Topic: China rising: is that a dragon or a panda at the door, honey?

Presenter: Professor Richard Cullen - Visiting Professor - The University of Hong Kong

The People's Republic of China (PRC) has proved itself, especially over the last 30 years, to be the most successful modern One Party State the world has ever seen. It is also the largest such State ever. It is already a significant regional political power which is now listened to around the world. This seminar seeks to explain some of the key factors which have shaped the development of the China of today. It also aims to consider both the serious challenges facing the PRC - and the ways in which China may operate on the world stage over coming decades. 

All welcome, no RSVP required.
