I have just returned to my office from this very interesting event. The conference lasted for 2 days and was organized in the Palace on Isle in Lazienki Park, very close to Mysliwiecki Palace, the place of secret negotiations between China and USA.

I went to a presentation from one of my students not too long ago. It was about the perceptions. Where does the western mythology about China come from and is it justified? Clearly not. But what was interesting was the view put forward that all many people really know about China dates from the Cultural Revolution. We know Mao, Tiananmen Square 1989 and the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. We lap up the notion that China has become the factory of the world, that China’s growth is to be both admired and mistrusted.
