China’s Reform and Opening Up: Four Decades of Legacies and Lessons

China’s Reform and Opening Up: Four Decades of Legacies and Lessons

Friday, Feb 08, 2019 - Friday, Feb 08, 2019 8:00 am - 3:30 pm   |  LBJ School of Public Affairs, SRH 3.124

China is commemorating four decades since it turned away from Mao Zedong Thought, and toward the blend of market and socialist policies initiated in 1978 by Deng Xiaoping collectively known as Reform and Opening Up. Over that time, much has changed. China has gone from mostly rural to mostly urban, from poor to middle income, and from militarily weak to powerful.

At this conference, senior scholars will discuss and reflect on the domestic and international policy legacies of China’s economic, political, and military development from the 1970s until today. Speakers will also examine what, if any, lessons policymakers in Beijing and other countries can take from China’s development experience.
