FLASH FORUM: Big Trouble in Communist China

Co-presented by The Rosenberg Institute
for East Asian Studies at Suffolk University

Heir-apparent to an eminent Chinese governmental post, Xi Jinping, went missing because he was involved in a murder. He’s suddenly reappeared with a questionable excuse for his absence. In the face of this scandal, the Chinese Communist Party is now showing serious disunity, and just weeks before a major leadership transition.

This isn’t a Robert Ludlum novel. This is actually happening.

Dr. Joseph Fewsmith, scholar/author/professor of Chinese politics, will give us the latest update on this dramatic and pivotal situation. Moderator Dr. Ronald Suleski, Director of the Rosenberg Institute for Asian Studies at Suffolk University, will ask Fewsmith the questions we’re all thinking…

After these shocking events, can the Chinese Communists successfully execute their planned sweeping reforms at the 18th Party Congress in November? Will Xi Jinping still be allowed to take over for President Hu Jintao? And how will this scandal and the ensuing political shifts affect Chinese relations with the United States and the rest of the world?
