Event description

Description

The Australia-China Relations Institute (ACRI) at the University of Technology Sydney welcomes John Keane, Professor of Politics at the University of Sydney, to discuss his new book When trees fall, monkeys scatter (World Scientific, 2017).

In the global China debate, When trees fall, monkeys scatter is a strong critique of the orthodox view that the People's Republic of China (PRC) is an 'authoritarian' system and an unusual reflection on what lies ahead for the PRC. What are the implications of Professor Keane's analysis for the Australia-China relationship?

Following his presentation, Professor Keane will be joined by Professor Baogang He, Chair in International Relations at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Deakin University, and Professor the Hon Bob Carr, Director of ACRI, for a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session with the audience.


Date: Tuesday March 6 2018

Time: 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Location: UTS Business School, Building 8, Level 3 Auditorium, 14-28 Ultimo Road, Ultimo NSW 2007
