Expectations for China’s Third Plenum meeting are high. The meeting of top leaders is expected to set the direction for domestic policy for the next decade. The risks China faces in deepening its social and economic reforms may be higher still. Growth rates are slowing and public dissatisfaction with pollution, inequality, corruption, and food safety is rising. President Xi Jinping and his allies must decide which powerful interest groups they are willing take on to set China on a path to stable continued development.

At this critical time, the Wilson Center brings experts together to discuss events in this Ground Truth Briefing.

The Ground Truth Briefing series taps into the resources of former Center Scholars and Fellows who are on the ground in hot spots around the globe and can share their unique viewpoints. This on the record briefing is by invitation only.
