Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 12:00 - 14:00 Add to Calendar
Venue: Asia Global Institute, MB 328, 3/F Main Building, HKU
Speaker(s): Yoshikazu Kato, Zhiwu Chen
Abstract

Whether China will democratize or more importantly how China will democratize has been one of the biggest questions for international relations in the 21st century. In this lecture, Yoshikazu Kato discussed the findings of his recently republished book – How Will China Democratize? In this major work, first published in Japan in 2015 and recently republished in Korea, Kato examined questions of Chinese democratization from three angles: internal politics, structural reform and external pressure and concluded that China would pursue its own method of democratization, one that is based on its own ideology, political system and development model.

The lecture was followed by a dialogue on how this framework could provide insights to the interpretation of China’s current and future political circumstances under the Xi Jinping administration, moderated by Zhiwu Chen, director of Asia Global Institute.
