A talk by Prof. Dr. Thomas Heberer [in German language]
After decades of economic development and gradual political opening China now faces the challenge of redirecting its model of growth – an agenda with far-reaching political and social consequences. An important source of stability to the political system was and still is solid economic growth. However, there are also additional factors contributing to the adaptability and relative stability of China’s one-party system.
In his talk Prof. Dr. Heberer will discuss control capabilities of and the background of state capacity in the People’s Republic of China. Which are the mechanisms that guarantee the implementation of national policies right down to the local level? Are there limits to political legitimization based on economic success? And what are the objectives of the new Chinese government under Xi Jinping?
