Abstract

During the past few years, China has reinvigorated its efforts to regain the initiative in the public sphere. In particular the restructuring of the Internet governance landscape has terminated a number of trends that China scholars and observers deemed unstoppable, and has altered the logic for public discourse and state-society relationships. From social media to e-commerce and surveillance, the Chinese state is building new methods that better position it for the challenges it foresees for the coming decades. This lecture will survey these developments, and discuss their implications for our understanding of the durability of China’s political system, changing global politics and the influence of technology in political life.
