Open Newsroom: How should Ireland relate to China's rising power?

China is experiencing a seemingly unstoppable rise as a global superpower, how should Ireland approach issues like trade and human rights with this growing economy?


WILL CHINA BECOME the leading global superpower for the 21st century, and how should Ireland relate to Chinese economic might?

These are some of the questions that help to frame our discussion of China this month for The Good Information Project.

From human rights concerns to the outlook of Ireland’s Chinese community, our journalists are working to frame the topic and probe our ties to the second-largest economy in the world.
