China has become the engine of global growth and represents a major shift in the balance of power. On the one hand, we have continuously focused on the nature of China's rise and its economic relations with the rest of the world. On the other hand, China has observed with great interest Western governance experiences such as the concept of "Big Society" and to analyse its plausibility within the country. This seminar will give fresh views on such topics from the perspectives of the Chinese government and the Communist Party.
Dr. Liu Dong is a lecturer at the Chinese Communist Central Party School.
