Joint the World Affairs Council for February’s Member-to-Member Lunch: Understanding China’s Global Ambitions.
What role do citizens play in motivating their countries national interests? How can we understand
the “Chinese Dream” through a 1.3 billion person body politic? How can individual life
stories help us understand the larger journey of a civilization?
Join the World Affairs Council for lunch with Scott Tong, who moved to Shanghai to open the
NPR affiliated Marketplace’s first bureau in China, where he reconnected with his estranged
family. He discovered rich accounts of his relatives’ lives extending back over five generations,
spanning the fall of the Qing dynasty to the reforms under Deng Xiaoping. Scott will guide us
in exploring current questions about China’s civil society and its role in regional security, international
law, and globalization.
