Elizabeth C. Economy - The Third Revolution: XI Jinping and the New Chinese State

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 3, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Economy’s examination of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s first five years in office traces his efforts to roll back the liberal reforms of his predecessors at home while continuing to advance China’s ambitions on the global stage. Exploring this paradox in detail, Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director of Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, profiles a nation becoming more insular and authoritarian as it cracks down on corruption, tightens state control over the internet, and reforms state-owned enterprises, while positioning itself for a more expansive role abroad. Showing that Xi’s zealous globalization gives the U.S. an opportunity to encourage China’s contribution to global public goods, Economy also warns that Xi’s re-assertion of state power over Chinese society calls for the U.S. to be proactive in countering the influence of an illiberal power within a liberal world order.
