Ford Hall Forum: The Great Fire Wall of China: Ethan Guttmann, Hiawatha Bray, Valerie Epps and John Jaw [audio recording]

Date

Description

Ethan Guttmann, author of Losing the New China: A Story of American Commerce, Desire and Betrayal, former Foreign Policy Analyst at the Brookings Institution; Hiawatha Bray, The Boston Globe’s technology reporter; and John Jaw, founder of the Boston’s English-language and Chinese-language editions of The Epoch Times. Moderated by Valerie Epps, Director of the International Law Concentration at Suffolk University. There is no Google in China—at least not one that is uncensored. Websites are blacklisted -Wikipedia, BlogSpot, and BBC News, to name just a few – and content providers like Yahoo!, AOL, and Skype, censor themselves so that they can operate in the country. To the dismay of some human rights advocates and media groups, it is principally American firms providing the Chinese government with technology to filter data as it comes and goes. Is there a better way to deal with China’s laws and policies? Is a restricted internet better than no internet at all? And can the “Golden Shield” stand up to a barrage of software designed specifically to circumvent it? A panel of experts discuss the collision between new technologies and the national interests of the world’s most populous country.
