Xi for Life?

Xi for Life?

What Does It Mean for China and the World?


Rory Truex

Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs,

Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

Jointly sponsored by Princeton Area Alumni Association and

the Association of Asian American Alumni of Princeton




Rory Truex's research focuses on Chinese politics and theories of authoritarian rule. His book Making Autocracy Work: Representation and Responsiveness in Modern China investigates the nature of representation in authoritarian systems, specifically the politics surrounding China's National People's Congress (NPC). He argues that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engineering a system of “representation within bounds” in the NPC, fostering information revelation but silencing political activism. Original data on deputy backgrounds and behaviors is used to explore the nature of representation, policymaking, and incentives in this constrained system. 

His research on Chinese politics has been published in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Political Studies, China Quarterly, and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Current projects explore how Chinese citizens evaluate their political system, the relationship between media bias and credibility in non-democracies, and patterns in dissident behavior and punishment.
