Dr Mayling Birney Visits St Pauls

Chinese Embassy

The Senior School welcomed Dr Mayling Birney from LSE who came to speak about China and its government. Taking ideas from her upcoming book, she explained her theory that China governs not by rule of law, as liberal democracies like ours do, or by the rule of man, in other words by dictatorship; rather, China governs by priorities. Dr Birney pieced together evidence she had gathered from China, including case studies and examples of government documents she had read, to provide strong evidence for her argument, and it is safe to say that students will now look on China in a different way.
