Assessing the Xi Jinping Doctrine: Changes and Continuities in China

at

College of Social Sciences

National Sun Yat-sen University , Gushan District, Kaohsiung City 804

Xi Jinping, the current President of People's Republic of China (PRC) and the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, has ruled the world's most populous country and second largest economy for over 4 years. Chinese politics has gone through tremendous changes during his reign, and he has centralized power to an extent that, as some China watchers have suggested, matches the totalitarian authority of Mao Zedong. Likewise, China under Xi Jinping has acted much more assertively, ambitiously, and proactively in foreign relations, not afraid of confronting great powers and neighboring countries on issues such as the South China Sea and East Asian order. More significantly, the Xi Jinping administration has put effort into redefining the liberal norms of post-WWII international society, although with mixed results.
As the 19th CCP Congress is drawing near (to be held in Fall 2017), we could not find a more opportune time than May 2017 to critically examine Chairman Xi's ruling style and consequential impact he brought in.
The NSYSU Research Center for Social Sciences(中山大學逸仙社會科學研究中心), in partnership with University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, San Diego, will host the international conference titled "Is There A Xi Jinping Doctrine: Assessing Changes and Continuities in Chinese Politics since 2012" on May 22-23, at NSYSU College of Social Sciences. The Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange kindly provides event grants for the Conference.
A number of distinguished political scientists, senior China scholars, and rising stars in China Studies will present original papers to the Conference, including:

Lowell Dittmer (UC Berkeley)
Frank Liu (NSYSU)
Margaret E. Roberts (UC San Diego)
Anthony Spires (CUHK)
Diana Fu (U. Toronto)
Greg Distelhorst (MIT)
Hsin-Hsin Pan (National Taiwan U.)
Wen-Chin Wu (Academia Sinica)
Aileen SP Baviera (UP Diliman)
Jessica C. Liao (North Carolina State)
Alexey A. Seminov (Russian Academy of Sciences)
Ian Chen (NSYSU)
Chiahao Hsu (NSYSU)
Titus C. Chen (NSYSU)


The two-day Conference is composed of five panels and two keynote speeches. Panel topics include:

Inforpolitics and ideology
Law & bureaucracy
Political participation & social control
PRC's relations with Southeast Asian & Eurasian neighbors
PRC's role in global & regional governance.

A training session for the R stm package (for topic modeling and text analytics) will follow the Conference at the same venue (SS 4001), and Professor Margaret E. Roberts of UC-San Diego is the instructor.
