Huayuquan: Speak and be Heard

David Murphy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


HUAYUQUAN is the right to speak and be heard, or to speak with authority. It is also the power to lead and guide debate, or to set the parameters of acceptable discourse. In the past few years, prominent Chinese intellectuals have adopted this second understanding of huayuquan to explain, with mounting urgency, how the countrys lack of influence in international financial, trade, security and media institutions translates to unfair treatment in Chinas interactions with the world.
