Abstract

Whilst think tanks in the PRC need to avoid diverting too far from the existing political narratives and do operate within a relatively restricted political environment, we argue that the Chinese think tank is not entirely beholden to a specific political ideology. Despite the constraints think tanks in China have worked within, allowing for some exceptions, there has on the whole been a respect for intellectualism within government. This has meant that Chinese think tanks have filled and continue to perform a vital role in informing policy decisions, albeit while operating within the prevailing ideological climate.
