How Activism and the Media Can Thrive in China

Throughout its checkered history, the Communist Party of the People’s Republic of China has a shown a distaste for dissent. Acting under the pretense of protecting China’s sovereignty, regulators have sanctioned journalists, censored social media platforms, and deployed the Great Firewall to control and monitor internet access across the entire country. Despite the censor’s best efforts, activism, free speech and opposition still thrive in the world’s largest economy. Learn from top experts on Chinese media, law and civil society how activism survives and occasionally even thrives in China. The discussion will also approach the current relationship between the White House and the media.
Featuring:

  • Maria Repnikova, Director, Center for Global Information Studies
  • Sida Liu, Fellow, The American Bar Foundation
  • Bin Xu, Assistant Professor of Sociology Emory University
