The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at UM will host this community conversation on China. The public is invited to participate in vigorous table talk discussions on such topics as trade, politics, human rights, aging and education.

The Mansfield Center will join the National Council on U.S. China Relations for the national CHINA Town Hall event that will feature a webcast discussion moderated by ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopolous. Following the national webcast, the evening will feature eight table-based discussions with local  experts on a variety of topics, including the U.S.-China Trade War, Education in China, and the continuing protests in Hong Kong.

While free and open to the public, RSVPs to kayla.sheridan@umontana.edu are requested for those who wish to select their specific table discussion. Given the hour, heavy appetizers also will be served.

Interim Executive Director Deena Mansour noted, “UM is a statewide leader in developing international education opportunities for our community.  Given the critical national security importance of China to the U.S., we are honored to host a conversation on China that features nationwide access and local expertise.”

The range of speakers includes: Joanna R. Shelton, former Deputy Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development; Terry Weidner, professor of Chinese  politics and former director of the Mansfield Center; Si Gao, UM doctoral candidate in forest and conservation sciences; Jingjing Sun, UM assistant professor of educational psychology; Robert Seidenschwarz, founding partner of SG Long Financial; Dexter Roberts, award-winning journalist and speaker and former China Bureau Chief and Asia News Editor at Bloomberg Businessweek; Phyllis Ngai, UM adjunct associate professor of communication; and Yueyang Hu, UM College of Business Administration Graduate Student.
