Reforms at Home, and Abroad

Hao Wu on the Promise of Transformation in China and Kevin Bankston and Rebecca MacKinnon on Curbing the NSA

Documentarian and New America fellow Hao Wu explains to Anne-Marie Slaughter why the Chinese government has announced a recent slew of economic and social reforms. But he’s not sure they’ll live up to their transformative promise. Kevin Bankston, the new policy director at New America’s Open Technology Institute, and writer and Internet freedom activist Rebecca MacKinnon, a New America senior research fellow, join Slaughter to unpack the latest bill aimed at curbing NSA overreach, and expose its surprising opponents.

Anne-Marie Slaughter is president and CEO of the New America Foundation, and the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University.
