NCUSCR: Ira Belkin and Cheng Li on the Legal and Political Implications of the Bo Xilai Trial

On August 28, 2013, the trial of Bo Xilai, former Party Secretary of Chongqing, has been called the most important political trial in China in decades. On Wednesday, August 28, the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR) convened a discussion with two American experts on Chinese legal development and politics, Ira Belkin and Cheng Li, respectively. In an on-the-record teleconference moderated by NCUSCR President Steve Orlins, the two reflected on the trial and its implications for law and politics in China, and on the Sino-U.S. relationship.
