HC-8 The Capitol Building
Just after the U.S. elections, China began its once-in-a-decade leadership transition. With the selection of the new Politburo Standing Committee, including Xi Jinping as President of China, Party Secretary General, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, what does this mean for the future of China? Dr. Jeffrey Bader joined us to explain the Chinese political system and to discuss the new leadership and what these changes might mean for Sino-U.S. relations as well as China policy domestically and regionally.
Details from past briefings in the 2012 Leadership in Transition Briefing Series, including Greater China, Myanmar (Burma), Korea, and Japan, are available here.
