ABSTRACT

Consolidation of Political Power in China Under Xi Jinping, Implications for the PLA and Domestic Security Forces, Testimony of Timothy R. Heath, Before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, February 7, 2019   [open html - 0B]

"This testimony examines how the concentration of political power in China under President Xi Jinping affects its military and domestic security forces. For context, I will briefly review the broader background trends against which Chinese leaders, headed by Xi, have consolidated political power. I will then explore how these trends have affected China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the implications for the country's domestic security forces, most notably the People's Armed Police (PAP), the Ministry of Public Security (MPS), and the Ministry of State Security (MSS)."
