Confucianism in Contemporary Chinese Politics
This project investigates the role of Confucianism in contemporary Chinese politics. Following the success of China’s market economic reform, socialist ideology, once defined the social order of pre-reform China, is beginning to fade away in China’s modernization. At the same, the capitalistic spirit that drives the phenomenal growth of the country is also showing its malign nature under an authoritarian regime in recent decades. To fill the void left behind by socialist ideology, traditional Chinese culture, particular Confucianism, is being revived. At the popular level, Confucianism provides a cultural identity as well as an ethical code that regulate people’s behaviour. For the ruling elites, Confucianism could renew the governing legitimacy of the authoritarian rule in China’s post-socialist transition. It also provides the cultural resources for China to build its soft power as a complement to its growing economic and military strength in world politics.The project is the first comprehensive study of the implication of the invocation of Confucianism in contemporary Chinese politics and international relations. Different from existing studies on neo-Confucianism, which focus on the intellectual and philosophical development of Confucianism, this project looks at how Confucianism is being selectively appropriated for political purposes, both in terms of creating a new domestic social order and a new normative structure that govern China’s international relations. It will contribute to our understanding of the direction of China’s post-socialist modernization.
