Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, leadership


International Relations | Political Science


President Xi Jinping is a pivotal actor on the world stage and holds powerful positions within both the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party. Assessing the president of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) is an increasingly important subject as the United States shifts more diplomatic and military resources to Pacific to implement their Pivot to Asian strategy. The aim of this paper is to evaluate academic literature that focuses on Xi Jinping as the current leader of the People’s Republic of China. That information will then be analyzed using techniques derived from literature on political leadership studies such as political psychology. The literature from two schools of political leadership study will be applied to the presidency of Xi Jinping resulting in a comprehensive assessment of his leadership style.
