It argues that the lack of an authority higher than nation-states, causes states to act only in competitive and selfish ways, and that material power determines relations between states. John Mearsheimer supports this by saying, “States are potentially dangerous to each other. Although some states have more military might than others and are therefore more dangerous”(Mearsheimer, 70). Instead of keeping identities and interests in mind when determining relations between states, realists assert that anarchy will cause states to act solely in their best interest. Kenneth Waltz attempted to explain a structural realist perspective about anarchic structure.
He views the increasing abundance of choices for the individual as the most obvious change in Chinese society. By the turn of the 21st century, Yan argues that a twofold social transformation had taken place, encompassing both the rise of the individual and the individualization of the social structure. He contends that even those in socially disadvantaged positions now accept an ethic of personal responsibility for their successes and failures.We use data from the World Values Survey (WVS) for our analyses. The WVS is a repeated, multi-country cross-sectional survey that has been conducted in China in 1990, 1995, 2001, and 2007. We exclude the 1995 wave in our analysis because its sampling frame differed dramatically from those of the other three waves.
In the last quarter century, China has been experiencing three dimensional transformation of the economy: from a planned economy to a market economy, from an agrarian economy to an industrial economy, from a relative closed economy to a relative open economy. By the time Deng took power, he made the historic decision “reform and opening-up” at the Third Plenum of the CCP Eleventh Party Congress on December 18-22, 1978. 1978–1984 the first parts of Chinese economic reforms in the late 1970s and early 1980s involved the bottom-up approach of reforms focusing on agricultural Reform, decentralization of the government, entry of township and village enterprises, state-Owned Enterprise reform, . Deng decollectivized agriculture and emphasized
Now the KKH has been upgraded and expanded to accommodate the increasing volume of trade between China and Pakistan. Recently Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Pakistan and announced construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). This corridor is part of the new silk route that will connect the western part of China with the markets of the Middle East. The expansion of an artery of the ancient Silk Route in Gilgit-Baltistan into a major economic corridor will not only help renew the old route, but also transform it into the major route between Inner and South Asia – and beyond. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor has been welcomed by policy and decision-makers as a ‘game changer’ for Pakistan’s economy and for a major geo-strategic shift in the region.
Idealists see the role of power as an undesirable factor to be eliminated. Idealists see realism as a set of assumptions about how and why states behave like they do, rather than a theory of foreign relations. They strongly criticise the realist thesis that the struggle for power and security is natural. They reject such a fatalistic orientation claiming that power is not natural, and simply a temporary phase of human history. They believe that by adhering completely and consciously to moral values moral values in behaviour, power struggle and war can be eliminated.
As China is becoming more globalized and connected to the world, more people choose to study abroad and to gain experience as global citizens. Also, more Chinese parents sent their children to foreign countries, expecting them to get a degree.

Below some of Marx criticism of this idea by different scholars in discussed. “Both Marx and Hegel agree that the separation of the state from civil society is a paradox that needs to be resolved. However, Marx rejects Hegel 's explanation that puts an institutional order between the state as ethical agency and civil society as the sphere of private interests. Marx 's views, then, are in contrast to Hegel 's in explicitly seeking to resolve the state-society separation on the level of society as the true reality of human beings. Marx sought to realise 'the essence of socialised man ' in what he called a 'true democracy”.
Samuel Huntington (1993) believed that economic modernization might increase the growth of urbanization and the rising of middle class, which could unleash a constellation of social forces to pine for democratic governance. In addition, the middle class tended to be revolutionary in its early development and they became conservative over time. However, the landscape of middle class in China was not the same as the Chinese middle class remained conservative all the time, as they did not ask for the autonomy and independent from the
Introduction China has witnessed tremendous change in its social sector during the span of last several decades. Generally, China’s social sector has experienced four stages of development since the country was established in 1949 (Deng, 2013). The first stage, from 1949 to 1966, is viewed by Deng and other observers as the forming period of Chinese social sector; a large number of sizable the organizations in the social sector were founded, most of which worked on issues related commerce, arts, science and technology. 1966—1978 is identified by Deng as the second stage — the lag period; the Cultural Revolution stopped most organizations from functioning and prevented new social actors from emerging. After the lag period, the redeveloping
