Austin Strange | 郝思诚

Welcome! I am an assistant professor of international relations in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Hong Kong. During 2021 I am also a postdoctoral fellow in the Columbia-Harvard China and the World Program.

I research and teach Chinese foreign policy and international political economy. My first research agenda investigates the aims and impacts of contemporary China’s overseas development finance. With excellent colleagues, I am writing a book for Cambridge University Press on China’s overseas development program. Currently I am also researching shifts in China’s approach to global development and influence in developing countries since 1949. My second research agenda examines the domestic sources of trade and diplomacy across Chinese history.

Previously I received a Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University and studied at Zhejiang University (M.A.) and the College of William & Mary (B.A.).
