The CIC National Capital Branch, in partnership with the Centre for International Policy Studies at the University of Ottawa, cordially invites you to its upcoming flagship event:
China – Recent Changes, the Plight of the Uyghurs and Regional Implications, Featuring The Globe and Mail‘s Asia Correspondent, Nathan VanderKlippe
17 June 2021, 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) | Virtual live discussion
For eight years, Canadians and many others around the world have had the benefit of reading the insights of The Globe and Mail’s Asia Correspondent, Nathan VanderKlippe as China has seen dramatic societal, technological and geostrategic changes. The CIC National Capital Branch and the Centre for International Policy Studies at the University of Ottawa present an opportunity to hear from Mr. VanderKlippe regarding the changes that Xi Jinping has introduced in China, and what these mean for the country and its neighbours in the region. Mr. VanderKlippe’s in-depth reporting from Xinjiang has brought the plight of the Uyghurs into our homes, and his coverage of protests in Hong Kong has put us in the streets with the young people and their supporters. He has broken dozens of important stories and won many awards, two just in May – one from World Press Freedom Canada and the other, the Norman Webster Award for International Reporting. Join us for the opportunity to hear Mr. VanderKlippe’s reflections on his years reporting from Asia.
