Learn how China’s politics and economy have changed since the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and the implication of these domestic changes for US-China Relations. Dr. Mary Gallagher will discuss the increased centralization of political power by China’s leader, Xi Jinping; the increased penetration of the Communist Party in media, society, and the private sector; and China’s increased confidence in its foreign policy and diplomacy.
