Many perceive China as arriving at a critical juncture in its political, economic and social maturation. It strives to avoid the “middle income trap,” retain its one-party rule, and preempt social instability. While the past can never predict the future, the China Program will gather together renowned scholars, thought leaders, and policymakers to take stock of where China is now, evaluate its remarkable successes, and consider likely scenarios as it enters another crucial transition point in its social, economic and political maturation. What assumptions might still hold, what strategies may still work, which are no longer viable, and what new factors must be regarded in considering China’s potential “futures”? The conference will explore four sub-themes: (1) China’s economic future; (2) political future; (3) China’s international relations and global economic engagements; and (4) China’s future as seen in comparative perspective.
