Politics of nanotechnology innovation in Asia-Pacific: Tiny technology meets transnational governance

Kirsten Rodine-Hardy
Nanotechnology, the tiny technology that allows matter to be manipulated at the atomic level, has entered the complex global market. Over 60 countries created new nanotechnology programs, yet few countries created nanotechnology regulations. How have these patterns in nanotechnology innovation emerged? This paper analyses how politics, through transnational networks and national regimes, shape nano innovation in the Asia-Pacific region.

Cascades of crises: Great power collaboration in prevention

John Braithwaite
The greatest danger to great powers is not each other; it is crises enabled by failures to collaborate with each other to counter threats from third sources. Climate crises, economic crises, and security crises are the big three threats to the survival of our grandchildren. These crisis risks are increasingly interrelated. The best way to prevent tomorrow’s crises of all three kinds is to prevent today’s crises of all three kinds. 10 points are advanced on how global civil society might encourage this.

Pursuing the Chinese Dream: Arab entrepreneurs in East China

Meizhen Wen
Drawing on twelve months fieldwork from November 2015 to December 2016 and two follow-up research trips in 2017 November and 2019 February, this project examines Arab entrepreneurs’ lives and businesses in China. I will show how Arab entrepreneurs establish cross-cultural trust with their Chinese partners to maintain a transnational trading system, and outline what their social and business interactions tell us about migrant entrepreneurship and interracial dynamics in China. In telling the stories of these Arab residents in China, I engage with ongoing debates concerning migrant entrepreneurial communities in China, the informal economy and globalization more broadly.

The trials of a liberal exemplar: Chu Anping and The Observer in history and memory

William Sima
This dissertation examines how Chu Anping and The Observer have been used to criticize the destruction of intellectual autonomy by the CCP after 1949, and the party’s ongoing circumscription of historical inquiry today. While engaging with by now familiar intellectual polemics in the PRC since 1989 — especially those between the ‘Liberals’ (自由派) and ‘New Left’ (新左派) — I show how intellectual debate has more specifically influenced the production of modern history. I focus especially on the historical narrative of a ‘liberal tradition’ (自由主义传统) in late-Qing and Republican China, and Chu Anping’s place within this purported tradition, showing how his later defiance of the CCP, along with ongoing censorship of Chu’s post-1949 career, has coloured the reception of his Observer writings and the history of modern ‘liberalism’ more broadly.

How effective are police ‘hacks’ of 'Darknet' opioid markets

Rod Broadhurst, Matt Ball and Harry Trivedi
This seminar will examine the impact of transnational police Operation SaboTOR (March 2019) on opioid supply on Darknet Markets. Such operations attempt to undermine trust among illicit market actors. Previous research shows displacement to new or non-targeted Darknet Markets is likely rather than deterrence. We observe the impact of SaboTOR on the availability of opioids, in particular fentanyl and the countermeasures used by market vendors.
