Chapter 33: Chinese regionalism

Michael Dunford and Weidong Liu


In this chapter Chinese regionalism is examined from two perspectives. First, accounts of China’s system of national and territorial governance, of China’s territorial development and of the position of minorities, questions of autonomy and regional conflict explore sub-national economic, political and cultural variation, the normative interests of sub-national entities and the dialectic of centralization and decentralization within China. Second, China’s role in Eurasian regionalism is examined as China seeks to establish shared interests, to foster closer economic and political co-operation with its neighbours and to promote a new model of ‘inclusive globalization’.
