ABSTRACT

Five Reasons Why Xi's 'Peking Model' Will Struggle Post-COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Xi Jinping's model of governance--from an economically prosperous 'Chinese dream' for its people to a 'Community of Shared Future for Humanity' with China leading the way--has provided the reference points for Beijing's diplomacy. That the Chinese political system can help build an equitable order favoring the developing world has been central to Xi's international outreach. The objective of such an order is to position China at the helm of a 'Sino-centric' global order--a 'Peking model.' The model not only promotes Xi as 'globalizer in chief,' but also creates a wall of regulations between China and the world by controlling the flow of capital, ideas, and culture, ensuring regime sustainability for the Communist Party of China domestically. In the post Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] order this will not be easy for China, and Xi's Peking model will come under serious challenges."
