Getting China Wrong: Xi Jinping’s Rise and Future of China-West Relations

Presented by Jing Sun, associate professor of political science

With China’s national legislature lifting presidential term limit, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has already been viewed by many as the most powerful man in the world, is set to rule the country indefinitely. This lecture will examine China’s democratic backsliding, and what this means to the West as it navigates a proper strategy in dealing with this forthcoming superpower.
