IN-DEPTH: Can the CCP and democracy co-exist? It's complicated. W/Roger Huang

We're back!!  After the Christmas holidays, it's time to bring you the final episodes in our series on the decline of democracy.


Today, we take a closer look at the Chinese Communist Party.  Under Xi Jingping, China has sought to undermine democratic nations and to export its authoritarian form of government to other countries.  


What does this mean for the future of liberal democracy around the world?

Our guest is Dr Roger Huang, a lecturer in terrorism studies and political violence at Macquarie University.  We discuss:

  • The relationship between Chinese culture and democracy;

  • What the crackdown in Hong Kong can tell us about the CCP; and

  • Whether tensions between the US and China could trigger a new Cold War.
