Fang Kecheng (方可成, born in 1987), a Chinese journalist and columnist working for Southern Weekly (南方周末).
From 2004 on, I spent 6 years in Peking University (also known as Beida), got Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree, both in Journalism. I also graduated from the Human Rights Master Program jointly held by Peking University Law School and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law of Lund University (Sweden). In July 2010, I graduated from PKU and joined Southern Weekly.
Several years ago, I started to write a Chinese blog focusing on Chinese media and social issues. I have been trying to offer my independent opinion about my country. This continuous work got some attention, including Danwei‘s recommendation for my blog to netizens wanting to learn about China.
In October 2010, I started this English blog concerning on various aspects of China and Chinese people. I am chiefly interested in the topics of the functioning and changing of China’s political system, the role played by China’s media in the reform, and the development of civil society. However, topics on China’s economics, culture and other social issues will also be introduced and analyzed in this blog.
I will translate some of my reports in Southern Weekly, but I want to emphasize that this is my personal blog, and the blog posts only represent my personal views, not my employer’s.
