-

Previous conferences have been major successes (full summaries and photographs can be viewed for 2018 and 2017). This year, in addition to the annual conference, the YCW invites you to celebrate cutting-edge insight on China from the YCW community in our Awards Ceremony.

-

In response to the sensationalisation and oversimplification of many China-related issues and events in the media, this year’s Conference theme is: “PRC at 70: Behind the Headlines”.

As part of a half-day programme, leading China experts and emerging young thinkers will explore important and overlooked themes emerging from China today, through three complementary lenses. They include:

Keynote Address

  • Jonathan Fenby CBE (Chairman (China), TSLombard and author of Will China Dominate the 21st Century?)

Science & Technology

  • Matthieu Burnay (Associate Professor, Queen Mary, University of London)

Chinese Diplomacy & the Developing World

  • Linda Calabrese (Research Fellow, Overseas Development Institute)

Society & Culture (Theme: The Rise of China’s Millenials)

  • Arnold Ma (Founder, Qumin);
  • Yuan Ren (Journalist, broadcaster)

This year's Conference will be followed in the evening by our Young China Watcher of the Year Awards Ceremony (see below).

The Awards Ceremony seeks to recognise a young professional who has made an extraordinary contribution to the global understanding of China, be that in the realm of politics, business, academia, or civil society. The initiative aims to elevate the work of up-and-coming talent within the global community of China observers, thinkers, and doers.

You can view the shortlist of Young China Watchers of the Year here.

Tickets for the Awards Ceremony are now free of charge.
