Event Details

Extraordinary changes have disrupted the status quo of Chinese Communist Party governance over the last decade. The Party calls this a new era of "China-style governance", claiming that both traditional and socialist ideas about law and morality underpin the Party's new political and legal thinking. At the same time, new technologies of surveillance and big data development have been incorporated into the Party's governance strategy. How are ideology and technology shaping changes in governance under Xi Jinping? This question will be addressed by a panel of Chinese law and governance experts, chaired by Richard Iron CMG OBE, President of AIIA Victoria.


MORNING SESSION (9:30-11:30AM AEDT)


How is Ideology Shaping Changes in Governance under Xi Jinping?



AFTERNOON SESSION (2:00-4:00PM AEDT)
