The past few years have been particularly challenging for the Chinese Communist Party. After draconian restrictions, it pivoted radically from its Zero Covid policy. Its only significant ally, Russia, failed in its attempt to destroy Ukraine. Hostility towards China is the only bipartisan consensus left in the United States. To better understand these issues, we will have a conversation followed by a Q&A session with Valérie Niquet.
