INDiscussion: Blog Competition

You are part of INDePth’s Discussion.

INDiscussion is a blog competition that seeks to engage students from around the world to actively and critically respond to INDePth 2013’s case study: China. Between November and February, we will post entries submitted on our website and share them to audience across our social media platforms. Make your voice a part of this INDePth discussion now.

Topic

As we have witnessed,  the pace of social, political, and economic change in China over the past few decades has been astounding. Coinciding with China’s rise, paradoxically, are serious social, demographic, economic, environmental and political challenges.  Striving to foster a constructive and global discussion on such matters, we invite you to share your ideas on China’s development. You are open to outline particular challenges China faces, propose possible solutions, or highlight areas of success.

Eligibility

Current undergraduate students from all disciplines from any university/college.

Submission Guideline

Submit a blog entry (250 to 1000 words) to indiscussion@indepthconference.com about your thoughts on development in China. Your entry can take any stance from any disciplinary perspective. It can be an entry you write specifically for this competition, or an essay you wrote for a class related to this topic.
Essays that have already been published in other online or print journal are not eligible.
Every student is eligible for submitting only 1 blog entry. In your submission, please include your full name, school, current year of study, programs of study and contact information (email and phone).
