THE 11TH LSE SU CHINA DEVELOPMENT FORUM

EMBRACING

NEW DYNAMICS

SATURDAY, 23 FEB 2019

LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS

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. Over the past 10 years, the Forum has grown phenomenally to become the most experienced and the largest China-themed forum in Europe, with an audience of over 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.

 

Now in its 11th year, the forum in 2019 is aptly titled “Embracing New Dynamics” in light of disruptive changes domestically and abroad. The 2019 Forum was conducted with the aim to inspire a series of intellectually-stimulating discussions revolving around how China will reassess her position in the world on her 70th birthday, and subsequently, how she intends to 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, in partnership with the world-class LSE IDEAS, brought together world-class speakers to join the debate and share their invaluable insights across a range of topics at the 2019 CDF.
