Event Details

China's future is arguably the most consequential question in global affairs. Having enjoyed unprecedented levels of growth, China is at a critical juncture in the development of its economy, society, polity, national security, and international relations. The direction the nation takes at this turning point will determine whether it stalls or continues to develop and prosper.

David Shambaugh from The Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University will present on his recently published book, China's Future (2016). He argues that the potential pathways are numerous and depend on key decisions yet to be made by China's leaders, different pressures from within Chinese society, as well as actions taken by other nations.

The book will be available for purchase on-site.
