The outcome of China’s leadership transition this fall is shaping up to be one of the most consequential  political developments in China since the beginning of the reform era.  There is an increasing sentiment among China watchers that China is fast approaching another critical inflection point in its political and economic development path. How the new leadership will respond to these challenges will shape the country’s ability to grapple with the many pressures, both domestic and international, associated with China’s rise.  At the same time, China’s economy and its Leninist political structure are showing signs of strain amid persistent scandals at the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party and the challenges of coping with China’s resurgence in a globalized world. Whether the new leadership chooses to reform or retrench, the implications for the global balance of power will be profound.

Biography: An accomplished Asian affairs specialist, Chris Johnson spent nearly two decades serving in the U.S. government’s intelligence and foreign affairs communities and has extensive experience analyzing and working in Asia on a diverse set of country-specific and transnational issues. He has frequently advised senior White House, cabinet, congressional, military, and foreign officials on the Chinese leadership and on Beijing’s foreign and security policies. Mr. Johnson worked as a senior China analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency, where he played a key role in the analytic support to policymakers during the 1996 Taiwan Strait missile crisis, the 1999 accidental bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, the downing of a U.S. reconnaissance aircraft on Hainan Island in 2001, and the SARS epidemic in 2003.
