Project Member(s): Feng, C.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2002

Summary: The Chinese communist party-state is in transition. The possibilities range from liberal democracy, through social democracy to new forms of authoritarianism. One key to the future of China lies in the reflections of intellectuals and members of the ruling elite on this transition. This project examines the current debates in China on its destiny, in particular that between liberals and the new left . In addition to highlighting the process and possible future of intellectual and political development in China, the project also contributes to the wider discussion of change in transitional post-communist societies more generally.''
