The Australian Centre on China in the World warmly invites you to attend ‘China’s rise: prosperity, power, and pushback’ panel discussion and the launch of the China Story Yearbook: Power 权势威力, with opening remarks by Professor Rufus Black, Vice-Chancellor, University of Tasmania.

The China Story Yearbook: Power surveys the various ways in which the Party-state wields its hard, soft, and sharp power, both in China and abroad. Citizens of the PRC have long had to negotiate the state’s power and influence in their life. Increasingly, diaspora communities and non-Chinese citizens, companies and governments around the world are learning to do the same. Some submit, some push back.

Jane Golley and Linda Jaivin, two of the book’s co-editors, will be joined by two of the book’s contributing authors, Ben Hillman and Mark Harrison, to discuss ‘Girl Power’, soft culture, the rapid expansion of state-owned enterprises, the analysis of Taiwan’s politics and more.

The Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) is a research institution established to enhance the existing capabilities of The Australian National University (ANU). It aims to be an integrated, world-leading institution for Chinese Studies and the understanding of China, or what has been called 'Greater China' or the 'Chinese Commonwealth' (the People's Republic of China, the Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Regions,
as well as Taiwan and the Chinese diaspora), on a global scale.
