PUBLIC LECTURE: Confucianism: Values and Democracy
|Confucianism: Values and Democracy : A China in Conversation event exploring how Confucianism and democracy are shaping our understanding of China today.
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.
