Chapter Summary

Since the post-1978 reforms, state policies have increasingly emphasized knowledge as the basis of policy-making, which has led to fierce competition for claims on academic knowledge. This competition also affected CASS's ability to produce officially valued knowledge. In this chapter, the author briefly describes some of the interdependencies between political and academic leaders and their institutions, and points out some of the consequences of this relationship to show how the role of knowledge in policy-making has changed in the reform period. Additionally, by sketching some of the paths along which information and academic works circulate, he illustrates the ways in which the absence of autonomy from political supervision and the threat of intervention affect academic research and writing.

Keywords: academic research; CASS; policy-making; political establishment
