Cheng Li Quoted in Reuters Article
Professor of Government and China expert Cheng Li was quoted in an article about the anticipated change in Chinese leadership. Li says “the scenario that still makes the most sense in terms of maintaining stability and Party prestige is Jiang [Zemin] and others of his generation retire from the powerful Politburo Standing Committee as planned and without incident.” Many have speculated that Jiang will keep his military job, or the Party post or both positions, when the elders in China’s political party retire in September or October.

Cheng Li in Reuters Article on Jiang Zemin
Government Professor Cheng Li comments on rumors that Jiang Zemin wants to stay on as the Communist party chief. The rumors are based on the state media campaign commending his plan to modernize the party as well as reports of private letters and circulars sent to Central Committee members commending his leadership. Li says, “many Central Committee members are not from Jiang’s support base of Shanghai and are unlikely to vote for him at the Congress.” He adds, “Jiang does not have the power to do what he wants. There are limits on his power. I think most people want him to go.” China’s leaders have an unwritten rule that they will not seek office after 70. Jiang is 75. More ...

Stephen Orvis
Orvis Publishes Article in African Issues
Associate Professor of Government Stephen Orvis published "Moral Ethnicity and Political Tribalism in Kenya's 'Virtual Democracy'" in African Issues.

In his article, Orvis focuses on the close relationship between politics and ethnicity that is so prevalent in Kenya.  As he follows the political history of the nation, Orvis discovers the ways in which the Kenyan political scene is changing.    When the one-party system was abolished in the early nineties it created a “double-edged sword,” where political tribalism was able to flourish, and where public debates and democratic principles began to take root.  Orvis demonstrates that while it is easy to see the negativity and violence associated with tribalism, we must look more closely in order to uncover the beginnings of a more accountable, democratic Kenyan government.    More ...
