Remaking China from the Outside

What can Chinese journalists do in the face of political upheavals in their native land, and can the term “diaspora” signal not loss and departure but hope and renewal? Drawing on two-decades of reporting and firsthand experience, award-winning journalist and newsroom founder Annie Jieping Zhang will reflect on the changes in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and overseas Chinese communities and explore potential paths of societal transformation. This event will be moderated by Paul Tsai China Center fellow Yangyang Cheng.

Co-sponsored by Yale Law School’s Paul Tsai China Center and the Council on East Asia Studies. This event will be moderated by Paul Tsai China Center fellow Yangyang Cheng.
