About this event

The Chinese Communist Party is due to celebrate its centenary this July. The party has lived through different periods and was led by numerous leaders, who led with different levels of severity. However, since 2012, its current leader Xi Jinping, has imposed a greater level of control over the CCP. The current leader is taking over the party and its government which in turn signals a decisive break from its’ past.

The Council on Geostrategy is delighted to invite you to a timely discussion with Tom Tugendhat MP (Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee) and our two Associate Fellows Dr John Hemmings and Charles Parton OBE about the future of the CCP and the risks it poses to the stability of the geopolitical order of the future.
