The Chinese Communist Party’s 19th Congress, which opened in Beijing October 18, stands out as a potential watershed event for contemporary world history.
Will China’s current leader, Xi Jinping, be able to utilize this meeting to further consolidate his power? To what degree will it lead to pro-nounced shifts in China’s domestic politics and foreign policy?
We will take up these pressing questions, leading a discussion of where China now stands and what is likely to unfold there in the coming years.
