NATIONAL IDENTITY IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, WHY DEMOCRACY FAILS

Student thesis: Master thesis (including HD thesis)

  • Constanta Botnar
The aim of this thesis is to analyse why the People’s Republic of China has such a difficulty establishing democracy. It has become quite apparent that the ruling Communist party is reluctant to even endeavour to try. This thesis argues that the answer can be found in China’s national identity problem, as well as in the PRC’s firm approach to nationalistic homogenisation. The many ethnic and cultural minorities that currently reside on Chinese soil are threatening the PRC’s territorial integrity, something that Beijing will never stand for.
