The Battle for China’s Spirit - Religious Revival, Repression, and Resistance under Xi Jinping

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Feb 03, 2018 | Freedom House

This study by Freedom House examines the dynamics of religious revival, repression, and resistance in China. It focuses on seven communities that together account for over 350 million believers: the country’s officially recognized religions - Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism, Islam and Protestantism - as well as Falun Gong, the largest of several banned religious movements, and quasi-Christian sects. The report shows how a combination of violent and nonviolent methods by the government curbs the growth of religious communities and proscribes certain beliefs and practices, while harnessing aspects of religion that could serve its political interests.
