Speaker(s): Professor Arne Westad
Chair: Professor Michael Cox

Recorded on 1 November 2012 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Arne Westad argues that China’s role in international affairs over the past 250 years has been determined by the country’s restless irresolution and its immense capacity for change. In this lecture he will discuss the significance of China’s past for its behaviour in international affairs today.

Arne Westad is director of LSE IDEAS.
