Professor Ali Jarbawi visits China, offers reflections on its evolution – Birzeit University
Ali Jarbawi, the Director of the Master’s Program in International Studies at Birzeit University, shared his 10-day experience in Shanghai, China, presenting his reflections and impressions about Chinese political culture, the political system, and China’s status as a great polar power.
The conclusion of his insights was that ‘Despite these developments, China has still many issues to deal with, such as the recent dwindling in the economic growth, the imbalances in development, low rates of scientific innovation and entrepreneurship, and the high rate of corruption. However, Jarbawi noted that it is unlikely that the public would demand more political freedom and disposal of the communist ideologies.’
