Sino-US Trade War
Economic and Political Studies Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 31st December 2018
Economic and Political Studies (EPS), an ESCI and Scopus listed journal hosted by Renmin University of China and published by Taylor & Francis Group, is calling for papers for a special issue on “Sino-US Trade War”.
After Trump took office in 2017, the US pulled out of the re-negotiation of NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. The year 2018 began with a new series of trade conflicts between the US and its trading partners, especially with China. In the middle of 2018, the US and China have embarked upon a full-scale trade war. The looming trade war between the two countries and other changes in US policy on China may have unexpected impacts on the Sino-US relations. The series of tariffs imposed by the world’s two biggest economies will also affect the global economy. Economic and Political Studies now invites contributions to a new special issue on “Sino-US Trade War”. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Economic costs and benefits of trade war to both the US and China
- Will China become another Japan?
- The real trade deficit of the US against China
- The relationship between the US mid-term election and trade war
- The US negotiation strategy of trade agreements
- Possibility of the escalation from a trade war to a hot war
- Political and economic effects on both domestic and foreign policy
- The effectiveness of trade barriers
- The Future of WTO
The deadline for submission is 31 December 2018.
Papers should be submitted to the Special Issue Editor Terence Tai Leung Chong <email@example.com> and at the same time through the Editorial Manager System. The detailed submission guideline and reference style are available here.
It is highly appreciated if you could kindly forward this Call for Papers to friends, colleagues and other people whom you think may have an interest in this topic. For any enquiries please contact the Editorial Office at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
