On Monday, January 20, Center for Foreign Policy at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies hosted the Asan Dosirak Series with Sam Crane, professor and department chair of political science at Williams College.

In his lecture titled “The Revival of Confucianism: Not a Source of Chinese Soft Power,” Professor Crane considered the recent re-emergence of Confucian thought in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and analyzed its relationship to PRC’s foreign policy “soft power.” He argued that Confucianism will not provide significant soft power resources for the PRC.
