Study Times: The Keys to Resolving Social Conflicts

Study Times, a magazine of the Chinese Communist Party Central Party School, recently published an article discussing how to resolve the social conflicts occurring throughout China. The article categorized social conflicts into six types: conflicts caused by differences in income, conflicts caused by misaligned policies, conflicts caused by growing “social anxiety,” conflicts caused by a lack of proper administrative control over the Internet, conflicts caused by the abuse of government power, and conflicts caused by incomplete reforms. The author expressed the belief that the keys to the resolution of these conflicts are: (1) Relying more on the people to enhance social policies; (2) establishing a comprehensive “social management system;” (3) building a widespread “psychosocial intervention mechanism” by setting positive social expectations; and (4) improving Internet administration by acquiring the latest technologies.
