"Chinese Economic Statecraft" - William Norris, CWP Fellow
Nov 10, 2010 · 12:15 p.m.– 1:45 p.m. · Robertson Hall, Bowl 2
William Norris is a China and the World Fellow and specializes in the confluence of economics and security with a particular focus on the role of economics in contemporary Chinese grand strategy. For his lecture, he will discuss his research based on his dissertation that builds a middle-range theory of economic statecraft that provides both a micro-level theory explaining how states use firms to pursue their strategic goals as well as a macro-level theory explaining the conditions under which economic statecraft is likely to succeed. Will received an A.B. from Princeton University, summa cum laude, in 1999 and received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010. He has spent significant time abroad studying Chinese and economics. He is in residence at Princeton University.
This talk is sponsored by the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program of the Woodrow Wilson School whose mission is to encourage research on China’s foreign relations and China within the international relations context.
