"China Goes Global," Academic Lecture

Event Date/Time

Jan 16, 2014
9:30 am

Description

The Darien Community Association (DCA)’s 2014 Academic Lecture Series on Global Issues - "China Changes the Guard" - continues on January 16th at 10:00am. Presenter David Shambaugh is an internationally recognized authority on contemporary China affairs, U.S China foreign relations, military and security issues, and international politics and security in the Asia Pacific region. His topic "China Goes Global" will take an in-depth look at China's dramatic rise, its strengths and the facets of its impact on neighbors and the rest of the world. Andrew Nathan in "Capsule Review" writes in reviewing his recent book: "Shambaugh provides a masterful survey of China's presence on the world scene, showing that in every field - diplomatic, economic, military, and cultural - Beijing's influence, although growing, remains limited."

Dr. Shambaugh is a professor of Political Science and International Affairs and founding Director of the China Policy Program at the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University. He is also a Non Resident Senior Fellow in Foreign Policy Studies Program and Center for Northeast Asia Policy Studies at the Brookings Institute. He is the recipient of research grants from Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Smith Richardson Foundation, German Marshall Foundation, British Academy, U.S. National Academy of Science, and other philanthropic bodies and a visiting professor at many universities. A frequent commentator to the international media, he serves on a number of editorial boards, and has been a consultant to various governments, research institutions, foundations, and private corporations.

The subsequent Academic Lecture Series’ Thursday morning lectures include "The Digital Dragon - China's Role in Cyberspace" on January 23rd, and "China's Maritime Neighbors" on January 30th. All morning lectures are held at 10:00am; some single tickets will be available at the door for $25. An evening lecture, "The New Guard's Agenda: U.S.-China relations" will be held on Monday, January 27th at 8:00pm, preceded by a 7:30pm reception. Tickets for the evening lecture and reception are $25, also available at the door. The DCA is located at 274 Middlesex Road in Darien. To be added to the email and mailing list for future Academic Lecture Series events, please send your email and mailing address to info@dariendca.org.
