Rethinking China with Stan Grant



China Matters is pleased to host “Rethinking China” with Stan Grant on 26 May at the Museum of Sydney.

Our 2021 in-person Sydney Lecture Series: Rethinking China features speakers of diverse expertise and background with the aim to inject breadth and depth into the public discussion about the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Stan, who spent close to a decade reporting from Hong Kong and Beijing, will describe how he sees China, why he sees China the way he does, and on that basis share his thoughts on what Australia’s approach to the PRC should be.

CEO of the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations Michaela Browning will moderate the event.

Drinks and canapés will follow the lecture.

Tickets are limited and registration is essential. Click here to register.
