Find out more about GPI China


The rise of China as a major continental power is increasingly challenging the Western-dominated international order; a challenge that brings into question the whole rule-based system and its institutional framework. Further, the Chinese variation on Asian state-led development – variously termed state capitalism and capitalism with Chinese characteristics – poses significant challenges to neoliberalism, already significantly discredited by the GFC. GPI’s long-term focus on China emphasises both the distinctiveness of its domestic economic, political and  social forms, its impact on the Asian regional and global systems, and the nature of its approach to regional integration and international relations. Areas of focus of GPI China include the rebalancing of the economy, the development of China’s financial sector, currency management and  internationalisation, rural credit, central bank policy, migration, China’s role in East Asian integration, relations with Russia and the USA, and its role in new institutions such as the AIIB, NDB, CMIM and AMRO, among other areas of research.

The GPI’s work on China and research activities in China are headed by GPI Senior Research Fellow Michele Geraci, who is based in China and speaks fluent Mandarin. To contact Michele Geraci, please email: Alternatively, please visit:
