Takshashila Institution Hosts Jeanne-Marie Gescher

On the morning of 5 February 2018, the Takshashila Institution hosted Jeanne-Marie Gescher at their offices. The discussion covered an array of topics ranging from the Warring States period to the politics of the Chinese Communist Party and Social Media in China. Jeanne-Marie Gescher spoke at length about the extent of the influence of ancient Chinese philosophy on contemporary politics and how this aspect is fairly understudied by academia.

Jean Marie Gescher is one of the world’s foremost advisors on China and the author of ‘Becoming China: The Story Behind the State’.
