 2018 10TH LSE SU CHINA DEVELOPMENT FORUM

CHINA'S

PERSPECTIVES REDEFINED

Saturday, 3 Feb 2018

LSE Old Building

 

ABOUT US

The LSE SU China Development Forum(CDF), co-organised by the LSE SU China Development Society and the LSE Institute of Global Affairs, was first founded in 2009. By its 10th birthday, the Forum has grown phenomenally to become the largest China-themed forum in Europe, with an audience of 400. ​The aim of the Forum is to provide a platform for both students interested in Chinese affairs as well as professionals well-versed in China studies to engage in vibrant and in-depth intellectual discussions.

Welcoming its 10-year anniversary, the 2018 LSE SU China Development Forum, ‘China’s Perspectives Redefined’, was conducted with the aim to inspire a series of intellectually-stimulating discussions revolving around how China will reshape her future as she ventures into a new world order. With a view to providing in-depth analyses and answers to the challenges facing China in the new era, the LSE Institute of Global Affairs and the LSE SU China Development Society brought together world-renowned speakers to join the debate and share their invaluable insights across a range of topics at the 2018 CDF.
