Dr Anastas Vangeli

“Normative Shift in the West? European and American Economic Policy Responses to Global China and the Future of the Liberal Economic Order”

Anastas Vangeli presented an advanced research proposal that deals with the normative shifts in the West, especially the US and the EU, that have happened as a reaction to the rise of global China. In his future work he intends to investigate to what extent this shift  only concerns China and to what extent it has real paradigmatic consequences  when it comes to rethinking the global economy.

“The Dynamics of Construction of the Responsible Consumer: A Comparison of Gambling Addiction in China and France”

Thomas Amadieu presented an ongoing research project focusing on the social consequences of the growing market of gambling industries by comparison of two different models of gambling (France and China).
