Please be advised: This event will premiere LIVE on this page at 10:00 a.m. EST, Thursday, February 25.

Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Eric Brown and Adjunct Fellow Nury Turkel for a discussion with veteran journalist Kai Strittmatter about his groundbreaking book We Have Been Harmonised: Life in China’s Surveillance State.

China experts were once comfortable describing the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as “post-totalitarian,” but under Xi Jinping the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has used big data and artificial intelligence to build a new kind of totalitarianism.

In his new book, Strittmatter looks closely at the rise of “digital Leninism,” explains how the CCP has perfected techno-tyranny to maintain its grip on power, and explores the global impact of these practices.

Reforming the Classification System: Challenges, Approaches, and Priorities

Our national security relies on the careful and deliberate creation, dissemination, and protection of classified information. But some contend that the current system for classifying and declassifying US government records is outdated and imposes significant economic and public policy costs, directly and indirectly harming national security.
