Open to Debate: How should we think about China’s place in the world?

by Canada 2020. Posted October 26, 2021


For decades, we’ve heard about the rise of China. A major historical and contemporary power, the country shapes domestic and global politics — as Canada knows quite well. And yet, coverage of China, its affairs, and its international relations is often hyperbolic, skewed, and incomplete. A new book from a veteran reporter on China-Canada relations adds depth, rigour, and new perspectives to that coverage. So, how should we think about China’s place in the world?

On this episode of Open to Debate, David Moscrop talks with Joanna Chiu, senior reporter with the Toronto Star and author of China Unbound: A New World Disorder.
