STADIG MER SPENT OM TAIWANS FRAMTID

Sentrum i Taipeh

Kinas vapenskrammel utanför Taiwan blir allt ljudligare och antalet kinesiska militärplan som tar sig in i den taiwanesiska luftförsvarszonen slår nya rekord. Amerikanska militärchefer varnar för ett kinesiskt blixtanfall och samarbetet mellan USA och Taiwan ökar. Taiwankonflikten är på nytt en storpolitisk fråga när rivaliteten mellan Kina och USA hårdnar, skriver Martina Johannesson, redaktör vid Utrikespolitiska institutet.

PARTIET KORRIGERER MARKEDSKREFTENE

Fra: https://merics.org/en

Utsnitt av partiets 18. kongress, 2012

The CCP is clearly trying to shift away from economic growth as the chief source of its legitimacy and instead focus on addressing causes for societal discontent. It also wants to consolidate its control over actors in the private sector, ensuring they serve the party’s political agenda rather than their own economic interests. In the run-up to the 2022 Party Congress, it may be seen as politically useful to pursue these popular moves – stockholders and the wealthy be damned – especially if Xi Jinping and his cohort want to keep their positions.

«PARTIET ÄR SOM GUD. HAN ÄR ŌVERALLT. DU KAN BARA INTE SE HONOM»

Fra: https://www.ui.se/utrikesmagasinet

Xi Jinping i FN 2015

När Kinas kommunistparti nu firar hundraårsjubileum går propagandan på högvarv och dess stolthet känner inga gränser. Misslyckanden, ohyggliga umbäranden och skandaler sopas under mattan.
Partiet genomsyrar tillvaron i jättelandet och dess samhällsystem väntas nu alltmer gå på export.
Men rörelsen är inte den enhetliga monolit som den så ofta ger sken av, skriver Kinakännaren Kristina Sandklef.

FOR SENT Å HINDRE KONFLIKT MED KINA?

Fra: https://www.theguardian.com/

Is it too late to halt the slide towards all-out confrontation between China and the western democracies? An apparently conciliatory speech last week by Xi Jinping led some observers to suggest China’s president may want to mend fences. But a change of tone in Beijing will not cut much ice in Washington unless Xi’s aggressive policies change, too.

KOMMUNISTPARTIET ER 100 ÅR

Fra: https://merics.org/

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was established in Shanghai on July 23, 1921. But it has little in common with the present-day CCP. Mao Zedong was very present at the first Party Congress, which announced the fight against class distinctions, the overthrow of the bourgeoisie through a proletarian revolution and the collectivization of production. What followed were years of civil war against the ruling Kuomintang party, violent propaganda campaigns and internal party purges.

KINAS KAMP MOT KLIMAENDRINGER OG FORURENSNING

Fra: Council on Foreign Relations

  • China is the world’s top emitter, producing more than a quarter of the world’s annual greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change.
  • It pledged to cut emissions under the Paris Agreement, reduce coal use, and invest in renewable energy. But its Belt and Road Initiative still finances coal-fired power plants abroad. 
  • Air pollution, water scarcity, and soil contamination remain threats to the health and livelihoods of China’s people, increasing dissatisfaction with the government.

KINA I ARKTIS

Fra: https://www.brookings.edu/

New analysis reveals that China describes the Arctic as one of the world’s “new strategic frontiers” and is seeking to become a “polar great power.” Though it downplays this goal publicly, it has taken steps to exert greater influence in the region by joining its institutions, like the Arctic Council as a permanent observer, and engaging in high-level diplomacy. Likewise, it has increased its military investments, dispatched naval vessels to the Arctic, and built its first icebreaker. Chinese military texts treat the Arctic as a zone of future military competition, raising questions within NATO — which is also focused on Russia’s resurgent presence in the region — about how to ensure the Arctic remains stable and free from conflict.
