Restricted access

Chinese development in recent decades showcases the new global politics of research: from an insular position with virtually no visibility at all, China is now the second largest research producer in the world and a dominant innovator in the making. This chapter traces China’s political development from Deng’s famous speech in 1978 up to its very recent tendencies of research and innovation policy, highlighting not only the opportunities but also the constraints of China’s policies: authoritarianism and internationalization, political concertation and decentralization, among others.
