Palabras chave China Portugal España

The Conferences are inspired by the publication of the book coordinated by Xulio Ríos and Jorge Tavares “Chibérica: Visiones ibéricas de la China contemporánea” (Editorial Popular, 2023) which promoted a shared view on the relations between Spain, Portugal and China.

In 2024 and under the general objective of a better understanding of contemporary China, from a European and specifically Iberian perspective, the Conference will bring together six Spanish and Portuguese specialists, through thematic blocks on Economy, Politics and Society.

The Conferences will take place in three 1-hour sessions, on Tuesday 9, Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 July, between 20.00 and 21.00 (Spanish time). In all Sessions there will be initial interventions by the invited specialists (10-15 minutes long) and there will be half an hour at the end for questions from the public and debate between the participants.
