Event description

Description

Since a landmark joint investigation by Fairfax Media and Four Corners in June 2017, the Australian public has become aware of the Chinese Communist Party’s efforts to influence Australia through political donations, clandestine operations and intimidation.

How are Australian democratic values affected and what grassroots changes are taking place globally to oppose such influence? A Panel Discussion by experts, observers and insiders from the Chinese community will explore in detail what are the obvious and less apparent consequences of the infiltration from Beijing.

The panel of speakers includes:

Dr Feng Chongyi, Associate Professor in China Studies, University of Technology, Sydney, and adjunct Professor of History, Nankai University, Tianjin. Dr. Feng's current research focuses on intellectual and political development in modern and contemporary China.
