China’s Direction under Xi Jinping: What We Learned from the Party Congress


China is steadily sliding into an era of highly centralized one-man rule. The recently concluded 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party not only confirmed Xi Jinping as China's top leader for a third term, but packed the party?s senior ranks with his own close associates while sweeping out anyone not affiliated with him. Fordham Law Professor Carl Minzner will share his analysis of what we can expect for the next decade (or more) of Xi Jinping rule, based on the speeches and documents from the party congress and other recent messaging. He also will discuss what all this could mean for foreign scholars trying to conduct research in China and engage with peers there.
