    China’s Politic Economy, Comparative Authoritarianism and International Politic Economy

     

    Chia-chi Cheng is a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate Institute of East Asian Studies at National Chengchi University, Taiwan, Republic of China. My research interests are China’s Politic Economy, Comparative Authoritarianism and International Politic Economy. Now, I have more interests on the government-business relationship in China and put more attention on my dissertation titled as Chinese State Capitalism: a Study on Privately Owned National Champions. In this dissertation, the main question I ask is: Why do privately owned national champions appear the market under Chinese state capitalism? My dissertation addresses the dynamic interaction between the local governments and privately owned national champions, and explains the change in the power structure. This study is expected to provide a dynamic explanation of the institutional changes in China's state capitalist system, to make up for the lack of research on the development and impact of privately owned national champions in the past, and to look for a different viewpoint to observe this topic.

    I am writing my dissertation on the topic of the relationships after 1997 between China and Hong Kong. Through the historical institutionalism as a research approach, and the introduction of power stability and security interests of the case comparison, I try to explain how the CCP governances Hong Kong in the different periods and events. And follow construct a new analytical framework for exploring the development of China-HongKong relations. The findings are expected to contribute to the understanding of the interaction between China and Hong Kong in recent years. It can also help clarify how China adjusts its interpretation and governance strategy of "one country, two systems" and its impact on the future development of cross-strait relations.

    Yen-chen Tang is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow of Institute of Political Science at Academia Sinica. Yen-chen received her PhD in Political Science from the National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 2014. Her research interests include comparative politics, democratization, electoral behavior, and political communication. Her dissertation “Political Responses to Distrust in Institutions: A Perspective from East Asia” analyzed from a comparative perspective the democratization processes in Southeast and East Asia. In the study she dealt with the forms of political behavior that emerge in response to disappointment with the political environment as popular trust in institutions declines. Her findings show that institutional trust has a clear influence on political responses. In liberal democracies, citizens with low levels of institutional trust tend towards political apathy. Also, in electoral democracies, citizens with low institutional trust tend to exercise “voice” more often. The dissertation won the “Ministry of Science and Technology Doctoral Dissertation Award”. For her future research she is planning a project titled “Democratic Responsibility Deficits and Political Responses of East Asian People”. Her research questions are: “to what extent will the democratic responsibility of the people affect their political response?” and “Does the Democracy responsibility deficit affect the way people choose positive or negative political responses?”
