Study Times: What is a Culture Superpower?

Study Times, a magazine of the Chinese Communist Party Central Party School, recently published an article on how to define “Culture Superpower.” The article described three aspects of a culture superpower: (1) the nation must have relatively strong cultural charm, which is demonstrated by its self-confidence and attractiveness; (2) a culture superpower must be able to create, produce and distribute cultural elements, which include cultural innovation, an advanced culture industry and modern media; (3) a culture superpower must have a baseline indicator that is reflected by the quality of its people – their quality includes moral standards as well as scientific and artistic standards. All these aspects should have deep roots in the political, economic, and social lives of the people.
