This course offers a conceptual framework for understanding China that highlights the intersection of politics and economics. It shows that rather than develop into a full blown market economy, state and party officials at all levels of the political system maintain significant influence in economic development. Such a “political” economy has had both positive and negative outcomes, which we will assess in detail. We also look at the origins, views, backgrounds and relations among leaders, and how those leaders make decisions about public policy and try to get those decisions implemented down through the system. China has few formal institutions through which citizens can participate in politics, but we will study the strategies Chinese people use to try to influence their leaders’ decisions. Finally, we assess China’s future and whether rapid economic development and the emergence of a vibrant middle class will push China towards greater democracy or whether the single party system is likely to survive into the future. The course is a quite useful background for Chinese Politics Part 2 – China and the World.

CHINESE POLITICS PART 1 – CHINA AND POLITICAL SCIENCE의 최상위 리뷰
Really good programme so far, very clear and structured input from a knowledgeable expert, who is nonetheless able to make the topics covered accessible.\n\nTests are a bit tricky though!
Both enjoyable and informative. It is exactly the sort of crash course in Chinese politics I was looking for and I have been inspired to take my learning on the subject further
A well-structured, thoughtful course delivered by a true expert on the subject. One of the finest courses available throughout the entire Coursera platform.
Comprehensive and practical. Prof. David Zweig's narrative teaching style and his first hand experience made the course content easy to understand.
Refreshingly vivid content and lectures. Above average discussions for social science/politics classes on Coursera. Overall big thumbs up!
I have learned a lot about my roots, professor Zweig is living what he teaches.\n\nThank you so much to Dr Zweig and Coursera
