China Study Student Group: Voices and Analysis from the Field
This study group, held on six Fridays 11am-12pm to accommodate the widest range of time zones globally, engages HKS degree students to understand China’s rise and its role in the world moving forward. Led by Professors Tony Saich and Edward Cunningham, who leverage a combined 75 years of experience working in and with China, the program will also draw on the expertise of a range of HKS Ash Center Asia fellows from business, media, and policy analysis. Our goal is to have students leave the group with a more nuanced and rigorous framework for examining China’s political and economic systems, but also a set of key questions around China’s future integration – or disintegration – with the world.
Because the program depends upon interactive discussions and will be capped at 20 students, we particularly encourage those who enjoy active participation and lively debate to sign up on a first-come, first-served basis for each session. Readings will be assigned.
