Polish Transformation in Chinese Public Discourse

The article attempts to analyse basic understanding of post-1989 political transformation in Poland through the eyes of Chinese diplomats, policymakers, scholars, and journalists. For deeper understanding of Chinese perspective in perceiving Poland, the author applies the discourse analysis that is mainly based on quantitative analysis of articles published in Chinese magazines, such as Nanfang Chuang, and academic journals published by Chinese universities and think-tanks, such as Russian Studies, Syberian Studies, and Problems of Contemporary Socialism. In the first part of the article, the author introduces the major institution that referred to Polish problems in China. The second issue discussed are the key assumptions of 1980s in Poland: the picture presented is based mainly on the book published by Wang Yizhou and Su Shaozhi, in which these issues were described. In the last part, the author focuses on Polish political and administrative bodies, such as the Supreme Chamber of Control and Polish foreign policy, as analysed by the Chinese. In the final conclusion, the author argues that the Chinese use the pragmatic approach, and hope to learn from the Polish transformation in order to secure and maintain the next stage of Chinese reforms.
