Regime strategies for maintaining political control are evolving in contemporary China. The Chinese Communist Party faces increasingly politicized challenges today. The CCP’s response has been a paradigmatic shift in control strategy toward an apolitical, less ideological approach to managing politicized challenges. China’s efficiency-based strategy for control and new culture of control warrant critical examination.
