Is China Inc. Conquering the World?In recent years, the rest of the world has portrayed Chinese companies as soldiers in an economic Trojan horse, quietly buying up the world in an attempt to challenge the prevailing order as well as gaining political capital overseas. Chinese companies have acquired natural resources and purchased sophisticated technologies from their business partners and competitors. Chinese firms have therefore become an indispensable part of China’s foreign policy making process. IDEAS seminar brings together a group of distinguished practitioners and academics who will explore the economic and political impact of China’s outward direct investments on Beijing’s foreign relations with other countries.
60 Years After the End of Korean WarThe Korean War was one of the defining conflicts of the Cold War in Asia, and the Korean peninsula remains divided along the border established at the end of the war. To mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, LSE IDEAS is organising a conference to discuss the conflict. Invited speakers will begin by exploring why the war ended the way it did, and what arrangements were made for the immediate post-war period. The discussion will then consider the legacy of the conflict for the region, and how many of the issues facing East Asia today can be traced to the end of the Korean War.
Lessons Learnt? Anne Applebaum discusses with Radosław SikorskiThe Polish Foreign Minister, Radosław Sikorski, joined Anne Applebaum and her students to discuss whether and how the Polish transition experiences from Communism to capitalist liberal democracy can be exported. The seminar formed the concluding one in a series on the History of the Soviet Union and of the Post-Soviet Transition.
