Dr Jianyong Yue earned his PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2011. Following his graduation, he embarked on a journey of teaching Chinese politics and development, contributing his expertise to both King's College London and LSE.
Prior to commencing his PhD research at LSE, Dr Yue gained invaluable experience working in various capacities in China's large state-owned enterprises, media agencies, and multinational corporations.
Since 1999, Dr Yue has been actively engaged in discussions revolving around China's politics, political economy, and globalisation-driven development. His extensive body of work includes numerous publications in esteemed academic and policy journals in both China and the West.
While his research primarily focuses on China, Dr. Yue consistently tackles contemporary issues with global significance, contributing to discussions on global peace and development.
In January 2018, Dr Yue published his first book, "China's Rise in the Age of Globalization: Myth or Reality?" through Palgrave McMillan. This interdisciplinary work combines comparative politics, political economy, international relations, economic and international history, IPE, and development studies to offer a comprehensive analysis.
His most recent article, "The Limits to China's Peaceful Rise—Deep Integration and a New Cold War," published by Global Policy in 2022, challenges the prevailing perspective that China's economic ascent threatens to upend the liberal international order. Dr Yue highlights the irony that China's entanglement in semi-peripheral development, rather than its economic and technological "rise," has inevitably led to the resurgence of great power rivalry and the emergence of a new Cold War.
His second book about China's rise and decline is scheduled to be published by Palgrave Macmillan in the first half of 2024.
