Flagrant Foul: The NBA and China
Professor Victor Cha, author of The Politics of Sport in Asia, looks at the recent controversy over a tweet in support of Hong Kong protesters that led to Chinese sanctions against the NBA. How should we think about the relationship between the NBA and China? Should players speak out about perceived injustice or should politics and sport remain separated? Dr. Cha will answer these and other questions that frame the specific dispute in the larger context of China’s rise and the liberal international order.
