• 24 min

He has rewritten the history books to affirm his place in China’s national narrative and is set for another decade in power. But who exactly is the Chinese Premiere, Xi Jinping? And what is his guiding political thought?  In today’s podcast, we talk to SOAS’ Olivia Cheung to explain his rise to power and what his first decade in office tells us about his priorities both home and abroad - from a crackdown on dissidents and the Uyghur people - to an expanding Chinese empire that could one day include Taiwan.
