China Tomorrow: Democracy or Dictatorship 

Title

China Tomorrow: Democracy or Dictatorship

Abstract

Influenced by China’s traditional culture and even more so by the Chinese Communist Party’s Soviet ideology, institutions, and modus operandi, most Chinese citizens today are not pushing for democracy, choosing security, stability and prosperity over political freedoms and participation. This presentation, by political science Professor Jean-Pierre Cabestan of Hong Kong Baptist University, will make a compelling case for the continuing strength of China’s one-party system.
