Prospect for Chinese Politics: The 19th Party Congress and Beyond

+ Register for this Event 


In the past year, we have seen intense leadership tussle in Beijing. There are various signs that President Xi is consolidating his power. Who will be in the next Politburo Standing Committee, the echelon of power in Beijing? Who will take over the President position when Xi eventually step down if he do so? The upcoming 19th Party Congress scheduled for mid-October, where leadership transition will take place, is an important event to watch. Our panelists, Carl Minzner of Fordham Law School and Guoguang Wu of Victoria University of British Columbia will dissect these important issues for us.

Carl Minzner is a professor at Fordham Law School, specializing in Chinese law and governance. His book, End of an Era: How China’s Authoritarian Revival is Undermining its Rise, will be published by Oxford University Press in spring 2018.

Guoguang Wu, a Ph.D. from Princeton, is Professor in Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria, and concurrently Professor in Department of History and Chair in China & Asia-Pacific Relations at the Centre for Asian Pacific Initiatives at the same University. He specializes in Comparative Politics, Global/Comparative Political Economy, and the Global South (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan). He is author of four books, including China’s Party Congress: Power, Legitimacy, and Institutional Manipulation (CUP 2015) and Globalization against
Democracy: A Political Economy of Capitalism after its Global Triumph (CUP 2017).
