The Ontario Chapter’s inaugural event will feature a presentation by Dr. Alfred L. Chan, Department of Political Science, Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario, on “The Future of China.” The theme of Dr. Chan’s presentation will be:
Rapid and dramatic changes over the last couple of decades have brought about a fundamental transformation in China that took Europe centuries to complete. Confronted by the multiple and daunting challenges unleashed by this process, will the Chinese Communist Party be able to rise to the occasion, or will it become out-dated and irrelevant? The discussion will focus on the possible trajectory and scenarios of change in the future.
The event will be held at the Centre for Social Innovation in downtown Toronto. A light breakfast will be provided.
