Communist Party of China's Growing Influence in Developing World

Brookings published on 22 January 2019 an analysis titled "Protect the Party: China's Growing Influence in the Developing World" by David Shullman, International Republican Institute.

The author argues that the Communist Party of China (CPC) is making stronger efforts under Xi Jinping to popularize its authoritarian model and undermine developing democracies around the world. China's push for greater influence in the developing world, including Africa, is a product not only of geopolitical opportunism or aggressive policies under a more powerful Xi, but also of a more fundamental external manifestation of China's more hardline authoritarianism at home, deemed necessary for the party's continued survival. The CPC's approach to influence in the developing world is driven by deep-seated and intensifying concern about regime survival.
