Governing China's Population: From Leninist to Neoliberal Biopolitics

Since the turn of the millennium the regime has initiated a drastic shift from "hard" Leninist methods of birth planning toward "soft" neoliberal approaches involving indirect regulation by the state and self-regulation by citizens themselves. Population policy, once a lagging sector in China's transition from communism, is now helping lead the country toward more modern and internationally accepted forms of governance. This study also illuminates the far-reaching consequences for China's society and politics of deep state intrusion in individual reproduction.

Like Mao's Great Leap Forward, Deng's one-child policy has created vast social suffering and human trauma. Yet power over population has also been positive and productive, promoting China's global rise by creating new kinds of "quality" persons equipped to succeed in the world economy. Politically, the PRC's population project has strengthened the regime and created a whole new field of biopolitics centering on the production and cultivation of life itself.

Even within the structure of biopower, the relations between state power and individual power are intertwined.

Additional Information

Changes in the power structure should be evaluated in a more profound social context: The empowerment of people not only enhances the micro-power of the individual and changes the power structure—it also improves the quality of state power. As China moves through the twenty-first century, it faces a new set of problems related to demography. Can it solve such problems—rapid population aging and the serious imbalance in sex ratio at birth—without draconian measures?
