Written by Aaron Glasserman and Marcia Wythes. The article discusses Pan Yue, who was elected as a full member of the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee and has been the head of the State Council’s National Ethnic Affairs Commission since June 2022.

Pan’s election to the Central Committee suggests that the Xi administration’s hard turn toward assimilationism will likely continue and perhaps intensify, as he is known to espouse assimilationist views. The article also highlights the aggressive implementation of policies related to “managing” ethnic minorities, which has included mass internment, forced sterilization, and restrictions on movement, among other measures.

Pan is regarded as a talented politician and effective communicator who has repeatedly staked out bold policy positions in his winding path to the center of Chinese political power.
