The China Model: A Discussion with Author Daniel Bell

October 19, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Daniel A. Bell will be joining a panel of expert faculty to discuss his book, The China Model: Political Meritocracy and the Limits of Democracy. In his book, Bell argues that Chinese-style meritocracy has many advantages over electoral democracy, and can help remedy some of its key flaws. The panelists will explore the advantages and pitfalls of political meritocracy and whether it can be successfully combined with electoral democracy. Panelists will include Loubna El Amine from Georgetown University, William Keech and Edmund Malesky from the Department of Political Science at Duke, and Judith Kelley from Sanford. The discussion will be moderated by Mac McCorkle, associate professor of the practice at Sanford.

Co-sponsored by DCID, APSI, DUCIS, Kenan Institute for Ethics, Political Science, and Sanford School of Public Policy.
