Understanding China’s Political System
Kerry Dumbaugh (au); Michael F. Martin (au)
At one level, China is a one-party state that has been ruled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since 1949. But rather than being rigidly hierarchical and authoritarian, political power in China now is diffuse, complex, and at times highly competitive. Despite the CCP’s grip on power, present-day China’s political process is infused with other political actors that influence and sometimes determine policy. Contents of this report: (I) Introduction and Overview: China’s Preeminent Political Institutions; (II) The Chinese Communist Party: The Political Bureau (Politburo); The Politburo Standing Committee (PSC); The Secretariat; Party Discipline; (III) The Chinese Government: The State Council; The Ministries; Government Control; (IV) The National People’s Congress; (V) The People’s Liberation Army; (VI) Relationships Among Leaders; (VII) Other Important Political Actors: Leading Small Groups; Government-Sponsored Research Institutions; Central Party School; The “Princelings”; (VIII) Provincial, Municipal, and Local Governments; (IX) Trends and Idiosyncrasies of China’s Political System: China’s View of Democracy and Political Reform; Coordination of Central and Local Governments; Factionalism; Modern Media; (X) Implications for Congress. Appendices: A. Official Members of the CCP’s Political Bureau (Politburo) and its StandingCommittee; B. Official Members of China’s State Council (by title); C. Current Members of Central Military Commission.
