Launch of the China Story Year Book

The University of Adelaide is partnering with the Australian Centre on China in the World to launch the China Story Yearbook 2016: Control. Hosted by Senator Penny Wong, this is a unique opportunity to hear from five top China experts speaking on the theme of 'Control' in modern China.

'More cosmopolitan, more lively, more global' is how the China Daily summed up the year 2016 in China. It was also a year of more control. The Chinese Communist Party laid down strict new rules of conduct for its members, continued to assert its dominance over everything from the Internet to the South China Sea and announced a new Five-Year Plan that Greenpeace called 'quite possibly the most important document in the world in setting the pace of acting on climate change'.

The China Story Yearbook 2016: Control surveys the year in China's economy, population planning, law enforcement and reform, environment, Internet, medicine, religion, education, historiography, foreign affairs, and culture as well as developments in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The China Story Yearbook 2016: Control will be launched by Senator the Hon. Penny Wong, followed by a panel discussion with China experts and contributors to the Yearbook.

The China Story Yearbook 2016: Control is a free publication; copies will be distributed at the launch.

Drinks and canapes will be served.
