Ghassan Moazzin

Ghassan Moazzin is a JSPS International Research Fellow at the Graduate School of Economics, The University of Tokyo. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 2017. His dissertation was titled "Networks of Capital: German Bankers and the Financial Internationalisation of China (1885-1919)" and used the case study of the German Deutsch-Asiatische Bank to show how the interaction between foreign bankers and Chinese officials, bankers and entrepreneurs led to the rapid internationalisation of Chinese finance in the two and a half decades before the First World War.

Ghassan’s current research project deals with the rise of international banking and finance in modern China, China’s financial internationalisation, and its financial integration into the first global economy during the 19th and 20th centuries. A particular focus of his postdoctoral research project is the comparative study of the role of foreign banks in the modern Chinese and Japanese economies.
