Daniel A. Bell will be joining a panel of expert faculty to discuss his book, The China Model: Political Meritocracy and the Limits of Democracy. In his book, Bell argues that Chinese-style meritocracy has many advantages over electoral democracy, and can help remedy some of its key flaws. The panelists will explore the advantages and pitfalls of political meritocracy and whether it can be successfully combined with electoral democracy. Panelists will include fellow PUP author Loubna El Amine from Georgetown University (Classical Confucian Political Thought: A New Interpretation), William Keech and Edmund Malesky from the Department of Political Science at Duke, and Judith Kelley from Sanford. The discussion will be moderated by Mac McCorkle, associate professor of the practice at Sanford.
