Event Description

Dr. Francis Fukuyama was scheduled to speak at the Off-the-Record Lecture Series’ and the Foreign Policy Association’s joint Elizabeth French Hitchcock Lecture last fall and was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. Dr. Fukuyama returns to Off-the-Record this October, and all Foreign Policy Association members are invited to attend free of charge.

Please join Dr. Fukuyama, who will discuss whether the rise of China and the “China Model” of authoritarian capitalism provides modern developing countries with an alternative to the system of liberal democracy and market economy that has prevailed in the West. How durable is the “China Model”, and in light of financial crises in the U.S. and Europe, how will liberal democracy fare in the West?

Registration beginning at 12:00 p.m.

Coffee and tea will be available.
