China abolished term limits for the presidency in March 2018. Carl Minzner, professor of law at Fordham University, argues that this is only the latest in a long range of steps in the end of China’s reform era.
YCW NY is pleased to welcome Professor Minzner to discuss the recent changes in the Chinese political sphere, and his new book describing how the core factors that characterized China’s reform era–political stability, ideological openness, and rapid economic growth–are unraveling.
In End of an Era: How China’s Authoritarian Revival is Undermining Its Rise, Professor Minzner argues that Xi Jinping’s increasingly autocratic rule is undermining the economic and social progress achieved in China since the Deng Xiaoping era. Please join us for this very timely discussion.
We invite Carl Minzner, Professor of Law at Fordham University to discuss.
