Discussion Event: China’s Rise and its Role in the 20s, Dt.-Chin. Mediennetzwerk e.V., Berlin (2021-08-28)


While the whole world is still staring at Covid-19 numbers and rules, China has continued to extend its global influence politically, militarily, and economically. Even faster than expected China will surpass the US to become the world’s largest economy – one with authoritarian and communist characteristics.

How has the global balance of power shifted in the past two years? What does this mean for China’s neighbouring countries? What are the new roles of China, the US, and the European liberal democracies on the world stage? We would like to invite you to join a discussion about these topics – and also to find out how different political and cultural backgrounds contribute to highly polarised views about China’s growing global influence.

The event will take place in Berlin, with discussants joining from China and Germany via video conference. If you would like to take part – In person or via video conference –, please send a short email to Haifen NAN (haifen.nan@zhongde-media.net) until Friday, 20th August 2021.
