MLI begins an exploration some of the distressing realities of 21st century China, and what they mean for Canada
OTTAWA, Oct. 26, 2017 – Should Canadians be wary of closer relations with China? That issue has been hotly debated as Canada’s government considers entering negotiations toward a free trade agreement with the Asian giant. But what does China want, and what are the risks of dealing with its authoritarian regime?
The October 2017 issue of Inside Policy, the Macdonald-Laurier Institute’s flagship magazine, introduces our Dragon at the Door project, with articles from leading experts exploring different (and indeed troubling) aspects of China’s rise under its leader Xi Jinping. Only a selection of articles appears in this issue of Inside Policy, including articles by Cmdre (Ret’d) Eric Lerhe, Charles Burton, Duanjie Chen, and Harsh Pant. Others will be released in coming weeks, and all of them will soon be compiled in a special edited collection.
