In March 2019, twenty-seven Schwarzman Scholars alumni convened in Beijing for a China Refresher seminar. Designed to bring alumni up to date on China’s role in the twenty-first century and its relationship with the United States, the seminar covered recent developments in China’s economy, foreign policy, and domestic political sphere. Two expert briefers, Mark Wu, professor of law at Harvard University, and Yun Sun, senior fellow at the Stimson Center and an NCUSCR Public Intellectuals Program fellow, joined the group for the entirety of the interactive seminar, providing analysis and commentary. In addition to engaging in substantive discussion during each session, participants also took part in a trade war negotiation simulation.
