YCW and Lau China Institute at King’s College London recently closed its second essay competition on the topic: “Cyber China.” Our first runner-up winner, Kyi Yeung Goh, delivered a fascinating essay on the growing state regulation of cyberspace and the emerging forms of critical discourse by Chinese netizens.
YCW invites you to participate in our inaugural annual survey, the YCW Pulse — the first of its kind to examine the views of the global community of young professionals engaged in China. We want to know your view of a rising China. The survey takes 5 to 10 minutes, and is available at the link.
We are delighted to announce the winner of the 2nd Lau-YCW Essay Competition… Chiu Wan Liu! This is a remarkable essay which captures a wider story of the gender norms, rural-urban divide and digital economy characteristic of modern-day China—one which we are honoured to share with the YCW network. Our warmest congratulations to Chiu Wan!
