Event description

Description

Xi Jinping has worked on crafting a unified national ideology, but so far not yielded the desired result: a broad-based societal consensus on China’s future course.

Research by the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) shows differing views within Chinese society on China’s developmental model and its global role. MERICS analyzed debates in Chinese social media and conducted a survey among predominantly urban Chinese netizens. Even though party-state propaganda played a dominant role, debates in online chat groups displayed a wide range of opinions despite censorship and repression of dissent.

Speakers:

The event will take place in the GPS classroom 3201 (directions). Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure. There will be signage to direct you from Pangea to GPS.

This event is part of the China Policy Turning Points series, sponsored by the UC San Diego International Institute and the 21st Century China Center.

Questions? Contact Samuel Tsoi.
