This week on the podcast we turn to Chinese politics. In a new article for Foreign Affairs, CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies scholars Christopher Johnson and Scott Kennedy argue that Xi Jinping has reasserted and expanded the role of the Chinese Communist Party in governing China. Chris Johnson joins the podcast to explain how the party has begun to supplant the institutions of China’s state for formulating and implementing policy. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio edited by Samuel Ellis. Produced by Jeffrey Bean.
