    3:00 PM Remaking the East Asian Monetary System: Institutionalizing a New Order?

    In the twenty years since the Asian Financial Crisis, the countries of East Asia (ASEAN+3) have built the largest regional emergency liquidity fund in the world (CNIM). A total of US$240 billion has been pledged to aid member states facing a currency crisis, which far exceeds the funds they could access from the International Monetary Fund. Nonetheless, CMIM has been functionally subordinate to decisions made by the IMF, something that may now be changing. This talk addresses the long-term potential of CMIM as a bulwark for financial stability in East Asia.

    12:00 PM China’s Legal Reforms: After the Fourth Plenum

    Wang Zhenmin

    Professor and former Dean, Tsinghua University Law School

    More than a year ago, the Fourth Plenum of the Chinese Communist Party’s 18th Central Committee signaled unprecedented emphasis on “the rule of law” and issued key policy documents to support legal and judicial reform in China.  One of China’s leading scholars of constitutional and public law will assess the reforms, how they have been pursued in different institutions in the Chinese legal system, and offer reflections on the challenges that remain ahead.

    Lunch will be provided.
