Joint Workshop of the King's College London and the Freie Universität Berlin
FU and KCL experts from the fields of legal-political studies (including legal and political philosophy), Chinese studies, history and political science will explore the extent and significance of recent developments in the legal and political field under the Xi administration.
Over the past two decades, civil engagement, charitable giving, labour activism, women’s rights advocacy, environmental advocacy, independent and investigative journalism, and human rights advocacy have emerged as important forces in China. They all seek participation and representation. At the same time, particularly starting with the new administration in 2012/2013, new regulations pose more and more limitations to civil society. Where is China’s society under Xi Jinping heading? Scholars from King’s College London, Freie Universität Berlin and other Universities will discuss these questions from multidisciplinary perspectives.
