Lecture | Will China Democratize? Contending Forces in a Changing China (livestream)


China has played a growing role on the international stage and increasingly challenges the liberal international order. Despite the country's growing wealth, the regime and much of the population remain hostile to constitutional democracy domestically and to human rights internationally. In this 10-session seminar, Teng Biao and Andrew Nathan will analyze the forces and institutions that influence the possibilities for eventual democratic change, including the Party-state structure, ideology and values, the legal system, social change, the economy, ethnic minorities, and geopolitics. This is the first talk in a 10-week seminar.
