Library series explores: Is This China’s Century?

Stephen Harder, international lawyer and global adjunct professor of law at New York University in Shanghai, will present China’s View of the World – and of America at Scarborough Public Library.

The presentation is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24. The Library is located at 48 Gorham Road in Scarborough.

Harder’s talk will address aspects of Chinese history, culture, economics and politics that shape a Chinese view of the world – and the Chinese view of America. The program is the first of three events being offered at the library in partnership with the Camden Conference exploring the 2019 conference theme, Is This China’s Century?

From 1996 through 2016, Harder was based in Hong Kong and Shanghai and led the China practice of an international law firm. He has acted as counsel to American, European and Japanese companies investing in China and as counsel to China’s state-owned investment funds and development banks in projects in Russia, South America and Africa. For several years immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he was based in Brussels, Warsaw and Moscow.

The event is free to attend and open to the public.
