Associate professor publishes article on rise of China

Published: 21 December 2012


Thomas Ambrosio, associate professor of political science at NDSU, published “The Rise of the ‘China Model’ and ‘Beijing Consensus’: Evidence of Authoritarian Diffusion” in Contemporary Politics. The article examines eight years of U.S. and global media to analyze perception about the perceived legitimacy, effectiveness and applicability of China’s model of authoritarian-capitalism. It finds that, at the present time, concerns about China’s rise precipitating an anti-democratic ‘reverse wave’ are exaggerated. Instead, China’s influence on the global balance between democracy and authoritarianism is more subtle and indirect.
