 Profiting from Protest:

Who’s winning in the scuffle for freedom?

The cases of China, Syria and Iraq

The path to economic and political liberalisation has proven bumpy and often dangerous as opportunists seek to cash in on chaos and uncertainty. Even as China cautiously moves toward a more open society, it responds fearfully and violently toward the protest movements of an increasingly empowered people. These conflicting impulses create spaces for power-mongers and profiteers. So who will win in China's scuffle for freedom?

Consul General of the People's Republic of China in Sydney, Mr Li Huaxin, served in Iraq and Syria before his posting to Australia. In conversation with Australian Financial Review Asia-Pacific editor Greg Earl, Mr Li will discuss the scuffle for freedom in China, Syria and Iraq.

 

Date: Wednesday 18 September 2013

Time: 6:30 for 7pm

Venue: Thai Lemongrass, 70 Stanley Darlinghurst

Cost: $60 including dinner and wine
