This week 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 the state for formulating and even implementing policy. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio edited by Sam Ellis. Produced by Jeffrey Bean.
