In 2013, the Shanghai government announced the establishment of a "pilot free trade zone"(自由贸易试验区), a 29 square km area. The announced aims for the zone include opening up new sectors for investment and trade, loosening currency controls to facilitate internationalization of the yuan, and advancing China's global competitiveness. Xiao Lin, one of the architects of the zone, will discuss the progress made over the first year and prospects for the future.

USC U.S.-China Institute:Shanghai Free Trade Zone (11/5)

"Let me reiterate that our treaty commitment to Japan's security is absolute, and Article 5 covers all territories under Japan's administration, including the Senkaku Islands."
              Pres. Barack Obama, Tokyo, April 24, 2014 

 Most Americans have never heard of these small uninhabited islands, but after World War II the U.S. used them for bombing practice. Japan has administered them since 1972, but the Chinese and Japanese governments both consider them inseparable parts of their nations. The U.S. says that it takes no position on which nation the islands belong to, but says that resolution of the dispute must be done through peaceful means.   

Long a point of contention between the two countries, the issue heated up and garnered global attention in 2012 when China protested the Japanese government's nationalization of the islands. Large protests broke out, sometimes including violence, organizations were mobilized, and there were confrontations at sea. China established a new air defense identification zone including the islands. Depictions of the islands and the dispute in traditional and new media in China, Japan, and the U.S. have done much to shape public opinion and to influence how political leaders discuss the issue. A newly published book, The Dispute Over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands:How Media Narratives Shape Public Opinion and Challenge the Global Order (Palgrave Macmillan)details this. Three contributors to the volume will join us to share their research and to discuss responses to their work. 

USC U.S.-China Institute:Shanghai Free Trade Zone (11/5)Tom Hollihan is professor of communication at USC Annenberg and chairs the USCI executive committee. He edited the book and wrote the introduction and a chapter on the depiction of the dispute in the U.S. media. Zhan Zhang 张展 is a researcher and project coordinator at China Media Observatory at the Università della Svizzera italiana. She contributed a chapter on how Chinese traditional media discuss the issue. Patricia Riley is associate professor of communication and directs the Global Communication masters degree program at USC Annenberg. She looks at what the controversy shows about the conduct of public diplomacy in a new global media environment. Hollihan and Riley recently completed a book tour through Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo and will also discuss responses to their arguments.

USC U.S.-China Institute:Shanghai Free Trade Zone (11/5)11/19/2014 - China's Green Religion

Time:4:00 - 5:30PM

The monumental task that China faces in the 21st century is to create a way of development that does not destroy the ecological foundations for the life and livelihood of its 1.4 billion citizens. This requires a creative leap beyond the Enlightenment mentality and the Western model of industrialization. Can China's cultural traditions, its religious values, ideals and ways of life, play a role in building a sustainable China? James Miller discusses the contribution of Daoism, China's indigenous religion, to this urgent debate.

James Miller is Professor of Chinese Religions at Queen's University, Canada. His research focuses on the social imagination of nature in China, and he has published five books including most recently Religion and Ecological Sustainability in China(co-edited with Dan Smyer Yu and Peter van der Veer, Routledge 2014).

This event is co-sponsored by the USC School of Religion

Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a discussion with Xiao Lin, director of the Shanghai Development Research Center, on the progress of the "pilot free trade zone" established in Shanghai last year.
