Will Hutton, The Work Foundation, will give a public lecture on China's rise in the global era, on Wednesday 3 May at LSE.
China is a giant with feet of clay. The easy part of the reform programme has happened and it gets more difficult from now on. The Communist Party meanwhile is suffering a crisis of identity and legitimacy. What is the outlook for China, Asia and the world as the party wrestles with China's economic and social problems?
Will Hutton is chief executive of The Work Foundation and a weekly columnist for The Observer.
Professor David Held, LSE, will chair this event.
Writing on the Wall: China's rise in the global era on Wednesday 3 May 2006 on 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
