Anton Malkin is an Assistant Professor at Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen.
Anton received his PhD in Global Governance in 2016 from the Balsillie School of International Affairs (Wilfrid Laurier University), with a specialization in international political economy. His thesis examined the role of foreign financial institutions in China’s financial markets and economic reforms more broadly, between 1990 and 2014.
Since defending his dissertation, he worked at the Centre for International Governance Innovation–an international affairs and global governance think tank in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. His worked focused on China’s integration into the global intangible economy (referring to intellectual property rights, technology standards, and data) and on multinational corporations’ role in China’s technological catch-up in the information and communication technology sector.
In addition to his focus on multinational firms and China’s domestic political economy, Anton’s published work has also examined broader themes in global governance and international political economy, including: the role of emergent economies in global financial governance; China’s efforts to reform the global monetary system; and shifting power relations between the United States and its trading partners.
