Call for papers for the 2019-2020 Second International Annual Symposium
Institute for Research on Portuguese-Speaking Countries
City University of Macau

Deadline 21st October 2019

The Portuguese-speaking Small Island States and China: From sporadic bilateral exchanges to a comprehensive multilateral platform of mutual development cooperation.

This Second International Annual Symposium is part of the double celebration activities: 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 20th anniversary of Macau's retrocession to Chinese sovereignty.

The Portuguese-speaking Small Island Developing States (PSIDS), namely Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor-Leste, have been overlooked in development studies research literature. However, they all share three unique characteristics: firstly, they are Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and therefore vulnerable, remote and with access to limited resources; secondly, they have Portuguese as their official language, due to their colonial past; and, thirdly, they obtained independence in 1975 from Portugal. The organizers also wish to extend this international symposium to Guinea-Bissau, bearing in mind the strong historic bonds with Cabo Verde.

The focus of this second international annual symposium will be assessing the achievements and challenges faced by the PSIDS after close to fifty years of independence, as well as the dynamics of their relationship with China. The main output of the symposium will be the publication of a second book, as result of conference proceedings, for a collection of eight books that will be devoted to assessing the relationship between the Portuguese-speaking countries and China.

This international symposium provides an opportunity for all those interested in PSIDS to discuss their research and to exchange ideas. Researchers are invited to submit both empirical and theoretical papers that are broadly consistent with the workshop’s special topic. Case studies are particularly encouraged. Since the City University of Macau already organized a symposium dedicated to Timor-Leste in the last quarter of 2018, priority in the selection of the papers will be given to those focusing on Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and on São Tomé and Príncipe.

The international symposium is open to all involved in these research areas, including both young and experienced researchers, post-doctoral researchers, Ph.D. students, and professionals from business, government and nongovernmental institutions. Papers from all the following fields, in their broad meaning, may be submitted:

  • Social, political and economic development processes of the PSIDS since their independence;
  • The PSIDS: definition, commonalities, and specificities;
  • The PSIDS: their relevance;
  • Their political systems fifty years on;
  • Their economic structures fifty years on;
  • Their social achievements fifty years after;
  • Their international relations and their regional integration fifty years after;
  • Their challenges and opportunities moving forward;
  • Comparative analysis between the three countries; and
  • The relationship of these countries with China.
