Upcoming CEFC Seminar: “The Mediterranean Model: Autonomous cities, trading networks and law merchant in Medieval Europe and in East Asia”

by Francois Gipouloux (National Centre for Scientific Research)

Economic reforms and opening-up have favoured a new wave of urbanisation and strengthened the international function of China’s great coastal cities. In other words, China is split from its continentality by a highly attractive maritime area. This shift towards the sea is the reactivation of a very ancient maritime tradition. Does it portend the formation of an Asian Mediterranean, with great metropolises like Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, acting as platforms for global flows ?
