Jacques deLisle on Dynamic Growth, Stability, and Social Change in China
Q&A with Jacques deLisle
What effect will China's environmental, socio-economic, and governance problems have on its foreign policy?
Charles Freeman, the Freeman Chair in China Studies at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and former managing director of the China Alliance, and Jacques deLisle, the Stephen A. Cozen professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania, and director of the Asia Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, joined us for a discussion on the dynamic growth and change occurring within China. There are growing socio-economic divides both among and between rural and urban-dwellers. What role does this play in China's long-term stability? How is the Chinese government addressing issues like migration, healthcare, environmental degradation and corruption? How might these changes within China affect its relationship with the U.S. and the international community?
