Challenge to Political Stabilization in China: Risk Factors and Political System


After the acceleration of China’s transition toward the market economy in the 1990s, various new actors have emerged, the political process has become increasingly complex, and the Communist Party of China has confronted serious problems.

Our study attempts to draw a comprehensive picture of China’s problems by analyzing political and social issues such as community administration in urban areas, the expropriation of land in rural areas, labor relations, the administration of state-owned assets, state integration, and foreign policy. All these problems and issues are intricately intertwined. Only a comprehensive understanding of the nature of China’s problems may make it possible for the international community to assist its future socioeconomic development and political stabilization.
