PUBLIC LECTURE: Confucianism: Values and Democracy

* Login to add events... *
Today's date is Tuesday, September 19, 2017
Confucianism: Values and Democracy : A China in Conversation event exploring how Confucianism and democracy are shaping our understanding of China today. Other events...
Chinese political leaders and intellectuals continue to struggle with how ‘Chinese values’ fit with ‘universal values’ and by extension, global institutions.

Is there a single global modernity that perhaps China can shape? Or are there multiple modernities and multiple, perhaps competitive, values that political systems aspire to?

In the past, debates have focused on the question of whether Confucianism is in conflict or compatible with democracy. However, these debates are increasingly becoming more complex in response to new political and social forces and new questions concerning the relationship between democracy and Confucianism.

Join in the conversation and see how Confucianism and democracy are shaping our understanding of China today.

Presented in partnership with the UWA Law School.
Speaker(s) Professor Baogang He, Alfred Deakin Professor and Chair in International Relations at Deakin University and Professor John Makeham, Chair and Director of the China Studies Research Centre at La Trobe University and President of the Chinese Studies Association of Australia
Location The University Club of WA Auditorium
