Healing the Achilles Heel: the Politics of China's Banking Reform since 1997 (2010–2012)

Reforming the dysfunctional banking industry and its regulatory system forms a critical part of China's effort to establish a modern financial infrastructure to sustain its economic growth. Employing an institutionally-informed statist framework in a transition context, this project employs an innovative mutual-dependency model which interlinks the party-state and key regulatory agencies and explores the political and institutional dynamics that have shaped the reform process. By doing so, this project sheds lights on the current debates in relation to the emergent regulatory state in China in the context of economic transition and China s global engagement.
