Germany Listening: Dingding Chen

A lecture by Prof. Dingding Chen, Jinan University, Guangzhou, China

Dingding Chen, Professor of International Relations at Jinan University, Guangzhou, China as well as Founder and President of Intellisia Institute (海国图智研究院), an independent Chinese think tank, will be our next guest at “Germany Listening” on 29 May. He will deliver a lecture entitled “Making America Great Again and the Chinese Dream: Is Germany Caught Between Giants?”.

Professor Chen, who has written extensively about US-China relations in the age of Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, will address the question of how Germany fits into a world (dis)order largely determined by the relationship between these two global powers. Is Germany ‘caught’ between the US and China? Can Germany contribute to mutually beneficial EU-China relations? And is an EU-China alliance compatible with strong transatlantic relations as well as a peaceful global order?

Chen’s research interests include Chinese politics and foreign policy, human rights, and Asian security. In addition to his activities in China, he is also a non-resident fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) in Berlin.

“Germany Listening“ is a series of events organized by Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and the common Master Program International Relations of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt University and the University of Potsdam. Here, international guests with backgrounds in politics and political science present and discuss with students their hopes and expectations regarding Germany’s role in Europe and the world.
