Scenario One: page 8
Fragmentation
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) faces escalating demands from a range of
actors who have slowly chipped away at its legitimacy and capacity. When faced
simultaneously with a major national disaster and an international crisis—during
a time of power transition—the CCP is unable to respond effectively and its very
survival is at risk.
Scenario Two: page 18 Strong State Having engaged its best and brightest to successfully address the many challenges faced by China, the CCP remains highly autocratic, making extensive use of
technology to improve government performance and suppress dissent. To safeguard
its legitimacy, the CCP uses polling to continuously track public satisfaction with
government policies and with the performance of senior party figures.
Scenario Three: page 31 Partial “Democracy” Following several perceived failures of governance, the CCP is able to maintain a powerful position only by accommodating greater popular demand for openness
and participation in shaping China’s political and economic agenda.
