During the past year, there has been a change in leadership in the People’s Republic of China. What are these new leaders like and what are the implications of their beliefs about politics, their personalities, and their experiences for how they will lead China? Margaret Hermann, Erik French, and Elisabeth IJmker will lead a conversation presenting data on President Xi Jinpingand Premier Li Keqiangbased on their backgrounds and analysis of their interactions with other leaders, the media, and their speeches. We hope you will join us.
