生,博士,研究员,博导,河南省社会科学院原院长,区域经济学专家,任中国区域经济学会副会长,是中国区域经济50人论坛专家。发表学术论文150多篇,主编、副主编学术专著30多部,在经济区、国际航空枢纽、自由贸易试验区、开放型经济等方面研究成果丰硕。

议题:以包容文化滋润开放发展

提要:世界四大文明发祥地唯有中华文明延绵不断、有序传承,根本原因就在于中华传统文化具有包容性特质。包容文化在坚持自己传统特色的同时,以开放的胸襟,不断吸收与借鉴外来文化的滋养,兼容并蓄,海纳百川,形成了博大精深风格,特别讲究“君子和而不同”。无论从中国经济由高速度增长阶段转向高质量发展阶段的历史需要分析,还是面对逆全球化沉渣泛起、全球贸易战影响政治经济格局演变来看,进一步倡导与弘扬包容文化对推动全球开放发展都具有特别重要的战略意义。中国主动提出四个方面的重大举措高质量扩大开放,支持海南全岛建设自由贸易试验区,探索建设中国特色自由贸易港,进一步促进投资和贸易便利化,进入高质量开放发展的3.0时代,将为新的全球化注入新的动力。习近平提出的构建“人类命运共同体”的理念,也正在全球快速扩散并在各地落地生根。我们认为,包容文化是促进开放发展的思想基础,中国已经开启高质量开放发展新时代,要积极推动更高水平的全球化,而新的全球化需要包容文化的滋润。

邓肯·巴特利特(Duncan Bartlett)先生,月刊政治杂志《亚洲事务》的编辑,定期为包括日经新闻和产经新闻在内的日本报纸撰稿,近期还服务于《一周中国》和中国国际广播电台。巴特利特先生在英国广播公司全球服务上发表了15年的全球商业报告,是前东亚通讯记者,现在在莫诺克广播电台做播音主持。

议题:中国是否在重塑已经建立的全球秩序?

提要:自20世纪40年代以来,包括世界银行和国际货币基金组织在内的机构框架引领着各国之间的关系。 他们采取多边方式,但仍使美国和其他新自由主义国家具有重大的影响力。 最近几年,中国尝试了一种新的国际参与方式,更多地侧重于双边和交易性的资源交换。所谓的“中国模式”已经在非洲和东南亚产生了巨大影响。它是否标志着中国正在改变既定秩序的进程? 有朝一日,人民币会超过美元成为主要的全球货币吗? 中国如何与其政治体系截然不同的国家共同参与全球项目?

议题:宏观区域和全球层面的合作治理:对贫困的全球正义

摘要:此次演讲涉及全球正义治理的宏观区域问题。特别的是,此次演讲将通过讨论国际和跨国宏观区域合作以及有关贫困和其他全球问题的对话,从而分析各国和多样文化之间跨文化协商的潜力,这次尝试根据个别国家和宏观区域的利益和价值为基础,从而制定一种有效的管理方式,这有助于克服国家和文化之间的对抗以及消除强制性限制。对该文件的解释有助于创造“多元统一”,即在多元国家和文化中实现全球正义的普遍性,“一带一路”就是将传统的双边和多边合作与新的宏观区域合作有机结合起来的全球合作的典范。本次演讲将解释宏观区域在全球合作框架中的重要性,并侧重宏观区域制度化合作的比较分析:包括具体的经济走廊,16 + 1合作(中欧和东欧国家+中国),CAREC(中亚区域合作),FOCAC(中非合作论坛)和China - CELAC(中国 - 拉美和加勒比国家论坛)等。所以,此次演讲将克服片面的单边主义,强调多极和跨极世界,要发展全球治理,从而避免冲突,提高人民的生活质量。

议题:将环境与健康融入中国发展战略:新常态与新挑战

提要:解决环境污染对公众健康的影响已经列入中国的重要政策议程,同时环保、健康等政策议程也出台了强有力的新举措。然而,许多贫困地区仍通过污染坏境获得经济利益,同时人力资本和其他其他限制经济结构快速升级的制约因素也对环保新措施的实施产生挑战。有效实施不仅需要加强环境监管和执法,还需要制定政策,确保贫困地区不需承担不成比例的环保费用支出。

议题:从CNKI文献计量学数据看中国“环境正义”的特征: 2008 - 2017年

提要:基于2008 - 2017年间CNKI收录的8000多份中国学术期刊的研究论文和来自752家教育机构的博硕士学位论文,分析了文献计量统计结果,论文标题集中在“环境正义”或“生态正义”(包括关键词或摘要)。结果表明,1981年5月,来自武汉大学的蔡守秋在《武汉大学学报》(社科版)上发表了一篇题为“应该提倡环境道德”的论文,其中首次引入了“环境道德”的概念。但是“生态正义”的概念最早是在1988年由云南大学的周鸿撰写的《试论生态道德》中报道的。它强调了“生态正义意味着个人或社会群体的行为符合生态平衡原则和人们保护环境的愿望”。十年后,1998年,蔡守秋在《法商研究》上发表了《论当代环境法学的发展》,首次介绍了“环境正义”的概念。从2008年到2017年,这类主题研究增长非常快,从97篇( 2008年)到168篇( 2017年),总共达到1321篇期刊论文。同时,学位论文达到445篇,从2008年的27篇到2017年的47篇。湖南师范大学、武汉大学和中南财经政法大学是在这方面发表论文最多的三所大学。中国社会科学院发表的关于此类主题的论文数量最多,而中央研究院(台湾)的篇均被引和篇均下载数量最高。在期刊上发表的“环境正义”研究中,中南财经政法大学的王雨辰在总被引用量和总下载量上都名列第一。至于研究生论文,来自中国海洋大学的研究生导师徐祥民在总被引量和总下载量上均名列第一。热门关键词是“环境正义”( 623 )、“生态正义”( 246 )、“生态文明”( 209 )、“正义”( 79 )和“生态危机”( 76 )。在过去10年中,被引用最多的期刊论文(共82引次,其中43次来自硕士学位论文,35次来自期刊文章)是由吉林大学的王彩波撰写的“试析邻避冲突对政府的挑战—以环境正义为视角的分析”,发表在2012年的《社会科学战线》。它强调,邻避设施所产生的不良后果并未由所有人来承担,而是仅落在一小部分人身上。邻避冲突体现的正是邻避设施后果的承担者与其所带来社会福利享受者的不一致性,这与环境正义的主张背道而驰。下载最多的期刊论文是中南财经政法大学的王雨辰写的《生态马克思主义与中国生态文明理论研究》,该论文发表在2011年的《马克思主义研究》上。他强调,应当以历史唯物主义理论为基础,把实现环境正义作为生态文明理论研究的价值原则,切实维护中国的环境权和发展权,促进中国经济社会的可持续发展。 被引用最多的博士论文是吉林大学的马晶博士于2005年完成的《环境正义的法哲学研究》,该论文被引用96次,也被下载了3583次。被下载最多的博士论文是北京交通大学王顺玲博士于2013年撰写的《生态伦理及生态伦理教育研究》,下载量达到4355次,也被引用了41次。 通过CNKI的数据库,可以对该领域研究成果的学术影响做出历史性评价。

议题:数字世界的全球环境治理

提要:数字化正在改变全球经济形态以及人类与世界的相处方式。信息技术为全球环境治理提供了新工具、新手段、新模式。在数字化的世界中,我们呼吁一个包容的多元化全球治理模式,在经济社会领域开展公开透明的合作,实现各国资源的共享,加强基础建设和市场互联互通,发挥资源最优效能,缓解全球环境压力,构建人类命运共同体,可以更好的造福世界各国人民。
与此同时,数字经济时代已然来临,互联网、云计算、大数据、人工智能等技术,更加速了数字经济往纵深发展。信息技术极大地促进了生产力的发展,数据资源正成为数字经济的能源和财富。信息技术泛在化推动了社会的全面数字化,数据和信息资产正向生产和生活的各个方面渗透。但另一方面,随着人们对数据和信息技术的依存度越来越高,信息化给人们带来极大的便利和高效率的同时,数字世界中也会沉沙泛起,虚假信息、数字垃圾、网络污染等伴随出现。因此建立数字世界的环境治理体系日益成为迫切而重要的课题。

议题:理解中国的投资以及欧洲进步论者如何制定有关中国的战略进步论者

提要:了解中国如何在全球资本主义的当前阶段为自己塑造了一个新的角色是非常重要的。中国现在被视为全球化的新领军者,不单在发展中国家,中国在欧洲和其他发达经济体的投资也在不断增长。民族运动和非政府组织应该找到工人与权利运动者之间的共同点,而不是简单地抨击中国民族主义路线以要求结束全球不平等、不公正及对工人阶级的剥削,并造成民族主义路线上的分裂。挑战资本的力量(无论是否来自中国),绝不能采取民粹主义措施,引发对他人的恐惧和仇恨。相反,它需要在全球层面上集结工人阶级的力量,对于民族运动和非政府组织来说,关键问题是,中国企业及政府是否维护中国工人和穷人的利益,以及为所投资和有贸易关系的核心国家和边缘国家提供相应的服务。如果不是,将如何提高大众对霸权日益增长的权力的关注,并消除政府、企业和人民之间权力的不对称?

议题:阶层分化背景下人情关系对村落内部社会排斥的影响

提要:本文基于2015至2018年间在中国两个村庄(浙江广东各一个村)所开展的个案研究。研究发现,在阶层分化的背景下,中国集体土地制度下的宅基地分配方式从“一户一宅,免费使用”向“市场买卖”转变,导致村里空间隔离的形成和针对穷人的各种社会排斥。两个村落明显形成三个空间分区:上层村民住别墅区,中层村民住农民公寓,下层村民住老区的旧房子。1)在空间分化过程中,关系发挥着重要作用,有些富人利用关系获得一大块宅基地和多套公寓,在分配上形成对下层村民的“经济排斥”和“关系排斥”。2)村庄中下层男青年因此买不起公寓,又无法以传统的方式免费获得土地,只能居住在旧宅中。由于婚姻市场中的性别失衡,婚姻也被视作女性向上流动的一次机会,本地年轻女子多要求新郎必须拥有新房,最终导致下层的村民只能通过跨省婚姻的形式来迎娶外地农民工,形成婚姻市场上的排斥。在这两个村庄,跨省婚姻则会被人耻笑,视作能力低下,并进一步使得他们在本地的关系网相对缩小、社会资本和社会地位降低。3)此外,阶层分化背景下村庄的仪式活动、人情往来、村庄舆论等也产生重大变化。穷人被排除在一些仪式活动之外,因为传统上村民认为运气好的人,即“好命人”(有钱,有地位,子孙多等)在仪式活动中会给其他参与者带来好运,而运气不好的人(没钱,没地位,生女不生男等)会带来晦气,所以穷人会被阻止参加一些重大礼式,导致仪式资本的降低;4)在人情往来中,富人通过提高人情活动(如请客,送礼,送红包)的开支,形成“炫耀性消费”,而穷人负担不起只能不办或者缩小人情往来的规模。如此一来,穷人不仅在村庄内失去颜面,也因人情往来的互动减少导致关系网缩小,这是人情伦理对称性特点引起的“人情排斥”。5)村庄舆论原本具有生产公共性的功能,即不同群体的“闲话”本来可以形成公共舆论影响村民的行为, 但由于不同阶层的社会空间隔离,富人主导村里的政治话语,使其可以成为公众的主流声音,但穷人的闲言碎语则被边缘化,其对富人和村官的舆论监督和网络制裁能力弱化。总之,阶层分化背景下产生的一系列排斥中,人情关系起到重要的推动作用,反过来又使得穷人的关系网缩小和社会资本的弱化,形成了不平等的再生产。这种现象虽有其机制上的原因,但其深层的文化原因值得探索。

议题:从“嵌入”到“融入”:空间正义视域下的中国农民工公民化之路

提要:中国农民工融入城市以其宏大的时空尺度和人类城市化历史上从未有过的时空压缩形成的艰巨性及复杂性,成为我国社会可持续协调发展的世纪难题。本研究的一个关键突破,就是在西方空间社会学核心概念“空间生产”的基础上,针对中国农民工市民化进程的实际,创造性的提炼出“嵌入态”这个极具空间象征意味和建构性的范畴,通过系统的实证经验研究,揭示出一条农民工从“嵌入”到融入的演化路经和推进机制,使空间社会学从西方社会批判理论发展为具有中国特色的社会建设理论。
“嵌入态”生存是对现阶段中国农民工生存状态的表征,既形象又深刻的反映了农民工现阶段在城市社会空间的亲身经历的真实图景。本研究从生存空间、交往空间、权利空间、精神空间四个维度全方位分析中国农民工市民化现状。研究显示,农民工客观“嵌入-融入”度(一级指标4个,二级指标11个,三级指标38个)均值为52.03分,主观“嵌入-融入”度(10个指标)均值为51.64分,表明中国农民工已渡过了艰难的“表层嵌入”、“中度嵌入”阶段,已进入“深度嵌入”的关键时期,正逐渐向“基本融入”的方向演化。
漂浮型“嵌入态”生存是建筑业农民工生存状态的直接表征,生存空间低质、权利空间缺席、交往空间分隔、精神空间缺乏是建筑业农民工“嵌入态”生活的直接写照。建筑业农民工生存空间的“漂浮”性,尤其是居住的“漂浮”性是导致他们与其它行业农民工在权利空间、交往空间、精神空间、融入意愿等各方面产生显著差异的重要原因,使他们成为农民工融入城市最困难的群体。农民工市民化的政府公共成本是学术界和决策部门高度关注的问题。本研究还建构了标准化农民工市民化模型。

议题:农民工在城市的住房权:以中国小产权房为例

提要:根据联合国人居署的数据显示,全球有超过十亿人口居住在非正规住房(如:贫民窟),这些住房没有合法的住房权保障。在中国,位于大城市郊区或城中村的小产权房被视为该类非正规住房,因为根据《土地管理法》,小产权房没有合法产权以及不能获得相应的房产证与土地使用证。由于正规商品房价格的逐年上升,城市的低收入群体(如:农民工)选择购买价格相对便宜的小产权房。非官方数据显示,全国小产权房面积越为66亿平方米,有8000多万居住者。目前关于中国小产权房的学术研究较少。根据实证调查,本研究发现小产权房的居民行为和日常生活并没有受到产权缺失的影响,比如,小产权房的居民花大量的资金对房屋进行装修。所以,自发秩序形成的小产权房在一定程度上赋予了农民工在城市的权利,特别是住房权。

议题:对暴行犯罪时代的主权和多重内部与国家间冲突的反思

提要:我将在以西方主导的人权话语与以前曾被殖民、半殖民或被侵略的国家,如中国、东盟国家和日本所拥护的绝对主权观之间的紧张对峙为背景,剖析缅甸的内部冲突和国际国家罪行。本文将以我30年来对国际政治和人权活动的第一手参与为基础进行反思分析。在日益相互关联的商业、冲突和(全球)社区中,国家主权相对于国家责任(指国家在其领土范围内对人类福祉的控制)的概念需要认真而紧迫地重新思考。在国家被确凿性地指控犯有暴行罪(特别是危害人类罪、战争罪和灭绝种族罪,这些罪行已被确定为法定罪行)的情况下,这一需要更为紧迫。面对目前联合国世界秩序中成员国犯下的暴行罪行,重新思考主权并不仅仅是一项学术工作,而是可能会给数以百万计处于冲突、战争和系统性压迫下的人类带去生死攸关命运结局的一项行为。列举联合国成员国缅甸涉及的一个案件为例,根据国际刑事法院检察官办公室的说法,该国“强行驱逐”了缅甸的70万罗辛亚穆斯林(前缅甸)。再比如,2017年秋天,印度每周以10万的速度进入另一个主权国家孟加拉国的邻国领土。此外,中缅边境不稳定也是缅甸国内冲突对中国造成的另一个永久性外溢影响,在长达1000英里的中缅边境沿线,缅甸武装部队-空军和陆军-参与了英国人所称的针对自治社区的“和平运动”,以对抗克钦基督徒、当地汉化思想团体“果敢”,以及其他在这个国家高地的部落。最后,我将尝试提供一种更加以人为中心的方法来解决当前冲突和国际国家罪行。

议题:国际关系中的冲突化解——中国古典视角

提要:国际关系的知识建构进入了一个前所未有的时代。越来越多的中国国际关系学者及其相关学科的学者对运用古代中国文化资源在全球治理创新之中感到兴趣。我将回顾全球正义的知识建构,并指出重新思考世界和全球正义创新的三个特征:去中心化和碎片化、国际秩序的转型、正在形成的中国国际关系叙事方式。在解决国际冲突方面,我们有可能从中华文明的丰富资源里发掘有用的东西,让它们与现今全球的讨论热点展开对话。这些包括:冲突的起源和因由、冲突和报复的和平结束,还有和解。这种对话可能带来水平更高的调停、维持和平、建设和平、斡旋、谈判、外交和仲裁。其中一个出发点,是在普世良知的基础上,建立全球伦理共识。我亦将讨论儒家的“良知”和“恻隐”观,还有汉传佛教的元素如何有助化解国际冲突。结尾部份将让各位思考中西学者集中研究并发展我们对于道德和理性的共同认识的可能性—西方与中国在这两方面都拥有伟大的传统。

议题:全球化、公平与正义语境下的中国劳动关系调整及其相关的社会创造

提要:中国社会的劳动关系的调整有其特定的时代背景,即从传统单位制向后单位制转型、计划经济向市场经济转型的深刻背景。劳动关系的矛盾主要体现在以下几个方面:一、国有企业改革过程中大量的下岗职工如何获得企业的劳动保障问题;二、在中国语境下的民营企业的崛起与劳动工人的日益增长的物质文化需要的矛盾;三、大量引进的外资企业的管理模式与中国本土劳动工人的行为方式的矛盾。过去中国在劳动关系的调整和劳动领域问题的治理上体现了以下几个特点:一、全球视野下的劳动合同法的修改和劳动用工方式的改革;二、以公平和正义为取向的劳动关系的包容性社会制度调整,包括劳动保障制度、最低工资制度、三方协商制度等;三、以社会创造拉动劳动关系良性调整,包括中国特色的非公企业工会建设和企业社会工作的EAP计划等。但劳动关系的调整和劳动问题的治理并非一帆风顺,今后中国劳动关系运行机制的改良还需要政府加大支持力度,工人群众积极参与,社会组织的蓬勃发展,社会环境的改良,劳资伦理的提升和企业文化的发展,以继续的全球化视野、公平正义的取向、包容性社会发展的基础、社会创造的拉动不断完善劳动关系和促进劳资团结。

议题:香港的城市治理:对社会公正的挑战和社会创造的新途径的产生

提要:本文重点关注香港土地重建和移置的社会空间政治,尤其是过去的二十年。通过对这一情况对当地居民日常生活影响的深入研究,以及对于城市规划干预的社会活动和抵制的分析,它对经济繁荣的主导意识形态进行了调查(Tang et al.,2011)。城市规划干预决定了殖民-全球的香港从零售到居住的物质和社会经济结构的转变。研究选择的焦点是街头市场的逐步消失,为超现代的豪华高层建筑创造空间。
街头市场提供了一个独特的视角来研究城市的政治话语(Lefebvre,1970),并分析高档化的纵向策略与城市抵制的横向策略之间的谈判过程。街头市场是公平和经济发展,集体社会性和可持续性,生活遗产,社会繁荣和社区凝聚力的晴雨表(Watson,2005; Stillerman 2006; Shepherd,2009;Marinelli 2018)。
本文将集中讨论香港九龙深水埗市场区域,分析两个主要因素:1)政治与政策、政策与实践之间的关系;2)空间塑造和人造在公共空间里集体认同建构中的重要作用。Apliu Street位于一个以战后众多公共房屋为特色的地区,以其小贩摊位和出售电子及电器元件的商店而闻名。然而,更广的地区逐渐见证了越来越多的正式,半正式和非正式的街头经济活动(即钦州街小贩市场也称为“庞宰”,通州街所谓的“临时市场”等),现在每天至少运行18个小时。在本文中,我使用了时空和政治意义上的分层,不平等和民主行动的概念,以解读深水埗市场区域的多层次身份。这种分析角度能使我们更好地了解相关公民社会组织相对于政府当局为“拯救市场”和创造另一条社会创造力的途径所发挥的作用。

数字互联和智造

——全球社会变迁和文化转型

(按出场先后顺序)

主持:常向群教授

常向群教授,全球中国研究院院长,全球中国智库主任。全球中国出版社总编。她也是英国伦敦大学学院荣誉教授,英国伦敦大学亚非学院专家教授级研究员,威斯敏斯特大学客座教授;中国北大、人大、复旦等多所大学客座或兼职教授、荣誉或特聘研究员。她在国内外参与和主持了20多项研究课题,发表的中英文著述近100项,约200余万字,代表作为《关系抑或礼尚往来:江村的互惠社会支持网和社会创造的研究》(2009–2010)。基于上述著作对中国一个村庄的详尽和详细的民族志研究,以及长期的跟踪和广泛的比较研究,她研发了一个有中国特色的互惠、互动、社会关系和社会网络的模型,借用并改造中国古典的和民间常用的“礼尚往来”用法,正在锤炼出一个基于“礼仪资本”的具有普适价值的分析概念——“互适”(recipropriety)。

议题:5G,工业4.0和全球化:所有的联结——以德国汽车工业为例

摘要:对“工业4.0”一词的引用首先出现在2011年德国汉诺威工业博览会上。工业4.0大体包括创新型信息和服务的发展和融合,关系到工业中通信科技的运用。工业4.0实际上指“第四次工业革命”。第一次工业革命肇始于英格兰地区蒸汽机的发展和大型制造机械的发明。第二次工业革命 的特征是电力的使用,使传送带和装配线的运用成为可能。第三次工业革命带来生产过程的自动化,通过电力、信息和通信科技的大规模使用。最终,网络技术的发展及其与数字生态系统的融合是第四次工业革命的基础——现在通常被称为工业4.0。德国工业目前是汽车和其他工业领域的世界领先者。与全球供应商一起,它不仅为德国工人,也为全世界数百万工人提供就业和繁荣。这使得工业和政治孤立主义的概念更显荒谬。我的简短演讲将集中讨论德国汽车行业将如何使用5G网络技术——物联网,这将成为工业全球化的终极关键。

沈小白博士,爱丁堡大学博士、中国社科院硕士学位、SRI理学士学位;爱丁堡大学商学院高级讲师。学术专业为科技创新研究,以前的研究方向包括发展中国家视角下对信息、通信技术和生物技术领域中的技术能力进行社会技术分析。目前研究方向更加关注公共产品的创新(如创意文化内容、开源软件、基础设施的信息通信技术、农业生物技术)和知识产权保护制度、标准以及政府政策法规的作用。作为首席调查员,她最近完成由艺术与人文研究基金会AHRC CREATe和中国数字版权及知识产权研究中心资助的中国数字版权与网络创意文化产业课题项目。她是的《中国之通往高科技的道路——以经济转型中的数字通信交换技术为例》(The Chinese Road to High Technology: the Case of Digital Telecommunications Switching Technology in the Economic Transition,帕尔格雷夫·麦克米兰出版社1999年)的作者。

议题:“民主”,“数字痕迹”和“数字人文”

摘要:本文采用英国退欧的案例,探询西方在当今的数字时代有多“民主”。通过以复杂性和动态性反映和理解公众,文章讨论了挑战与机遇,以及关于“数字痕迹”的各种问题,例如所有权,可访问性与治理。文章认为,中国已经建立了一个比西方更加集成的跨平台数字基础设施。然而,如何将数字数据转化为有意义的“数字痕迹”需要跨学科研究——“数字人文”。

张凤荣教授,东北师范大学教授,博士生导师。主要研究方向为产业经济学和经济社会学,在大数据社会治理、供应链、企业社会责任和女性地位方面均有较为深入的研究。目前主持国家社科基金《大数据社会治理精细化推进问题实证研究》(17BSH135)和教育部一般规划基金《新生代职业群体公民行为生成与基层社会治理机制创新实证研究》(15YJAZH107),发表SCI、SSCI、EI和ISSHP等论文50余篇,兼任中国现场统计学会常务理事、“中国妇女社会地位调查项目”吉林省特聘技术专家、吉林省科技项目评审专家等职务。

议题:大数据经济重塑全球经济格局——政策竞赛和规模经济驱动下的分化与整合

提要:大数据产业转型已成为世界经济的发展方向。大数据经济的可持续发展需依赖相对健全的数据生态和产业布局,在英国脱欧、美国退出许多国际组织的背景下,全球化的理论架构和全球社会的社会结构均受到了挑战,从大数据来探讨全球社会的社会变迁及其文化转型意义重大。数据化工业对传统劳动力的需求大幅降低,劳动力成本已不再是影响跨国企业对发展中国家投资布局的重要因素。大数据工业战略将使传统工业国重新获得制造业大国地位,美国已在人工智能领域独占鳌头,德国、法国、意大利、英国等传统欧洲工业国在大数据转型方面也进行了积极探索。数据经济政策竞赛将进一步加剧新兴经济体之间的发展分化,“数据鸿沟”和数据化基础设施缺口也将成为墨西哥等大数据经济发展水平总体滞后地区大数据转型的重要制约因素。已建立起先进工业体系的新兴经济体将成为数字经济的引领者,中国、韩国和印度在大数据发展方面最为典型。中国在很多领域已走在世界数字化发展的前列,除了推动互联网与传统商业形态的融合外,在先进制造业领域也已经开始积极探索。

议题:为什么其他国家害怕中国的IT革命?

提要:中国已确立了2025年成为世界领先技术大国的国家目标。中国在信息技术和大数据的先进应用方面已经取得了长足的进步。在这次发言中,我们将听到美国把遏制中国作为贸易战的一部分,试图限制中国对美国的出口,以应对中国技术的发展。特朗普总统和他的顾问们声称,中国公司经常窃取关键思想理念,不尊重国际贸易规则。会谈将转向两个主要的亚洲国家,印度和日本,讨论他们如何看待中国作为技术领先者的新地位。对于日本来说,中国是一个竞争对手,但日本许多知名企业在技术项目上与中国同行合作。印度担心,来自中国的竞争会扰乱其服务业,并敦促中国向更多的印度公司(如电信公司)开放市场。

议题:与中国方面学术出版的经验和在’一带一路’背景下国际出版合作的愿景

提要:近年来,中国经济的飞速增长以及中国经济对于世界的影响力是有目共睹的,但是很少有人能讲出’‘为什么’’。在西方很多专家谈论着中国及中国发展,但是我们很少看到中国专家在西方发声。在西方每个人都知道中国制造,但是很少有人了解5000年的中国文化。
只有当中国的历史、文化、社科、技术的卓越成果得到世界的理解和认可,中国会发展成国际强国。在这个巨大的国际潜力下,我们认为已经到了一个非常重要的时刻,来加强国际学术出版合作。帕斯国际有限公司旨在为中国出版社和作者提供一个国际平台,以便他们与中国境外的读者分享真知灼见。
帕斯国际出版有限公司在过去的8年里致力于与中国学者,研究人员,和出版商联合出版关于中国的图书和期刊。在过去的几年里,我们欣喜地看到,国际读者对中国学者研究成果的需求增长,而且这些学术研究能都更多的获得国际各领域专家的共鸣和认可。中国有着非常丰富的学术资源,在很多领域也有引领世界的研究的能力。我们发现在经济、文化、历史、政治、国际关系、建筑、艺术、宗教、科学、当代中国研究等领域学科有很显著的发展。
伴随着‘一带一路’战略的背景下,2018年我们出版了第一本以‘一带一路’为主题的期刊。这本期刊通过中国的世界视角来讨论在亚洲,非洲,欧洲以及中东国家和地区的发展,合作和增长。作者是来自中国‘一带一路’项目的各领域研究人员及专家。在合作过程中,我们发现中国正慢慢扩大并建立国际学术关系,我们已经能够幸运的看到中国正在逐渐显现它国际学术的重要角色。
讨论要点:

  • 过去8年和中国合作出版的经验
  • 在国际学术出版合作中的挑战和机会
  • 在’一带一路’战略背景下,中国学术出版的发展愿景

议题:将中国知识转化为全球:智力出版社中国图书馆案例

提要:在这个演讲中,我们将介绍支持智力中国图书馆的理念和精神,这是由Intellect于2015年推出的丛书系列,旨在出版当前中国艺术和文化学术成果的英文翻译。到目前为止,该系列已与中国主要机构合作,如北京电影学院,中国电影资料馆,上海社会科学院和中国科学院。通过这些合作,智力中国图书馆遇到了许多有关文化和语言翻译的理论和实践问题。什么是将中国学术翻译给西方读者,帮助他们参与当今国际辩论的最佳方式?在某种程度上,智力中国图书馆是一项试验实践,以研究为主导,并且其本身正在探索这些问题的答案。虽然中国学术的英文翻译数量一定会在未来增加,但是如何进行这种文化和知识外交也是一个迫切的话题,需要进行讨论和辩论才能在学术界和学术出版领域达成某种形式的共识。本演讲将分享智力中国图书馆迄今为止所面临的一些挑战,以及它为应对这些挑战而采取的解决方法,以推动进一步讨论。

议题:中国国际关系期刊的主题“云集”与知识生产

提要:改革开放以来,随着中国的发展和进步,中国与世界的关系越来越紧密,逐渐融入国际社会,中国外交更为积极主动、有所作为。在这一过程中,中国的国际关系研究及其期刊也得到了迅速发展壮大。目前中国内地已有60来种国际关系研究专业期刊。它们既关注国际关系的理论创新和规范研究,更注重从中国的角度出发观察和分析国际关系的现实变化,其国际传播和影响也在提升。然而,中国国际关系期刊的知识生产和传播仍面临许多问题和挑战。
在“中国知网”大数据平台的支持下,本项研究旨在通过汇集和分析最近十年(2008—2017)中国国际关系期刊的研究主题分布,一方面呈现中国国际关系研究议程和议题的变化,另一方面,通过比较分析《世界经济与政治》《外交评论》《国际问题研究》等代表性期刊及其发表文献的国内和国际引用等数据,进一步说明中国国际关系期刊的知识生产和传播的效用和影响,从一个特定的角度揭示中国的时代背景、学术体制与知识生产之间的关系,理解中国与世界之关系的进程和愿景。
总之,中国国际关系期刊的知识生产一直处于国际化与本土化的联系与张力之中,而如何更好地在中国与世界之间搭建平台、架设桥梁、促进相互之间的沟通和理解,是新时代赋予我们的真正使命和责任。

议题:新技术变革学术研究——中国知网的服务转型

提要:教育领域的数字革命正在全速发展,也正在影响着教室内外发生的一切。学术研究正在经历高科技“大变身”,因此它要求产品创新的积极互动。在中国,数字化学习正在崛起响着千家万户,影响着每一个人。伴随着互联网技术的出现,无论儿童还是成人都能够在任何时间任何地点学习和练习英语;有了新技术,学生们不仅能够从枯燥的教科书中学习,也能从视频和有趣的动画素材中学到东西。新趋势要求新的数字出版和服务。在过去的两年间,中国知网最关注如何通过新的数字出版模式和新一代的知识服务改进和提升用户体验;此外,工作流程的研究应该更加被关注,因为大多数研究工具都是在实际研究的某些环境下进行的。此报告将分享中国知网服务新技术的实际应用,深度分析开发背景以及实际研究环境的特点和用途。最后,该报告还将提出CNKI未来发展的基本框架,以及证明研究性服务产品的便利性,互通性,协作性,知识碎片和服务驱中心化的重要性。

议题:西方媒体如何报道中国,西方人怎样看待中国?

提要:中国在国际媒体上获得了大量报道。重点往往是政治问题,尤其是中国共产党和中国国家主席的作用。很多中国人觉得国际报道过度负面。然而,中国境内的记者经常抱怨他们的工作受到限制,因为当局阻止他们收集信息。在这次演讲中,我们将听到媒体在中国和其他地方的作用以及通过媒体进行思想斗争的观点和看法。

议题:大学国际化中隐藏的宝藏:中国研究图书馆

提要:十多年来,国际化一直是英国高等教育讨论的主题。高等教育国际化倡导将多元文化和全球维度纳入高等教育的目标和职能。这些讨论的重点是如何将多元文化和全球公民的精神融入课程,学术项目和制度文化,然而关于学术服务的潜在作用和贡献的讨论,如图书馆,档案馆和博物馆,尤其在教育研究的背景下有很大缺失。在本次演讲中,我使用案例研究的方法阐述,英国的中国研究图书馆的丰富内容和历史及其馆藏作为中国物质文化的体现,是内在于大学国际化的目标和过程的。我论证随着国际化理论的发展,以及国际化的价值和实践越来越深入到英国的高等教育,中国研究图书馆的作用和功能也正在从单一区域研究的焦点逐渐转变为主流学术领域。这种转变为中国研究图书馆提供了重振其在教育和研究中的核心作用的机会,并为大学的研究和教育国际化提供重要基础。中国研究图书馆不仅藏有书籍和文物,或许更重要的是,他们还拥有有知识,技能和经验的专家。若能抓住机会,大学的学术服务可以为大学国际化做出重大贡献,同时为宝贵的图书馆学术资源和专业机会提供新的令人兴奋的角色。

议题:跨越数字鸿沟:中国的网络参与和政府回应

提要:信息和通信技术(ICT)的广泛使用重塑了数字时代的公共领域,使数字民主和数字鸿沟成为改变政治生活的热点议题。互联网被广泛地认为,可以通过降低政治参与成本和放大“自下而上”的压力,提升政府对公民偏好的回应性,降低传统参与制度下政治影响力的不平等。然而,很少有研究实证地检验上述命题。本报告讨论了大数据时代中国克服数字鸿沟的可能路径。基于对海量在线公民 - 政府互动之行政数据的大数据分析,本报告为互联网扩展、网络参与对地方政府的政策回应性和再分配效应提供了新的微观机制。总之,中国政府对个体层面和政策层面的网络民意的回应性迅速增长,互联网驱动的日益普及的在线参与导致地方政府出台更多保护底层或弱势群体的再分配政策,弥补着数字鸿沟的影响。

议题:中国社会科学全球化与出版英汉双语的 “中国社会科学全球化系列丛书”

提要:作者根据在英国社会科学研究中国的二十多年经验,认为中国社会科学在一般社会科学研究中没有得到应有的重视。本发言将介绍中国社会科学及其研究机构,资源和方法,并已经出版的“中国社会科学的全球化”系列丛书的五卷为例解释为什么我们热衷于用英文和中文双语推动中国社会科学的全球化。
