Understanding and Engaging China from the Left: A Panel Discussion Geopolitical Economy Research Group (GERG) Panel
Tensions between the US and China have been rising for the better part of a decade, if not longer with President Obama’s executing his ‘Pivot to Asia’ and President Trump waging trade and technology wars and, amid the pandemic, a New Cold War against China. In this context, the left needs to understand and engage with China on the basis of a sophisticated understanding of its internal dynamics and international role. This panel of left experts on China from Canada, the US and China is designed to spark off precisely that conversation.

Chair and Organizer: Professor Radhika Desai, Department of Political Studies, Director, Geopolitical Economy Research Group, University of Manitoba
