Dr Michael Barr, Lecturer in International Politics, Newcastle University


The speaker will examine the connections between China’s domestic politics and its attempts to brand itself internationally. He will analyse the international reaction to Chinese soft power and show how the West’s own past, hopes, and fears shape the way it thinks about and engages with China.
