[Lecture] Susan Jakes: China Behind the Headlines

Published by : Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy
As China’s economy has grown over the last three decades, it seems more and more that the eyes of the world are looking East. But many questions still remain to be answered. How much longer will China be able to sustain this rate of growth? How will the government respond to calls for greater respect for human rights and individual freedoms? As tensions increase in the South China Sea and other areas, how can the United States and China find mutually constructive ways to work together?

With a keen journalist’s eye honed over years of reporting on China, Jakes possesses unique insight on the strengths and challenges of modern China
and will address these questions and more in the lecture.
