Roundtable Discussion with Delegation from Central Party School of China

Delegation from the Central Party School of China and Wilson Center experts discussed China's legislative reforms on the local level and the role of Congress in shaping foreign policy in the United States.

Date & Time

May. 12, 2011
9:00am – 10:30am ET


The Center for Asian Democracy at the University of Louisville, the United States of America, and Central Party School (CPS) of China (also known as the "Chinese Communist Party School") entered into a contract in 2006 to conduct research on China's legislative reforms at the local level.

The project has finished one Beijing workshop in which five American scholars gave lectures at CPS on how the American political system works in 2007. The project also finished eight workshops in Shanxi Province, Anhui Province, Shanxi Province, and Beijing Municipality in the summers of 2008 and 2009 respectively which were directed by Shiping Hua, from the University of Louisville, and Liu Dexi, from CPS.

This visit to Washington enabled the legislators to learn about and view the United States government directly.
