Prof. Harry Roque and I were recently interviewed by Caixin Media, a path-breaking, Beijing-based bi-lingual publication, on the Scarborough Schoal Dispute between the Philippines and China. We didn’t know how the interviews would be presented. It turns out the magazine also got on board two Chinese discussants, who were separately interviewed.
They were Zhang Jianjing, managing editor of China Reform, Caixin’s monthly magazine featuring extensive commentary and analysis on political and economic issues and Huang Shan, chief of Caixin’s international desk.
First, a note on Caixin Media:
Caixin Media is recognized for fearless investigative journalism as well as comprehensive coverage of business and finance in China. It was hailed internationally as “one of China’s more outspoken media organizations.” At the end of last year, Caixin was awarded the 2011 Shorenstein Journalism Award by Stanford University, the first Asian winner in the award’s history. Caixin editor-in-chief Hu Shuli was named one of Time Magazine’s Top 100 Influential People in 2011, while managing editor Wang Shuo was named as one of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders earlier this year.
It’s editor-in-chief, Hu Shuli, was profiled in the New Yorker in 2008.
