How Does China Respond to the Threat of Terrorism? Information and Political Mechanisms

The world is faced with the necessary, if unasked for, task of effectively countering globally coordinated and financed extremist-based terrorism. This lecture presents Professor Fang’s comprehensive structural approach that China is utilizing to counter that threat. Under the title of “The Law of Triangle Motion,” the synergistic interactions between a) government leadership, b) psychologically informed, legislative, educational, economic and defensive countermeasures to extremist ideology, and c) involvement of the people and society, will be described in detail. Complimentary political mechanisms will be discussed.

Note this lecture will be translated live by translator
