About the Program
On January 12th Google shocked the world by threatening to withdraw its operations from China claiming it was the victim of censorship and government-sponsored hacking. China argued that it was exercising its right as a sovereign nation to control the way foreign companies conduct themselves and denied that it had improperly interfered with Google’s business operations. Western human rights organizations and Chinese dissidents praised Google for ignoring its bottom line and finally taking a stand against the Chinese government. In the meantime, hundreds of millions of Chinese internet users stand to lose access to Google.
What is at stake in this confrontation for Google, for the Chinese government, and for the Chinese people?
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as our expert panel examines these questions and more.
Lunch will be served.
