Assessing Xi Jinping’s Anti-corruption Fight: Views From Five Scholars
Abstract: Official corruption in the post-Tiananmen era is marked by systematic looting of state-owned assets, widespread abuse of power, and utter lawlessness. Since coming to power in 2012, Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has launched an unrelenting campaign to root out corruption in the party-state. We invite five distinguished scholars — an economist, a sociologist, an anthropologist, and two political scientists — to analyze the causes and manifestations of corruption in contemporary China and evaluate the consequences and prospects of Xi’s anti-corruption.
