China's Political Worldview and Chinese Exceptionalism

Online public event

Speakers:

Benjamin Ho, Assistant Professor at the China Programme in the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Beverley Loke, Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Exeter.

Joseph Chinyong Liow, Tan Kah Kee Professor in Comparative and International Politics, and Dean at the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Chair:

Professor William A Callahan, Professor of International Relations, LSE

The ongoing global coronavirus pandemic has generated considerable worldwide debate concerning China's global leadership and international contribution. Discussing Benjamin Ho's new book, China's Political Worldview and Chinese Exceptionalism, the event will explore how China is currently engaged in a competition with the United States to demonstrate its superiority over the latter.

Dr Ho argues what is at work in this competition is the sense of Chinese exceptionalism, as Beijing claims to be good and better than the U.S. and the West. How this is being played out in international politics will have significant implications for the future of global order and international leadership.

This online public event is free and open to all but pre-registration is required. Registation for this event on Zoom will open after 10am on Tuesday 5 October.
