“The Fate of Intra-Party Democracy in China: Paradoxes, Perils and Prospects” will be the topic of Cheng Li (Brookings Institution) in the third lecture in the Ethics and Public Series, “The Difficulty of Democracy.” He will discuss experiments in democracy within the Chinese Communist Party, describing the paradoxical trends that they reflect, assessing their current prospects, and connecting these developments with competition among political elites, the preeminence of Xi Jinping, and such recent events as the ending of presidential term limits. The director of the Thornton China Center at the Brookings Institution, he has long been a major figure in the study of political elites in China, through influential work including his recent book, Chinese Politics in the Xi Jinping Era: Reassessing Collective Leadership (2016).
