Politics and Political Development in the People's Republic of China|
Spring 2019 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
Despite the collapse of the U.S.S.R. and Eastern European Communist regimes since 1989, the People's Republic of China (P.R.C.) has retained a one-party regime while it continues its economic reforms begun in 1978, before reforms in other communist counties got under way. In contrast with former communist regimes, the P.R.C. is attempting socialist market reforms while retaining the people's democratic dictatorship under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party. We will examine the politics of this anomaly, study several public policy areas, and evaluate the potential for China's democratization.
