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 dealt with the development of international banking in China between the 1880s and the end of the First World War.
Ghassan's current research continues to be concerned 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.
At the same time, he has started to broaden his research to include Japan and has become especially interested in intra-Asian financial connections between China and Japan and the comparative study of the role of foreign banks in the modern Chinese and Japanese economies.
