    EXHIBITION UNTIL JULY 3, 2017 – WeChat is a mobile messaging app, developed in China, with more than 600 million users worldwide. Combining the functions of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, WeChat has become the primary means of communication for members of China’s younger generation, now living and working throughout the world.

    This emphasis on global communication transcending local culture is the key focus of the exhibition, We Chat: A Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art, which brings together 10 young Chinese artists, some still based in mainland China and others living abroad.

    Climate in the Trump Era: Can China Lead?

    Strand, London WC2R 2LS, UK - London, King’s College

    U.S. President Donald Trump, who once called climate change a Chinese hoax, threatens domestic climate change action in the United States, and the UN Paris Agreement itself. Yet Chinese President Xi Jinping has doubled down on his support for the low-carbon transition, calling the UN climate accord a “hard-won achievement” that “signatories should stick to.” With the US in retreat and Europe divided, can China step up and lead? If so, how might it shape global climate action, and what can it tell us about how China is changing?

    Welfare, Work, and Poverty: Social Assistance in China

    6 East 43rd Street, 24th floor - New York, National Committee on U.S.-China Relations

    Even as the China’s economic reforms in the 1980s and ’90s laid the foundation for it to become an economic powerhouse, increasingly wide gaps opened up between rich and poor, leaving behind those ill equipped to compete in a market economy. In 1993, Shanghai implemented a minimum livelihood guarantee or dibao, an anti-poverty safety net. Since then, the program has expanded throughout China and is centrally regulated. In her new book, Welfare, Work, and Poverty: Social Assistance in China, Qin Gao examines how successful the dibao system has been at alleviating poverty. Her work not only deepens our understanding of entitlements in China, but also adds the Chinese case as a comparative example to the growing body of literature looking at welfare systems around the world. On May 10, 2017, Dr. Gao will join the National Committee in New York City for a discussion of her book, the development and expansion of the dibao system, as well as its policy implications for China and other countries. The program will be moderated by Dr. Mark Frazier, professor of politics at the New School for Social Research.

    YCW HK: David Shambaugh – “Assessing China’s Future”

    6th Floor of Parekh House, 63 Wyndham Street, Central - Hong Kong, Bar Six

    China is at a critical juncture in the development of its economy, society, policy, national security, and international relations. The direction it takes at this turning point will determine whether it stalls or continues to develop and prosper. Will China be successful in implementing a new wave of transformational reforms that could last decades and make it the world’s leading superpower? Or will it emerge as a hard, authoritarian and aggressive superstate? Our guest speaker, Professor David Shambaugh, will join us to discuss the possibilities.
