Analyzing China’s Foreign Policy: Domestic Politics, Public Opinion And Leaders
Date of this Version
This chapter identifies the changed domestic context of the construction of Chinese foreign policy. The use of professional staff unhindered by communist ideology—and the attention of the public—is increasingly constraining and guiding Chinese international relations. For example, when nationalist Chinese call for action against the Japanese arrest of Chinese fishermen, how can the Chinese Communist Party justify inaction? The role of leaders is identified as an emerging area of study.
