The Twentieth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party: A Missed Opportunity for Renewal Politique étrangère, Vol. 87, No. 3, Autumn 2022

The twentieth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), planned for the fall of 2022, is expected to be a demonstration of immobilism.

The CCP is an aging and increasingly opaque organization in which the cult of the leader limits internal discussion, a situation that casts doubt on the party's ability to adapt and survive in the long term.
