Specialist Researcher Workshop
6 days/30 hours

Chinese Communist Party politics has been hard to grasp and tricky to analyze since the time of Mao Zedong. It doesn’t help that new Party leaders often change the rules of the game.

Professional China watchers are often bamboozled by the unusual purges, promotions, and policies implemented by Beijing. The era of Xi Jinping is particularly hard to read. Sino-U.S. relations have also taken on a new dimension under President Donald Trump.

New political players may emerge on scene, but getting an accurate read on Party politics is not out of reach if analysts know what is at the core of factional struggle in the Chinese regime.

Our Specialist Researcher Workshop enables China specialists and researchers to broaden their understanding of CCP politics and better read China’s future directions.
