China is een enorme speler in de wereldpolitiek. Toch weten we vrij weinig over dit mysterieuze land. Daarom organiseren we in samenwerking met jongerenpartijen, de JD Arnhem-Nijmegen en JOVD Rijk van Nijmegen, op zaterdag 15 februari het China symposium 2020. Laat je een dag onderdompelen in de Chinese politiek en cultuur.


China wordt gezien als dé opkomende wereldmacht. Het is hoogtijd ons meer te verdiepen in deze grote speler. Hoe staat het met Chinese politieke situatie en haar internationale betrekkingen? We gaan in op actuele onderwerpen zoals de Huawei-affaire, de onrust in Hong Kong en de uitbreiding van Chinese militaire installaties in de Zuid-Chinese zee. Waar komen deze politieke spanningen vandaan en wat betekenen ze voor ons?

De dag bestaat uit inspirerende workshops en prikkelende interviews met experts. We leren meer over Chinese filosofie, hoe je een succesvolle onderneming in China start en er is de mogelijkheid tot het volgen van een stoomcursus Chinese taal. Een informatieve en interactieve bijeenkomst waarin deze grootmacht centraal staat.
