Course Description: As China continues its emergence as a global power, the complexities of governing and living in China remain immense. The country’s recent economic slowdown, the government’s increasingly authoritarian practices, and the uncertainties with changing political landscapes abroad have raised questions about a sustained “peaceful rise,” to use President Xi Jinping’s oft-quoted phrase. Comprehending the complex issues that define contemporary China is essential for teachers and students today. This five-day residential institute will explore some of the most critical issues facing China today, including political changes, economic development, environmental degradation, demographic trends, social inequalities, and regional security. Participants will work with China specialists to develop a well-rounded understanding of contemporary China and gain exemplary resources to use in the classroom.
