How Activism and the Media Can Thrive in China

Wednesday August 8, 2018 06:30 PM EDT
Cost: $10 Council Members - $20 Non-Members

From the venue:

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.
