The Chinese People's Liberation Army under the Xi Jinping Regime
Co-hosts : Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF), Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies (YCAPS)
YCAPS and the Sasakawa Peace Foundation are pleased to announce the next event in the Community Conversations seminar series focused on the Misawa community! This event will feature professor and author, Dr. Yusuke Anami of Tohoku University, who will lead an exploration of China's military build-up under Xi Jinping.
China under the Xi Jinping regime is moving away from democratization and going back to individual dictatorship. Xi's close ties with the PLA is one major factor that allowed the concentration of power. Xi is determined to maintain China's military expansion. How did the PLA contribute to Xi's rise within the Chinese Communist Party? Why is Xi so eager to enhance the capabilities of the PLA? What is the condition of PLA's navy and air force? These are the questions that will be discussed during this talk.
*Please kindly note that this is an in-person event taking place in Misawa, Aomori. It will not be streamed online.
