Civita invited to a breakfast meeting Monday November 13th 8.00-9.30 am.
While China has experienced an unprecedented economic growth and reduction in extreme poverty, it has remained undemocratic. China’s concept of democracy and human rights differs from the West. Still, her economic ties has continued to deepen with the rest of the world. How will the rise of China influence liberal values which play a key role in the contemporary international system? And in dealing with China, will democratic countries have to choose either human rights or economic interests?
The panelists were: Dr. Lobsang Sangay, Tibetan Exile Prime minister and Senior Fellow at the East Asian Legal Studies Program at Harvard Law School, John Peder Egenæs, Secretary General of Amnesty International Norway and Stein Ringen, Visiting Professor, Department of Political Economy, King’s College London.
