Democracy in China a billion small voices
Explores the impact of democratic village elections and how they could reshape the future of China, where approximately 80% of the population is rural. This program focuses on the efforts of the Carter Center to support China's initiative by inviting Chinese delegates to observe U.S. primaries and by sending emissaries to China to assist in the mechanics of gathering and tabulating votes. Although some Chinese are skeptical, many believe that establishing democracy at the local level will pave the way for a democratic national government.; Some dialogue in Chinese with English voice overs.
