About Rethinking China

China Matters’ 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).

Each Rethinking China speaker is asked to describe how they sees China; why they see China the way they do, and on that basis share their thoughts on what Australia’s approach to the PRC should be.
