Community Discussion Guide

This China from the Inside community discussion guide contains material meant for any type of community forum - be it focused on public policy, civic participation, faith-based, or for a book group-type setting. In addition to typical discussion prompts, this guide includes handouts in grid format designed to help viewers use what they already know about the U.S. to deepen their understanding of China and to consider what insights about their own experiences can be gained by looking at people, policies, and events in China. We hope the questions and prompts will foster stimulating community discussion.
