From my research it evident that the Chinese Communist Party and authoritarian stability remains resilient due to their reinforcement of the three pillars model of authoritarian stability which I will discuss throughout my essay. It is of no surprise that Chinas authoritarian regime remains resilient because like many authoritarian regimes, China has defied and gone against the global trends of democratization. Going in order “Legitimation” is the first pillar I will look at and briefly discuss. Legitimation or legitimization is the action of providing legitimacy. When we think of legitimacy, words like legality, rightfulness, validity and justice spring to mind.
Buddhism had an impact in both empires. However, Confucianism was the official ideology upon the entire Han Dynasty.

Perspectives on the stability of China's system differ. Some scholars with focus on the economic institutions argue that China might function as a new economic growth model, constituting an alternative to the growth model based on the Washington Consensus (Zhao, 2010; Kennedy, 2010). Here, Musacchio and Lazzarini (2012) suggest that China's hybrid form of state capitalism could maintain its economic growth performance. Others argue that China's current institutional set-up could rather be perceived as a model of transition, having appropriate characteristics for catching-up; yet a reaching high-income level at a later stage of economic development might require an institutional transition (Fatás and Mihov, 2009). A different approach considers the interdependency of economic and political institutions.

There are several theories underlying this dissertation such as the activation theory, path dependency, variety of capitalism, and the theory of welfare chauvinism. In this regard, institutions cover three major facets of institutionalization processes and the administrative machineries experience path dependencies (Thoenig, 2011). They are organizations that handle public affairs (Brunsson and Olsen, 1997: 20), serve as political devices and action-oriented systems (Thoenig, 2011) depending on the dissimilar models of national capitalism.
