2015 Plenary 4
: Broken China: Handle with Care

From the high seas to cyberspace, China’s tendency to disrupt is creating tension around the globe. How do we deal with a China that is experiencing its own difficulties, including declining economic growth, a stormy shift into a maritime-based power, and continual territorial disputes with its neighbors? The panel discussed the issues that arise from a nation that is inextricably linked to every major economy but is itself starting to show serious cracks in its facade. Panelists closed with thoughtful advice for Chinese leadership as the nation settles into its role as an influence on the global order, and the responsibilities they bear towards its own citizens.
