Associate professor publishes article on rise of China
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.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
