Whether we think sport and politics should or should not be mixed, it is clear that in the case of the Beijing Olympics the two have never been more closely intertwined. But how has the Olympics impacted on China? Has it improved or worsened China's image in the world? And how will it effect its future relations with the West?

Chris Hughes is the senior lecturer in the Department of International Relations at LSE. Athar Hussain is director of the Asia Research Centre. Martin Jacques is a visiting research fellow in the Asia Research Centre, LSE. Chen Jian is the Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs at LSE. Mark Leonard is the executive director of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email or phone 020 7955 6043.
