On the 21 November 2020, CILD hosted a talk for students to learn about the human rights situation in China as well as China’s geopolitical vision. The forum was moderated by Ng Yong Zheng and paneled by Dr Benjamin Barton from Nottingham University Malaysia. Dr Barton specialises in China Affairs like foreign policy, economic statecraft, security policy and the likes.
A total of 19 students attended the event, excluding the organisers and the panelist. Most of the participants expressed their enjoyment of the event afterwards, commenting on the excellent quality of the panel and its moderators. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the panel succeeded in engaging with on the idea of internationalism, and made students consider joining the ever-expanding exco team.
