Ein Gespenst geht um in China - das Gespenst sozialer Instabilität
AbstractThe incidence of unrest in China has risen dramatically over the last decade. Sources of unrest include unfair working conditions, lack of social security, lay-offs, low and unpaid wages, insufficient compensation for confiscated land, fees, tolls and other local burdens, environmental degradation, and official corruption. The central leadership is aware of the challenges posed by social unrest and has not only announced new policies aimed at addressing social and livelihood issues, but also adopted a somewhat more sophisticated strategy to deal with protesters. However, most protests are still suppressed by local authorities. Even though incidents of unrest are widespread, they are so far localized and do not seem to threaten the regime’s.
