A Liberal Silent Majority in China? A Big Data China Event
The CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics and the Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) launch a new collaboration, Big Data China, to bridge the gap between cutting-edge quantitative academic research and the Washington policy community. Through regular multimedia features, written analysis, and public events, Big Data China identifies, analyzes, and introduces top academic research on China and then teases out the most relevant findings for today’s policy issues.
Please join the CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics for the launch of the inaugural feature, “Public Opinion in China: A Liberal Silent Majority?” which highlights the work of Stanford professors Jennifer Pan and Yiqing Xu on recent trends in Chinese public opinion. CSIS Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy and SCCEI co-director Scott Rozelle will offer opening remarks and moderate the panel discussion. Jennifer Pan and Yiqing Xu will present the main findings of their research. Panelists include Carla Freeman of the U.S. Institute of Peace, Suisheng Zhao of University of Denver, Bruce Dickson of George Washington University, and Jessica Chen Weiss of Cornell University and the U.S. Department of State.This event is made possible by generous funding from Stanford University.
