White Paper Protests: What’s Happening in China? – Voices on the Ground

December 6, 2022 @ 8:30 am 10:00 am

Ya-Wen Lei, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Harvard University

Frank Tsai, Founder, China Crossroads, Shanghai

Selina Wang, International Correspondent, CNN Beijing

David Rennie, Beijing Bureau Chief, The Economist 

Moderator: Dorinda Elliott, Executive Director, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, Harvard University 

Where did the White Paper Protests that have swept across China come from, and where are they going? Join us for a Zoom discussion with journalists and entrepreneurs on the ground in China to explore the roots of discontent, the protesters’ short-term demands, and the outlook for change going forward. Will China relax its Zero Covid policy? Will the eruption of protests across China pose a long-term problem for Xi Jinping? Can China’s battered economy recover?
