Imogen T. Liu has written a blog post on Chinese state capital in Serbia for the Developing Economics state capitalism series. Imogen argues that the penetration of Chinese state capital in Serbia, notably through infrastructure, contributes to the stabilisation of the incumbent political regime and the spread of Chinese accumulation logics abroad. Her findings are based on recent fieldwork conducted in Serbia.

Policy paper for the IFSWF

Adam D. Dixon and Imogen T. Liu discuss the future of best practice for sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) as one of three official partners of the 2019 Annual Review of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF).

Adam and Imogen were invited to contribute a policy piece for the IFSWF Annual Review, which details the key trends and future directions of SWF practice each year. Titled “The Santiago Principles 2.0: Advancing the Agenda”, the article is a critical assessment of the Santiago Principles, designed to promote good governance, accountability, transparency and investment practices, and that is the cornerstone of the IFSWF.

Maastricht University has been recognised as an official partner of the 2019 Annual Review, together with PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Sovereign Investment Lab at Bocconi University.
